    I would like to say that this is a great pole for hiking up. For skiers aluminum BD poles will work better.
    Great pole, super light weight and easy to fit in the backpack.
    I would like to see it with a powder-basket for winter hiking(split-board)
    I have taken my baskets off with the heatgun and then re-glue the BD baskets. Make shure you buy also the BD ferrules for a good fit.
    It will cost you about 15 busks and a bit of work,
    I am 180cm(5.9) and 130cm pole lenght works good, if your biger then get the ones u can extend.

    Super light and easy to pack. They did well and I would use them again. My one hiccup was on a fall I took with one in my hand, the upper section snapped right at the base of the handle where it slides back up into when collapsed. I ask BD about repair to replace that one section but they said it's not possible. So now I have to buy a whole new pole. For that price I would figure that parts could be replaced but I guess not. That's why not a 5 star. They are a great product and are crazy light, just wish they were repairable

      Theres are great trekking poles. Fold down to almost nothing; very light and sturdy. Glad I purchased them and you can't beat the price! Palms become a bit sweaty on the grip but other than that, no complaints

            These poles are so much lighter than any others out there that there is no comparison. Also they are so easy to collapse and sore in the bag, which hangs without interference from one's backpack or takes up little room within. That they don't adjust is disconcerting at first, but one soon realizes that they are perfectly usable even so. If you are just between sizes, I recommend going down to the smaller size.

                These are super light and sturdy! Combine with a tent that uses trekking poles to pitch and you are money.

                Comments about Black Diamond Ultra Distance Poles (pair):

                As an aging boomer who seeks higher, further and more thrilling hikes, I wanted super lightweight poles, which these are. They are easy enough to fold up and stuff into my pack while perched on a cliff ridge. If the strap extended a bit more it would accommodate gloves better, but it is especially comfortable and supportive.

                Questions about this item:

                Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                MITSURU I  They are very light weight, compact and very quick to deploy.
                brian h  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.
                Shopper  I'm a little under 6'. Should I order 120 cm?
                Robert C  I am 5 foot 9 and the 120cm poles fit me a little big. If your primary use is for for hiking and climbing and secondary use is going downhill than I think they would work out good for you IMO. If you rely heavily on your poles for coming downhills they might be a little bit on the short side. Hope that helps
