Black Diamond Distance FLZ

Length: 125-140cm

The Black Diamond Distance FLZ is a flick-locked, 3 section trekking pole ideal for long hikes, steep approaches, and even for supporting your tarp-shelter.

Refined and rebuilt - the Black Diamond trekking pole series have evolved! Combining the amazing packability of a 3-section Z-Pole with the adjustability of FlickLock Pro, the Black Diamond Distance FLZ poles are 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. The lightweight aluminium design is strong and durable and was built for the mountains.

Size down if you're right on the size cusp.


The video below details all the improvements made by Black Diamond to the Distance series of poles.


  • Lightweight EVA foam grip and breathable, moisture-wicking strap
  • Non-slip EVA foam mini-grip extension
  • Three-section foldable shaft with speed cone deployment and FlickLock Pro adjustability
  • Smoother push button unlocking system
  • Aluminium construction, improved joint stiffness
  • Interchangeable, non-scarring rubber Tech Tips and carbine Tech Tips

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 Black Diamonds 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.

So light and sturdy!

So glad I bought these poles. They’re so light and fold down and open so quickly. Me and my partner used one each, as we’ve never used poles before. Even with one they were really useful when we found ourselves taking a wrong turn down a ravine, with some slippy rocks covered in autumn leaves. Also gave us the ability to go for longer and climb steeper hills, as knees didn’t get as tired. Would definitely recommend these poles.They’re pricey but they’re worth it. I read alot of reviews that said the same!
