Black Diamond's ultimately versatile all-around 3-section fully adjustable aluminum hiking, trekking, and ski poles.   These poles will do just about everything that you need poles for.  Hiking, backpacking, climbing approaches, snowshoeing, alpine skiing, backcountry skiing, split snowboarding, travel, etc.  Aluminum poles can be more difficult to accidentally snap in half like carbon poles can sometimes do in extreme stressed situations.  This is a significant advantage and preference for some users.  3-section poles give you a much larger range of length adjustment than 2-section poles, and allow the poles to become much more compact for carrying on your pack or in your luggage when needed.  Black Diamond still uses their most tried and true FlickLock® adjusting mechanisms on this model.  The grips are made of a 4-season foam that extends further downward along the top of the upper pole section to allow you to more comfortably and securely grip the pole lower down and "choke up" on the poles for short sections when desirable. The ergonomic shape of the top of the grips allow the poles to comfortably be "palmed" when hiking down steep terrain, and has a pronounced hooking tip for grabbing heel lifts and boot buckles.  The new vari-width wrist straps are simple and easily adjustable to your size hands and choice of handwear for maximum support and hand positioning to minimize fatigue.  100mm powder baskets are included, and several other sizes and styles of easily interchangeable baskets for hiking and skiing are available to optimize the function and performance of these poles in every type of trail and snow condition.
