The Black Diamond Distance Carbon Z is a mega light and durable z walking pole, ideal for fast and light mountain runners and weight conscious adventurers. 

Featuring a 100% carbon construction, the Black Diamond Distance Carbon Z poles weigh a paltry 275g and offer a three-section foldable design that allows for fast-response deployment, so you’ll never waist time fiddling with your walking poles. Non-scarring rubber Tech Tips and a lightweight, EVA foam grip round out this pole as a lightweight detail-driven pillar in pole tech.

Also offering 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.

Sold as a pair.

Stunning uphill and a lifesaver in snow

In mountain marathon training I knocked 15-30 mins off a 1,000m ascent with these beauties - ridiculously light so easy to carry horizontal between steep sections, but with strength and a tiny bit of flex if you accidentally fall against the pole. Two weeks later I found much more snow than expected on a ridge run and even without snow bales the pure strength of these helped me wade through knee deep snow even on a 50 degree slope - totally lifesavers. The only thing I'd say is get a 'quiver' or sock for them on your sack as they are bulky to strap on due to the handles.

Carbon Z poles.

Excellent poles, very strong, comfortable grip. Used walking up and down Helvellyn. Easy to change metal studs for plastic.

Shame I had to send them back!

Rock+Run were very competitive on price and their speed of service was brilliant. After deciding that the poles were too light for trekking, I returned them and the return was processed the same week. This is far better than some companies that purport to be UK based but in fact are European and take ages to process returns! I'll definitely use them again.
