“The Black Diamond compactor poles benefit from an innovative design that enables them to be packed away in your backpack easily when not in use – the clue is in the name! For snowboarding, these are pretty much the industry standard now for splitboarders, as reducing bulk in the pack when riding down is of great benefit. The mechanism is easily clicked into place and can be operated with gloves on. When extended, the poles are solid with no tendency to collapse, as can be found with some. They also have other uses: handy as a spare pole to be carried on a long ski tour within a group perhaps, and ideal as an occasional, packable trekking pole.”
