Ideal for ounce-counting hikers and backpackers, Black Diamond Distance FL trekking poles offer streamlined performance and versatility. Innovative Z-Pole construction enables Distance FL poles to collapse down small and weigh far less than standard aluminum trekking poles.
The Black Diamond Z-Pole Rapid Deployment System consists of a concealed inner cord, a single push-button release and a one-pull deployment. Borrowed from Black Diamond's tested avalanche probes, a Kevlar 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. An easy-to-use FlickLock external locking mechanism on the uppermost shaft section does provide an 8" 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 sidehill traverses and compact straps help to relieve stress on the wrists.
Two set of tips are included. Carbide tips deliver solid traction for hard surfaces or ice. Non-marking rubber tips can be used to prevent trail damage and provide grip and durability. An included storage bags protects your poles and includes an integrated pocket to house whichever set of tips you aren't using.
Sold in pairs, Black Diamond Distance FL poles are available in your choice of height adjustable lengths.
