Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork Trekking Poles Description
Trekking Poles - Black Diamond Alpine Cork Poles (Pair)
An ultra-compact trekking pole, the triple-sectioned Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork is also very, very light, thanks to its 100% carbon fibre shafts. The natural cork grip provides great grip which doesn't get sweaty and greasy. It also absorbs shock and vibration better than most man-made alternatives. There is also a foam contoured grip that extends down the shaft which helps when climbing very steep inclines. The Carbon fibre used for the shafts provides an excellent dampening effect against shock, yet this doesn't compromise the rigidity of the pole unlike many anti-shock systems.
Double FlickLocks provide fast and easy adjustments, and a Long Flex Tip, with either the low-profile, non-snagging trekking or powder baskets, allows year-round snowshoe and hiking versatility.
