Alpine Carbon Cork Trekking Poles
When carbon is queen, the Alpine Carbon Cork Trekking Pole is your right (and left) hand man. In addition to the featherlite strength of carbon fiber, Black Diamond added a cork handle to absorb the impact of the tip against the trail, and a rubber extension below it so you can quickly shorten the amount of pole in use for sudden shifts in grade. Dual FlickLock Pro locks secure the pole in just the right length for you, and the poles collapse for easy packing when you want your hands free to scramble.

Nice poles. Very sturdy and lightweight. The locking mechanisms are secure and adjustable. They even came with a small hex key to adjust the tension of the locking mechanisms. There is also a nylon clip to hold the poles together when not in use. I am glad to see that Backcountry changed the product description. It originally stated that the poles came with rubber tips and powder baskets. They do not. So they are four season capable only if you purchase the powder baskets separately. I ordered 2 sets - one for me and one for my wife. Since I am short with small hands, I also ordered the women's poles. They work fine for me.

Hey Charles! I don't particularly love the cork handle on these as cork doesn't hold up against sweat long term. That being said, these are pretty high quality. The Highest quality trekking poles we sell would be the LEKI Micro Vario Carbon AS Trekking Poles.
