Our legendary 2-section Whippet offers proven security and self-arrest capability when steep, no-fall ski descents are on the menu.
For steep, icy bootpacks and added self-arrest security on mega-steep, no-fall terrain, the time-tested Black Diamond Whippet is the ultimate ski mountaineering tool. The Whippet features a stainless steel pick embedded in the pole's grip that can help keep minor slips from turning into slides for life.

FlickLock Pro adjustability and security
FlickLock Pro is the evolution of our trusted FlickLock design. The benefits that made our classic FlickLock design the best pole-locking mechanism on the market remain: it’s secure, fast and easy to use. The Pro’s new low-profile, stainless steel design, however, provides a dramatic improvement in quality, feel and clamping force.
