    Your backcountry BFF.

    Not so different than the fact that you legitimately can't start your morning without a hot cup of coffee, embarking on a powder morning or early season run without your Black Diamond Traverse Pro Ski Poles is a serious offense—one that's pre-coffee-monster-worthy. Designed to weather just about any kind of adventure you have in mind, the Traverse features a lightweight yet durable aluminum construction, while the newly redesigned grip offers an ergonomic, comfortable feel. Additionally, the Traverse boasts an easy-to-use FlickLock Pro that provides on-the-go adjustability. The SwitchRelease wrist strap enables the pole to safely disengage should it get caught in shrubbery, and the touring ring comes fully equipped with Soft Touch coating to assure quick choke-ups in steep terrain.

    Great poles for touring and in bounds

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I gave these poles to my boyfriend so he'd stop stealing mine (of a similar design), and so far he has been loving them. The BD FlickLock Pro is one of the best either of us have encountered - not soft enough to allow your poles to slip when leaning on them, but still easy enough to open when trying. We were a bit confused about the quick release arm strap system (SwitchRelease) at first, but it's already proven useful while skiing with those who don't have a personal bubble... Not to mention the fabric/design of the straps makes them extremely easy to slip on and adjust.

    I'm a fan

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Poles are poles, right?
    I think that most tough questions are best answered anecdotally, and the 'pole query' is no different.
    In order to fully appreciate BD's Traverse, spend a couple of weeks touring with short poles that don't have powder baskets. Make sure that at least one of your tours involves some euro-style switch-backing, and lots of kick turns.
    Then, find yourself a pair of the Traverses, and repeat the same process.'
    (this experiment typically favors the Traverse, but your mileage may vary)

    Great everyday poles

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Used these alpine skiing in powder and loved them. Bought them to use in the backcountry as well, however haven't had the chance yet. Super light, easy to adjust and straps are big enough to get my extra warm black diamond guide gloves through.

    Awesome first Day

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I used these for the first time today and can already tell I'm going to love them! I don't get many AT days in and spend most of my powder skiing around resorts so these will suit me just fine. They have a great adjustable length and are not nearly as heavy as some adjustable poles! They have great adjustable straps and nice big baskets as well, definitely nothing to complain about so far!
