A versatile, extremely stable pole with their game-changing Z-Pole technology, the Black Diamond Distance meets the everyday demands of day hikers, backpackers and trail runners. Much like their avalanche probes, their speed cone deployment employs a coated inner Kevlar cord and conical shaft ends for quick and strong alignment. You 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. They also have a lightweight EVA grip with mini extension for quick choke-ups on steep inclines and interchangeable tips for variable trail surfaces.
  • Aluminum shafts
  • 3-section folding design with speed cone deployment
  • Z-Pole technology allows the poles to have an extremely short pack length and makes them very compact.
  • Lightweight EVA foam grip and breathable, moisture-wicking wrist strap
  • Non-slip foam mini grip extension for secure choke ups
  • Includes interchangeable, non-marking Z-pole Rubber Tips, Z-pole Carbide Tips and stow bag
  • Stopper basket with shaft catcher secures folded sections
  • Color: Silver and Red
  • Import.
  • NOTE: 3-season Z-Poles do not accept, or have fittings for snow or powder baskets.

Comments about Black Diamond Distance Z-Pole Trekking Poles:

Despite the cons shown above, I still give these poles top rating because of their advantages ..... I used these to help me walk after back and hip surgery. Now I use them for wilderness hikes and long urban hikes. They are the quickest poles to deploy and fold. Folding small and being lightweight makes it easy to carry them, ready for use.

      Measure with your arm at a 90 degree like you were walking with the poles. Measure from where your hand is to the ground. If you are measuring in centimeters order the appropriate length. If measuring in inches multiply the inch measurement by 2.54.
