Sleek, light and stiff, the new Contour Elliptic Carbon is the Black Diamond high-end, year-round trekking and snowshoe pole, designed with an elliptic shaft (double the fore/aft stiffness of a traditional round pole) plus the added boost of carbon fiber in the upper section. The 360-degree padded Nubuck straps and dual-density grip tops provide all-day comfort, variable hand positioning and steep descent control. For all-season versatility, the poles' dual FlickLocks offer a secure, jackrabbit-fast adjustment with zero slippage, and can be easilyoperated even with gloves on. The Contour Elliptic Carbons come with Long Flex Tips and both low-profile trekking and powder baskets.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

Lightweight and strong, great for hiking & snowshoeing. I live in Nevada where the ground is very uneven & rocky. I find these poles great to keep me steady while hiking through the rocks.

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

This product is really good. I just used it on a seriously steep and slick climb today and they defo saved my butt a few times on slides. Be sure to use the snow baskets on snow terrain for extra stability...definently did not put those on before I went out. But they are super lightweight and compactable. My new bff's

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

Locking mechanisms are rock solid unlike Leki poles. The Black Diamond carbon eliptical poles are both durable and extremly light weight. I would recommend this product only if someone is open to after market modification of lower grip with a grip similar to a tennis racket grip wrap. The lower grips are way too abrasive and will both rip up your hands (gloves) in use and damage poles if not stored properly. Fortunately, other online reviews helped me prevent this before any use.
