Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ Pole
Ideal for ounce-counting hikers and backpackers, versatile Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ poles offer streamlined, adjustable performance. Innovative construction enables the poles to "fold" down smaller and weigh far less than traditional carbon trekking poles.
The Z-Pole Rapid Deployment System consists of a concealed inner cord and a single push-button release. Borrowed from Black Diamond's tested avalanche probes, a center cord provides surprising strength and stability. Similar to tent poles, the sections snap securely into place, resulting in weight savings and increased collapsibility that enables them to take up far less packed space than traditional poles. Sturdy, easy-to-use FlickLock Pro external locking mechanisms on the uppermost shaft sections provide limited length adjustability range for varied demands and height requirements.
Non-slip foam grips maintain the minimalist profile while serving as secure hand holds. A short extension to the grip provides a place to choke up on side hill traverses and compact straps help to relieve stress on the wrists.
Two sets of tips are included. Carbide tips deliver solid traction for trails or soft ground. Non-marking rubber tips can be used to prevent trail damage and provide grip and durability. Narrow trekking pole baskets are included, but optional broader-diameter Z-Pole Snow Baskets (sold separately) are available to equip the poles for use in winter or alpine conditions. An included storage bag protects your poles and includes an integrated pocket to house whichever set of tips you aren't using.
Sold in pairs, Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ trekking poles are available in your choice of height adjustable lengths.
