The Traverse Pro ski poles have all the features of the Traverse pole but on the next level. These poles are great for backcountry days and have a redesigned grip.The poles also feature a touring ring with Soft Touch upper shaft coating for quick choke-ups in steep or sidehill terrain.
We've all been there: blasting through the trees, and that hallway you try to sneak through is just a touch too narrow for comfort. Your poles get stuck on some branches, and suddenly, you're lying on the snow with a tweaked shoulder and wrist. Black Diamond has been there, so they equipped the Black Diamond Traverse Pro Adjustable Ski Poles with a snazzy SwitchRelease(TM) straps. Now, when you load the strap heavily it will break away, kind of like those warmup pants you had during middle school soccer. Top it off with the touring features that brought you to this page in the first place, and you'll be wondering how you ever managed without the Traverse Pro.
From early-season novelty turns to mid-winter storms and spring objectives, the Black Diamond Traverse Pro ski poles are primed for any day in the backcountry. The Traverse Pro poles feature a durable all-aluminum construction with a redesigned grip for improved ergonomics. FlickLock Pro adjustability allows for quick and secure length changes, while innovative SwitchRelease technology in the wrist strap and a lockable release adds a measure of safety in the event a pole gets caught in bushes or trees.
