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. With the feather-light Black Diamond Carbon Compacter Ski Pole, you might just make it back 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.
