Utilizing high-performance carbon fiber shafts, Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork trekking poles are lightweight, easy-to-adjust, and equipped with tactile cork grips.

Far easier to adjust than the internal locking mechanisms used by many telescoping poles, the sturdy FlickLock Pro external locks found on the upper shaft sections of these poles are ideal for all conditions and seasons. Using them couldn't be much simpler. Even if you're wearing gloves, it's a cinch to open the lock with a flip of your finger, slide the pole section to the required length and tap the lock back into place.

Cork grips serve as contoured, comfortable handholds and additional lengths of foam padding extend far down the upper pole sections allowing you to adjust where you grasp the poles without having to shorten or extend the poles each time you encounter a steep slope or side hill traverse. Padded adjustable webbing straps help to reduce stress on your wrists.

Press-fit Tech Tips have integrated low-profile trekking baskets that provide backcountry traction. These tips allow you to choose between a carbide tip that offers ideal bite on ice and other hard surfaces and non-scarring rubber tips that won't damage trails or rock. You can also equip the poles for winter use by utilizing broader-diameter Powder Baskets (sold separately).

Sold in pairs, Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork trekking poles offer a usable adjustment range of 24"-51".

  • 100% carbon construction
  • Adjustable length (24"-51”)
  • Each pair weighs 17.1 oz
  • Cork grip with soft rubber grip top
  • Foam grip extension
  • High surface-area wrist strap
  • FlickLock Pro technology

black diamond alpine carbon cork trekking poles


lightweight comfortable and conforming cork





Light and comfortable


The grips are comfortable, they are easy to adjust and don't slip. They are well made. Im glad I bought them


Would be nice if they included the rubber tips too.

Andrew P.


Totally worth it


These are lightweight, but very stout and should be able to hold up to years of abuse. Hardware is simple and heavy-duty which should avoid issues when out in the middle of nowhere. I wasn’t convinced that I would like to use poles, but after 4 - 5 hikes I can’t believe that I waited so long to get a pair! Highest recommendation!


Expensive. Clamps require an allen key (included) for adjustment. Not a big deal, but another thing to keep track of.

Bunny T.


Classic strong poles


No gimmicks. Strong reasonably light pole. Great cork grips.





Premium Feel and Performance


Fairly light. Rigid but with the cork handles not harsh at all. They feel smoother in stride. Vibration is noticeable dampened compared to an aluminum pole. These are solid.


Don't pack down as small as I'd like I guess but no big deal.

Ben L.


Great but pricey


Great trekking poles. Sturdy and easy to use.


A bit pricey for trekking poles.

Kenan H.


Comfortable and they stay at the right height


I have a ton of miles on these poles and I use them to set up my pyramid tent. The locking mechanisms keep them the right height for long days, and I've had no trouble getting them to grip wet rocks. The cork grips are awesome and I went from using straps to pretty much not using them at all because these poles are so comfortable. As an added bonus, you never have to adjust the height when ascending or descending because of the additional padding below the grips.


This is kind of nitpicky, but I personally hate having a left and a right pole. Poles that I've used in the past didn't have this and it kind of drives me crazy.

Excellent Poles


1. Very sturdy poles 2. The latches are secure and solid 3. Premium wrist straps


1. Wish they included some other tips/accessories/bag 2. Doesnt collapse as far down as as much 3. Pole finish seems to get tiny scratches easily 4. The latches are secured with a tiny hex key. Would be hard to fix this on the trail without carrying an extra tool

Scott R.


Light Weight and Sturdy


These light weight poles seem to be plenty sturdy so far after one short trip into the Eastern Sierras. Locking mechanisms hold tight with no slippage. I prefer this color over black.


Although the cork grips are comfortable, I wish they were a little larger in diameter.

Jeremy A.


Improvement over the old models


The plastic locks have been replaced with metal ones. The plastic ones were known to break, this is a big improvement. I also like the new color scheme.


Don't retract all the way in like others ever mentioned. Still compact, but not as much as they could be.

Kirk W.


Very nice poles


Very light, comfortable, and durable


clips won't lock when fully collapsed

Richard G.


Lightweight and durable.


No slipping of extensions. Perfect for my 6 foot 1 inch height
