No where does it say that poles you are selling are the carbon fiber and not the aluminum on your page. Can you please verify that they are please?
DANIEL W Yes, these are carbon fiber poles. VERY light, but still sturdy and easy to use.

EDWARD S The poles I purchased from this page were carbon fiber.
MITSURU I They are carbon fiber just like the ones described in the Black Diamond Equipment website. Very light weight and sturdy.
MARK C This is a carbon fiber packable folding-pole. It is a 3-section Z-Pole design and features a coated inner cord, a single push-button release, a speed cone deployment, which aligns like an avalanche probe for increased rigidity, and a lightweight EVA grip.
JANE L I purchased the poles from Sunny Sports and they are definitely carbon. Here is an excerpt from the Black Diamond website product description: "... the Black Diamond Ultra Distance is a superlight, 3-season carbon-fiber pole that uses our ultra-packable folding-pole technology."
GARY J The poles I received were carbon fiber and I have been very satisfied with their performance after approx 500 miles of hiking on strenuous trails in NC including the AT.
CHRIS M These poles are the best I have ever used. Super light weight and easy to collapse. If they are the color black and blue they are carbon fiber. If they are green and grey they are aluminum. Looks like the poles above are in fact carbon fiber. Hope this helps.
ALAN C The Ultra Distance, fixed length poles are carbon pole, not aluminum. I have used them quite happily for eight months now. They are great.
JAY G Brian,

JOHN T They are carbon fiber, and they are really nice poles.
