Updated for 2013! Ideal for ounce-counting hikers and backpackers, versatile Black Diamond Women’s Distance FL Z-Poles offer streamlined, adjustable performance. Innovative construction enables Women’s Distance 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 groups 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 hard surfaces or ice. Non-marking rubber tips can be used to prevent trail damage and provide grip and durability. 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 Women's Distance FL Z-poles are available in your choice of height-adjustable lengths.
