The Black Diamond Distance FL Z Combines an ultralight carbon construction with Z-Pole technology and FlickLock Pro security. The Distance Carbon FL is a versatile, highly adjustable walking pole for weight-conscious mountaineers, trekkers and mountain walkers.
When the grams matter on long distance mountain excursions, the lightweight, highly adaptable Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ delivers the strong, lightweight usability associated with 100% carbon construction, as well as FlickLock Pro adjustability and a three-section compact foldable shaft. Combined with interchangeable, non-scarring Tech Tips and a lightweight EVA foam grip, your hold and traction will be assured.
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.
