Black Diamond Traverse Pro ski poles are primed for any day in the backcountry. From early-season novelty turns to mid-winter storms and spring objectives. The Traverse Pro poles feature a durable all-aluminum construction with a redesigned FlickLock Pro, which is now lighter, stronger and easier to use, with a more durable, forged aluminum construction, allowing for quick and secure length changes. The innovative SwitchRelease technology in the wrist strap and a lockable release adds a measure of safety in the event a pole gets caught in bushes or trees. The poles also feature a ring for quick choke-ups in steep or sidehill terrain.
