Carrying avy gear in the backcountry is a must. Carrying extra gear isn't. The super-light Black Diamond Carbon Probe Ski Pole serves dual duty as a beefy freeride ski pole and a rigid avalanche probe. Send the biggest lines with full trust in your poles, and if things take a serious turn, quickly screw the carbon lower shafts together to form a 182cm probe. The grips are designed with an aggressive hook point at the top that aides in leveraging bars, buckles, and heel risers, and the straps are designed to stay open for an easy entry. The generous 100mm (4 in) powder baskets provide ample float in the deep stuff.
