Weekday dawn patrols, all-day couloir missions and deep days lapping the trees - the Black Diamond Traverse ski pole is our classic, all-aluminum touring pole for any day of backcountry skiing.

Black Diamond Whippet Pole
Built for steep ski or splitboard terrain that requires extra traction, the Whippet is now improved with a removable steel pick. Using our innovative ClickLock Dial, you can attach the pick to add a margin of safety for icy bootpacks and no-fall descents, and then remove it for shredding low-angle powder in the backcountry. With its three-section packability, the Whippet is stowable, making it ideal for splitboarding excursions, while its redesigned FlickLock Pro adjustability is now lighter, stronger and easier to use, with a more durable, forged aluminum construction.
