Why We Like The Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork Trekking Poles

Boasting tons of versatility and a high-quality construction that helps us over whatever obstacles lie in front of us, the Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork Trekking Poles are a reliable partner for any and all adventures on the trail. From mellow hills to steep upper-mountain terrain, we always have the extra support needed to keep moving. They're made with a lightweight yet ultra-strong carbon fiber, and feature two locking adjustment points to find the perfect height then pack them down easily when not in use. They've got a premium cork grip that feels comfortable in your and also wicks moisture as hike, and an extended non-slip foam grip that lets you choke up your grip when you're taking on steep and technical terrain.

Alpine Carbon Cork

Purchased these trekking poles to prepare for hiking the PCT. I have chosen these poles for the right balance between comfort, weight, and durability. Would be nice if they fold into even smaller size, but they are small enough to fit in the side pocket of my backpack. So far they have served me well.

Incredibly Durable

Before purchasing the Alpine Carbon Corks, I had read that maybe the aluminum would be better overall for hardcore hunting in Alaska. I bought the Alpine Carbon poles anyways and am glad that I did. After trekking/packing 20-25 miles in the Alaskan range on the Alaskan peninsula over eight days, I can honestly say these poles made all the difference. Through alders, over boulder fields, across snow slides and flats, these poles were put to the test and never failed. Mine are Al scarred up but I love them. By the way, I’m 6’-2” tall and 235lbs so these can support big boys.

Fantastic poles!

Only one hike in but with enough other positive reviews and loads of research before my purchase, I’m a happy hiker. Next stop, the PCT.

Great poles for assisted walking

Bought these polls to aid in daily walking due to a disability. I needed poles that are light, adjustable,highly stable to catch me when I stumble and easy packing when not in use. These poles work perfectly, look great and are extremely comfortable. Easy to exchange carbon tips for rubber ones for road use. Great all way around. Hope they will last me a long time.

Beautiful poles

These are my first trekking poles (yes, I've needed them but never prioritized buying). I did my research and finally purchased these. They are aesthetic, high-quality, easy to adjust, and fit my small hands well. Some handles I've tested were way too big or otherwise not ergonomic for small hands, but these feel perfect. Can't wait to test these out on the local terrain soon! (Denver CO)

So far so good

I know BD makes excellent poles and that the carbon ones stand up well, having put many many thru hiking miles on a pair of Distance Carbon z-poles. I bought these ones for the comfy grip and well built strap; plus adjustability for using a trekking pole tent. Of course it's winter here and I'm using only ski poles so I have not tried them yet! Ask me again in a year. One downside I have noticed is that they don't fasten closed at their shortest position. Not a problem when in use, but it could be an issue when putting them in a bag for air travel. And they're longer when closed down than the Z poles.
