  • VersatilityAdjustable and suitable for backcountry skiing.

The Black Diamond Traverse Ski Poles offer comfort and versatility to backcountry skiers who are looking for a pair of reliable ski touring poles. These poles feature a dual density foam grip for comfort and reduced hand fatigue. The wrist straps are also adjustable with a ladder lock buckle for a secure fit. And the shaft of the poles feature FlickLock® Adjustability to allow the poles to collapse quickly when not in use and extend quickly when ready to ski. The Traverse Poles also come with powder baskets but can accomodate 3/4 baskets.

Key Features:

  • Soft Rubber Grip with Choke Up – This soft touring grip makes skiing with poles a breeze while the choke up grip makes for an easy traverse when skinning up the mountain.
  • FlickLock® Adjustability – The FlickLock® allows the user to collapse or extend the poles with the flick of a button.
  • Adjustable Wrist Straps – These ergonomic straps can be adjusted to use with or without gloves, without having to sacrifice comfort.

Bought traverse ski poles for backcountry skiing

Originally posted at on Mar 14, 2024
Took them out in the backcountry last weekend. They work great. The basket is a good size for powder and they seem pretty sturdy. I'm 5.9 and use the 145 cm which is perfect.

The original, the bes

Originally posted at on Mar 10, 2024
After beating on my original pair for about ten years, I finally broke one of them while trying to take out a bend I caused in a hard tumble pulling a sled in the backcountry. These are super rugged, easy to use with mittens/gloves on, and guaranteed to hold up in the backcountry.

Ryan is very knowledgeable and used my profile and follow up conversations to match equipment to fit my specific needs. His responsiveness was on point and he gave me plenty of options and data (not just opinions) to help make my decision. Will definitely reach out when it comes to buying more equipment for my crew! Thanks Ryan!!!

Grant was the best!
5 /5
I’m used to settling for less than optimal feedback from customer service reps and could tell pretty quickly that Grant was More than that. He definitely knew his stuff and took me on a journey of different boards until I felt really comfortable about my purchase. I bought a board based on his recommendation and excited to ride it!

Very responsive and personable. Felt choices were options fit to personal use and not forced in any direction. Will use Curated again for other family members and recommend specifically due to experience with Taylor and competitive pricing offered.

Leo moved me from unsure and indecisive to fully outfitted with a shop nearby to assist, and he did it at a great price. There's no doubt he's an expert, which helped me get passed the endless options in buying skis, and he did it without any pressure to make a final purchase. I did make the purchase and I'll be back in the future.

5 /5
Bryant was great in helping me pick out skis and bindings. Before talking with Bryant I was overwhelmed with how many options there could be with skis and the factors that go into it. He really helped provide a lot of clarity in the options and what would work best for what I was looking for.
