Combining the compactibility of a 3-section Z-Pole with the adjustability of FlickLock Pro, the Black Diamond Distance FL Z is an excellent walking pole choice for long hikes, steep approaches, stream crossings and even for supporting your tarp-shelter.
Taking the crossover expertise of the Distance Z and adding FlickLock Pro adjustability, the Distance FLZ is a mainstay for hard-hitting mountain athletes. Pole-locking is secure, fast and easy, and a three-section foldable design allows for fast-response deployment.

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