The Black Diamond Expedition Ski Pole is the definition of a versatile, sturdy backcountry ski pole.  The three-piece design is built to give you the stability and durability you need for the descent while still offering a high level of adjustability and packability.  All-aluminum shafts are locked together with two FlickLock Pro clamps for reliable adjustment and quick extension of the pole's 57cm (22in) collapsed length.  A fluted interior grip design and lightweight strap help keep weight at a minimum.

Black Diamond Expedition Ski Poles Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

What more can I say, after years of not using poles for hiking I joined the ranks and grabbed a pair of adjustable poles, only to have them continue to slip when applying pressure. I went back to my old standby standard ski poles. Then came along a gift of BD Expedition poles. I've used them on tons of hikes in the PNW and Wasatch mountains and won't leave home on a hike without them.
They're a great tool to help support heavy loads when trekking to base camp. I've also used just a solo along with my trusty BD ice axe when conditions go from steep to low angle. The locks are very easy to use and clamp tightly, while the straps are simple and fast to adjust even on the move.
Only problem I've had is losing baskets, but I tend to find another someone else has lost and it all works out. A great solution for this is an old school method of heating up a little linseed oil and placing on the baskets before sliding them in place.

Original: I have yet to use these poles, but I can already tell my baskets are going to be gone after my first run. The pole and basket have grooves, which makes it look like they are to be screwed on, however one good tug and the basket comes off easier than it was to put it on. Disappointed
Update: Finally tweaking with the pole, I did the same as MrPoopypants, just jammed it on the collapse pole to go past the threads and I have not had a problem since. So far I have 20 days on them and they have held up. Hope this update helps!

Seems like the other reviewers are not putting their snow baskets on properly. They are quite difficult to put on and off, and I have used mine for months and have yet to loose any.
What else can I say, its a ski pole. The grips are good, the leashes are adjustable and the flip locks hold tight. And if they don't from the factory you can adjust those too. Great ski pole for backcountry touring, backpacking, mountaineering and skiing.

Negative Reviews:

The very first time I used these poles, both the powder baskets were gone within a couple of hours. I have no idea when or how they fell off, but they're gone and it's pretty disappointing.

Don't know why everybody uses these for split board poles, check out the Black diamond Compactor poles!?
