    Whippet Ski Pole

    Designed to allow you to easily self-arrest when you're travelling in slick terrain or descending in a no-fall zone, Black Diamond's Whippet Ski Pole has been revamped with a removable steel pick, enabling you to use it as a regular ski pole when you're out in more mellow terrain. The lightweight shaft collapses into three pieces, making it a great choice for splitboarders who stow their poles on the descents, and is fully adjustable to provide versatility in a variety of conditions.

    • Pole with steel pick for travelling in steep backcountry terrain
    • Steel pick is removable for pole use on less technical days
    • 3-piece shaft is packable for splitboard descents
    • Shaft is adjustable for use in any conditions

    Whip It Good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love this new design with the removable pick. I thought this might be a little flimsy with the removable pick, but I thought wrong. This setup is super solid, and is a simple design. Big improvement from previous models, and is a little lighter.

    Removable ax

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Really love the removeable axe. And the sheath it has to protect the person from the axe is much better on this years model. The bottom part of the pole did rip out 2/2 tours and the 2nd tour I lost it. Hopefully, this is just a manufacture defect

    Incredible tour poles!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Sturdy and light! I love the removable head - feels secure when locked on, but comes off easily and is easy to store in pack. I haven't had a chance to self-arrest yet, but as a touring pole, it's been great. I would love to see a 3-piece carbon version though for us splitboarders!!

    Love...

    ...the evolution of Black Diamonds Whippet Pole. With the 2018 iteration, BD has introduced a removable pick via a dialed ratchet system which makes this pole much more versatile in lower angle terrain...and lessens the probability of harpooning oneself, which is always a good thing !

    Is this sold as a pair?

    These poles are sold as singles. Thanks Keenan

    How to Measure:
    For walking, hiking and backpacking:
    Stability and support matter most. Size up if you're right on a size cusp.
    For Running:
    Uphill propulsion matters most. Size down if you're right on a size cusp.
