The adjustable-length Compactor, featuring Z-Pole technology, folds up small enough to fit in a touring pack and is ideal for splitboarding.

Combining innovative folding Z-Pole technology with winter functionality, the Black Diamond Compactor is a four-season aluminum pole that folds into an ultra-compact package for easy storage. FlickLock Pro offers up to 20 cm of adjustability and dramatically improved clamping force in a low-profile design, while the Compactor's speed cone deployment allows it to deploy in a matter of seconds. Its small size when folded makes it ideal for splitboarding, snowshoeing and airline travel to distant winter destinations.
