Equally adept on snow, dirt and rock, the new Contour Elliptic is a strong, versatile, high-mileage pole built for comfortable and secure navigation across variable terrain. Thanks to its elliptic shaft, the pole has twice the fore and aft stiffness of round-shafted poles. For increased comfort, the Contour Elliptic features a 15-degree corrective angle, 360-degree padded webbing, and ergonomic ovalized foam grip. The pole's dual FlickLock adjustment is efficient and simple to operate even with gloves on in the dark in a rainstorm with 40-mph wind gusts. On the business end, the pole comes outfittedwith Long Flex Tips and easy-to-swap-out trekking and powder baskets for year-round hiking versatility. The Compact is a shorter, 125 cm version with reduced grip size for smaller hands.

Comments about Black Diamond Black Diamond Contour Elliptic Poles (pair):

Great for travel. My Leki poles wouldn't collapse far enough to fit into my expedition duffel bags, so they had to be duct taped to the straps on the outside. I wound up giving them away before I returned home from India. The cam locks are so much nicer than the twist locks on the Leki poles. Very happy with these.

Comments about Black Diamond Black Diamond Contour Elliptic Poles (pair):

Very strong, stiff poles. FlickLocks are the best. NO slip after locked. Elliptic shape gives little flex front to back. If you've got some climbing to do, these poles will get you there. Great tips, never slipped on all those rocks in BBNP. Loops are very comfortable and easy to adjust or get out of quickly. Grips are just soft enough to be comfortable, not mushy.
