Shave weight with this super-packable touring pole.
When you're ten hours into an all-day splitboard mission, it's getting dark fast, and you still have three miles to get back to the car, every ounce matters. Though, thanks to the feather-light Black Diamond Carbon Compacter Ski Pole, you might just make it back to the car without your arms falling off. Engineered exclusively for packable touring, the three-piece carbon fiber shaft features Black Diamond's own Z-Pole technology with Speed Cone Deployment. This system enables the pole to quickly deploy to full length simply by holding the handle, releasing the basket pole capture, and allowing the pole to snap into shape. This system allows for an extremely compact and secure packing configuration, making it perfect for splitboarding, air travel, and expeditions.

- Q & A
Light and Compact
The greatest feature these poles have is being compact, obviously, and also lightweight. Perfect for stuffing into the main compartment of my pack instead of having a couple death spikes sticking out the top on my run down. The only design issue I came across was the release button that releases the tension on the pole to break it apart. It's quite small and pretty difficult to press and not possible with thicker gloves. If you have cold hands and want a pole that is easier to break down the non carbon compactor might be more desirable as it uses a lever instead of a button.
I believe this is a set of (2) poles? That's how BD advertises them on their site but the image and description here suggest they are sold individually?
Also, since they are sold in different sizes I assume they are not adjustable?
Hi Jared, These poles are going to come as a set. And you're right, they are sold in fixed lengths (non adjustable). If you have any other questions, reach out to me directly and I'll get you taken care of. - Matthew Pizza - Customer Account Manager
