You go through great lengths to shave weight from your touring setup, so why not pack a strong, light carbon pole like the Pure Carbon Ski Pole? Black Diamond built this two-piece beauty specifically for backcountry touring by shaving weight in the handle and utilizing a wide 100mm powder basket for plenty of purchase in deep snow. A grip extension completes the package so you can choke up and dig this pole into steep slopes when your ascent turns into more of a four-point climb.

Black Diamond Pure Carbon Ski Poles Reviews:


I got these primarily as an inbounds pole with the occasional sidecountry or backcountry tour.These poles are really burly and surprisingly heavy, despite being carbon poles. I wasn't really expecting them to be so heavy. Not to say they are the heaviest, but I've never used a heavier pair. The swing weight feels slow and lethargic to me. I'd trust them as a solid backcountry pole, but maybe I'm just picky, they're just a bit heavy and slow for my liking. Giving 4 stars instead of 3 because despite being heavy, they are extremely well constructed and everything else is great, so most people looking for a dependable, burly pole will like it a lot.

Good adjustment options, good weight and strength. not a flexy little carbon pole. Solid. Grip and wrist loops are stellar. The second rubber grip below is great fro traversing or hitting side angles for good grip without adjusting your pole every time the terrain varies. Baskets are good. If you want something similar without the price tag, look to the Black Diamond Traverse Ski Poles, same pole but aluminum rather than carbon, yet similar in weight.

I've been skiing with the BD Traverse poles for years. I recently borrowed a friend's pair of Pure Carbon poles for a rando. race. Wow, what a big difference losing a little weight and adding a little stiffness makes. It's really tough to justify spending $140 on a pair of poles (probably the most abused piece of ski equipment I use), but next season, I might just have to.

Well designed adjustable ski pole for backcountry skiing.
Newer FlickLock Pro is bomber, I have not had these poles slip in length yet.
As mentioned before, the weight is on the heavy side especially for a carbon pole (4 stars for this reason). On the plus side, I don't worry about these breaking in the backcountry due to being overbuilt in comparison to other carbon poles.

These poles have it all. They are light, strong, and have a large range of adjustment. Black Diamond has introduced a new flicklock this year which is very nice. I had a few issues with the old flicklocks freezing up or slipping but these are bomber.
