    Details

    Go the distance.

    Your knee can handle the first six miles of the trail into Wind River's Cirque, but the last six miles will require Black Diamond's Alpine FLZ Trekking Poles. These poles fold into three sections so you can strap them to your backpack for the flat part, and Black Diamond's SlideLock secures the poles so they don't collapse on you midstep. FlickLock adjustments let you lengthen or shorten each pole to tackle various degrees of steepness, and both the tips and baskets are interchangeable for powder baskets if you want to take these poles skiing.

    • Trekking poles collapse so you can hike flat terrain barehanded
    • SlideLock keeps the aluminum shaft solidly connected while hiking
    • FlickLock allows quick-and-easy adjustments on the trail
    • Included baskets and tips designed specifically for rocky terrain
    • Item #BLD00SC

    Packable and Sturdy

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I ordered these poles for a backpacking trip and was curious to see how they would stand up to five days of heavy use in varying conditions. After a week on the trail, I was blown away by their performance. The SlideLock mechanism made them feel incredibly sturdy and the carbide tip performed great on snow, mud, and dirt. For trickier sections that required scrambling or the use of an ice axe, I was able to fold these up and stash them in the side pocket of my bag, then pull them out when needed and reassemble them in seconds - often faster than others in my group with traditional poles! The cork grip really helped keep my hands dry during sweatier parts of the day, a big improvement (for me) over rubber grips. I'm excited to swap out the baskets and get these out for some ski touring this winter!

    For reference - I'm about 5'10" and went with the 120-140cm. After some extensive use, I found that 120cm is my ideal length but I'd prefer the option to go shorter in certain situations. I would recommend the 105-125cm for others my height.

    Unanswered Question

    the Tech Specs say the grip is FOAM. Is that right? Previous models had cork grip with a foam lower grip for steeper terrain. Still looks like that in the icture.
