Description

Dual-duty big-mountain tool.

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.

  • Carbon fiber lower and aluminum upper shaft
  • Lower shafts screw together to form a 182cm probe
  • Dual-density rubber grips with an aggressive hook point
  • Easy-entry stay-open strap design
  • Aluminum FlickLock Pro one-hand adjustment
  • 100mm (4in) powder baskets

Good pole, but you still need a probe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love these poles--lightweight and super strong, I should have bent them several times by now but haven't--but please, don't use them as a probe-substitute. Changing from pole to probe is a process that wastes valuable seconds and isn't terribly simple, plus the finished probe isn't very long. Only other complaint is minor--the paint scratched off within the first few trips out.

Durable and Functional

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I still carry a fast-to-deploy probe in my pack when I'm in the back country.

I have used them as a probe, but not in an avalanche situation. I bought these to use on a mountaineering trips where I would need to probe our camp sites. It's a pretty specific circumstance, but the poles did their job.

In the last 7 years I have used them as a probe three times, and for skiing and hiking too manny too count. It looks like I'll be using them for 7 more years.

Great set of Poles!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've taken these poles out quite a bit now and really like them! They are VERY light and so far, very durable. Initially, I had to tighten the flick lock quite a bit as I kept losing the lower section! However, once dialed in, the new 360 degree flick lock implementation is superb!

However, I'm not sure that I would recommend relying on these poles as your sole probe for emergency rescue situations as an actual probe deploys much faster.

Go hard or go home

Seriously bulletproof set of poles that look good and feel great. Ability to transform into avalanche probe is a great feature that frees up space in your pack. Fantastic product..
