For Walking, hiking and backpacking: Stability and support matter most. Size up if you're right on a size cusp.
For Running: Uphill propulsion matters most. Size down if you're right on a size cusp.
The Black Diamond Distance Plus FLZ is a versatile 4-season trekking pole which is adaptable, supportive and totally built for the long haul.
Seamlessly switching from deep-winter mountain missions to summertime jaunts in the hills, the Distance Plus FLZ offers an upgraded flex tip that accepts both trekking and powder baskets. Combining SideLock technology, which makes locking and collapsing the poles even easier, with FlickLock adjustability, and the fast deployment and compatibility of Z-pole technology, this pole is both convenient and easy to use when you're on the move.
The dual density EVA foam Grips are comfortable and supportive and feature a webbing thats fully adjustable. The Distance Plus FLZ also offers Speed Cone Deployment for avalanche probing, you simply grab the grip and the first shaft section of the Carbon Z, 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.
