This Season Black Diamond launches the new Carbon Probe Pole. Stiff, light and fully adjustable, the pole performs a double duty by combining a ski pole with a fully functional avalanche probe.
In the event of an avalanche, the two lower sections screw together to form a 182 cm probe (using 100-125 cm poles), and the all-new, super-secure FlickLock Pro adjustment system provides unparalleled clamping force when the pole is assembled.
