Black Diamond Issues Voluntary Whippet Recall

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Black Diamond Equipment has issued a voluntary recall on their Whippet and Carbon Whippet self arrest ski poles. The models, produced between May 1, 2013 and January 15, 2014, feature a notched, polished, stainless steel tip that has been found to break under certain circumstances. No injuries have been reported.

According to Black Diamond, Whippets that are currently being sold have an updated tip and are unaffected by the recall. Affected Whippets have serial numbers between 13121 and 14015, which can be found underneath the Flicklock mechanism.
