Durable, packable and highly versatile, the Black Diamond Alpine FLZ Pole easily goes from summer hikes to winter ski tours by swapping the baskets and adjusting the secure, easy-to-use FlickLock® system for a perfect fit and length.
No stranger to crossover, the Black Diamond Alpine FLZ is just as at home on a summer jaunt far from the trailhead as on a winter tour deep in the backcountry. 60 mm Trekking Baskets and Compactor Powder Baskets are easily swapped to provide four-season usability, and aluminium construction combined with a three-section foldable design keep your load light and fast.

Z-Pole Deployment System
- Concealed inner cord
- Single push-button release to collapse the pole
- One-pull, Speed Cone deployment
Speed Cone technology comes from our 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.
