The splitboarder, snowshoer, and backpacker's pole of choice returns, with a new and improved FlickLock™ Pro locking system that is stronger, lower profile and more durable than the original. The Black Diamond Compactor Adjustable Ski Poles break down into 3 sections with a total packed length of 15 inches for easy carrying. When you are ready to skin, the pole comes together using the Rapid Deployment System for smooth, easy assembly. The Compactor is the best choice for those who carry their poles on or in their pack for significant periods of time.

Comments about Black Diamond Compactor Adjustable Ski Poles 2016:
These are the perfect tool for split boarding. They are so small when collapsed that you can fit them in your bag, and you don't have to worry about extra points behind your head. Easy to put together and they still have adjustability. To shave some weight go with the carbon version, but they don't get as large if your tall and in deep snow.
