Black Diamond's lightest Z-Pole ideal for fast and light endeavours and endurance running events, the Distance Carbon is the ultimate in folding-pole technology.
Black Diamond’s Distance Carbon Z features 100% carbon construction, weighs a paltry 275g and features 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.
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.
