The seasons may change, but the Black Diamond Expedition 1 Ski Poles will remain. Designed for four-season use, the Expedition 1 is at home in bounds, in the backcountry, and on the trail during your summer backpacking trips. The fixed-length aluminum shaft is fitted with an extended foam grip, giving you a place to choke up on the pole when you're traversing mid-slope or pushing up a steep climb. The adjustable strap is comfortable with or without gloves, and the included baskets offer plenty of float for powder days but they will deal just fine with a little dirt and rock, too.
