The Black Diamond Distance FLZ is a flick-locked, 3 section trekking pole ideal for long hikes, steep approaches, and even for supporting your tarp-shelter.

Combining the compact-ability of a 3-section Z-Pole with the adjustability of FlickLock Pro, the Black Diamond Distance FLZ poles are a mainstay for hard-hitting mountain athletes. Pole-locking is secure, fast and easy, and a three-section foldable design allows for fast-response deployment. The aluminium design is strong and durable and was built for the mountains. 

Sold as a pair.

Features

  • Lightweight EVA foam grip and breathable, moisture-wicking strap
  • Non-slip EVA foam mini-grip extension
  • Three-section foldable shaft with speed cone deployment and FlickLock Pro adjustability
  • Aluminium construction
  • Interchangeable, non-scarring rubber Tech Tips and carbine Tech Tips
  • Stopper basket with shaft catcher to secure folded sections

Z-Pole Rapid Deployment System

  • Concealed inner cord
  • Single push-button release to collapse the pole
  • One-pull, Speed Cone deployment

Speed Cone technology comes from BDS expertise in avalanche probe design—a key component of Z-Poles' stiffness and fast deployment. Simply grab the grip and the first shaft section, and pull them away from each other. The pole will snap into place and lock. Each Speed Cone guides a shaft section into place, and stiffens the joint when the pole is locked. Protective, flexible tube ends cover the pole’s Kevlar® centre cord when folded.

Brilliant

Used on a very hilly trail marathon in South Shropshire. They really helped on the hills. So light didn’t know that I was carrying them. Ordering was easy and they arrived quickly with a personalised note inside. Great service.

good lightweight poles

Really pleased with these. They're very light compared with my old Leki Malakus. I suppose the trade off will be how long they hold up to some serious use but I'm OK with that. The compact size when folded means they stow well in the side pocket of my rucksack and I can reach them easily without taking the pack off. They'll be a lot easier to pack for foreign travel (here's hoping). I used to have to dismantle my old poles to get them to fit in a 100l duffelbag. The weight will be an advantage also. As usual Rock and Run were so good to deal with.

Cape Wrath Trail Proof!

Really good piece of kit. I used then extensively on the Cape Wrath Trail as I needed some robust that would also pack away and could be used at a tent pole. Theses fitted the bill perfectly, you can get lighter and cheap models but you need to ensure their fitness for purpose. These are great and it's easy to see the quality and R&D that has gone into them.

Excellent value and delivery time

This was the first time I bought from Rock + Run and the experience was excellent. The price of the walking poles was significantly better than in other places, and the delivery was done at the early end of the scale. Will definitely use R+R again in Future.
