New for 2013! Black Diamond Ultra Mountain FL Z-Poles deliver reliable performance in an ultra-lightweight, collapsible design. Innovative construction enables Ultra Mountain FL Z-Poles to collapse down smaller and weigh far less than traditional 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. Sturdy, easy-to-use FlickLock Pro external locking mechanisms on the uppermost shaft sections provide an 8" length adjustability range for varied demands and height requirements.
Non-slip foam grips serve as secure, ergonomic hand holds and an extended-length design provides a place to choke up on side hill traverses without having to constantly make height adjustments. Padded, adjustable webbing straps help to reduce stress on your 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. Broad diameter baskets allow Ultra Mountain FL Z-Poles to perform well even in snow.
Sold in pairs, Black Diamond Ultra Mountain FL Z-Poles are available in your choice of height adjustable lengths.
