Black Diamond Carbon Whippet Pole -

The Black Diamond Carbon Whippet Ski Pole is the perfect solution for fans of the time-tested Whippet who prefer their ski pole to pack down a little smaller. The Carbon Whippet is divided into three sections that quickly collapse down with easy thumb flips of two FlickLock Pro clamps. While not quite as short as the Compactor, the carbon fiber construction reduces weight while adding stiffness for those that like to push the limits of their poles. 


  • Compacts down to 70 cm (21.5 in)

Traction and Grip:

  • Lightweight touring grip with an integrated extension for quick choke-ups when traversing steep terrain
  • Stainless steel pick with canard wing is built into the dual-density grip for quick self-arrest if needed


  • An 18 mm (0.71 in.) aluminum upper section, 16 mm (0.63 in.) carbon fiber mid section, and 14 mm (0.55 in.) carbon fiber lower section provide an excellent balance of stiffness and weight


  • Lengthened strap adjustment tab allows for easy manipulation with gloves on
  • Wrist strap hangs open for easy access


  • Pole sections secured by two low-profile, durable stainless steel FlickLock Pro clamps with increased clamping leverage thanks to dual-axle design
  • Three-section collapsible pole design for easy packability
  • Sold as a single pole
  • Rugged carbon fiber lowers increase pole stiffness for more efficient power transfer
  • Sold individually
  • 100 mm (4 in) Powder Baske
  • 40 cm range of adjustability for tailoring height to varying terrain
  • Includes 4-inch (10 cm) powder baskets

Black Diamond Carbon Whippet Pole Reviews:


I'll be honest I don't own this model; I have the blue style from last year, but I am PSYCHED that BD came out with a 3-piece version. This will make the collapsed pole much more similar to a proper trekking axe, and strengthen the shaft when using it in this mode. The shorter length will actually be USEFUL on steep snow (which is what you're getting it for, right??). I'm really pumped about this new model although bummed because now I'm gonna have to shell out for a new whippet.
Again, don't own this one but the standard aluminum two-piece model is great. This seems like a well-placed upgrade.

I have been waiting for a 3-piece Whippet for a little while now. While I haven't actually used this on-snow yet, it seems like a great upgrade. I have the BD Expedition from a couple years ago and this model has the updated FlickLock (much easier than the first version). Super light, bomber construction, and compresses to a smaller size more suitable for splitboarding.
