The higher the better.

Black Diamond designed the Vapor Carbon 1 Ski Pole for gram-counting backcountry skiers, alpinists, and mountaineers. Carbon fiber makes this pole one of the lightest poles on the market, and the Soft Touch upper extends the grip for skinning the steeps. The Vapor Carbon 1 also features two pairs of baskets for powder days and not-so powder days.

  • Carbon fiber one-piece shaft
  • Soft Touch upper and minimalist foam grip
  • Powder and freeride baskets included

Poor Quality - Black Diamond

These Black Diamond Vapor Carbon 1 Ski poles broke the second time I used them. I had aluminum poles for five years and they never broke. I did nothing unusual. They just split in two. See attached picture.
