FlickLock Pro is the evolution of our trusted FlickLock design. The benefits that made our classic FlickLock design the best pole-locking mechanism on the market remain: it’s secure, fast and easy to use.

Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork - Winner Editor's Choice Award, Outdoor Gear Lab
"The Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork wins our OutdoorGearLab Editors' Choice award. They are light, strong and versatile poles; combined with the comfortable cork handles, climbers and hikers alike will enjoy using them on everything from the roughest of approaches, to simple day hikes. They are on the lighter side for telescoping poles, but if you're an ounce counter, this contender is far from the lightest. What our Editors' Choice award winner does provide is superior durability, comfort, and versatility, for just a few extra ounces more than the other competitors.
While these poles don't have an anti-shock mechanism, nearly all of our testers felt they didn't need them and after extensive testing during off trail travel, we actually appreciated the fact that they didn't have an anti-shock component. This competitor is strong enough for the roughest of trails, yet short enough to be appreciated by splitboarders and snowshoers alike. All and all, if you are willing to throw down the coin on these poles, you won't be disappointed."
