Black Diamond Compactor Ski Poles 2017

The Black Diamond Compactor Ski Poles fold up small and piece themselves back together with remarkable speed thanks to their Z-Pole technology. Plus, Flicklock Pro technology lets you adjust their length without taking off your mittens - a feature not to be discounted on when you think about the alternative while dawn-patrolling on a blustery ridgetop. Flicklock is even fast enough to let you keep up with adjusting tuning your pole length across undulating terrain on
your ascents too.

Ski poles are your friends. They help you maintain proper form and balance, as well as help you get across the flat spots. The only people that shouldn't use poles are kids that cannot parallel yet, true beginners, snowboarders, and park skiers that desperately need to look like snowboarders. So if you aren't one of these categories, you should be using poles.
Sizing poles is easy. Just use the ski pole Sizing chart to give you a good estimate of what length of poles you should be using.
Ideally, your arm should be parallel to the ground when you grasp the pole (with the tip up) below the basket.

There are cases when you can go longer or shorter than what the chart recommends:

  • If you are a bump skier, you should size down 2-8 inches.
  • If you want an aggressive stance for steeps and higher speed skiing, size down 2 inches.
  • If you are doing a lot of park skiing, size down 2-6 inches
  • If you Telemark, size down 2-6 inches
  • If you are powder skiing a lot, size up 2 inches.
  • If you are ski jousting, size up 4-12 inches
