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

The ultimate in folding-pole technology, the 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.

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.

I like them

I've only used them in Madeira and the only reason i Haven't given them all 5 stars is that they pinched me a few times whilst opening out. Thats a bit harsh as they do have a nice feel, weigh very little, take up minimal space in my rucksack.
