Traversing steep and technical terrain has its risks of falls, trips and slips. A single trekking pole can reduce this risk significantly. For many years now the Team at PAST has used a depended on the BD Whippet Ski Pole.  With the pick axe attachment providing a fall arrest and a climbing capability this pole is the most versatile on the market.

Whether it is steep New Zealand West Coast climb or a steep ski or splitboard terrain that requires extra traction, the Whippet is now improved with a removable steel pick. Using our innovative ClickLock Dial, you can attach the pick to add a margin of safety for icy bootpacks and no-fall descents, and then remove it for shredding low-angle powder in the backcountry. With its three-section packability, the Whippet is stowable, making it ideal for splitboarding and back packing excursions, while its redesigned FlickLock Pro adjustability is now lighter, stronger and easier to use, with a more durable, forged aluminium construction.

Can be used to support single pole shelters/pyramid tents also

Great quality ski pole and axe attachment

Great service from PAST Outdoors - fast postage and quality product, well packed.

As a ski pole this is light and great quality, but haven't had to use the Whippet attachment for self arrest yet.
