Brand: Black Diamond
Located in: Add-on Gear, Trekking Poles
With almost two times the fore and aft stiffness of any pole on the market, the Spire Elliptic gives unrelenting support on technical climbs and descents. Its elliptic shaft is non-rotating, offering immediate spring pin engagement with the Auto Lock Binary system, and the low-finger-pressure, high-locking-force Elliptic FlickLock allows simple mid-stride adjustments. The Spire Elliptic is built with a 15º corrective angle that keeps the wrist in a neutral position, a new streamlined dual-density top grip for control, a non-slip foam grip with lower extension for choking up on steeper terrain and 360° padded webbing. The Spire Elliptic is equipped with a Short Flex Tip and a non-snagging, low-profiletrekking basket. The Elliptic Compact is a shorter, 125 centimeter version with a reduced grip size for smaller hands.

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

Comments about Black Diamond Black Diamond Spire Elliptic Compact Poles (pair):

Small print on the package indicates these are 3-season poles. The flick-lock works great but the "pinch-lock" on the lower section will not compress when below freezing which defeats the reason I bought these poles...ease of adjustment
