Distance FL Trekking Pole - 2012
Built with durable lightweight aluminum and featuring both our compactable Z-Pole technology and FlickLock®adjustability, the Black Diamond Distance FL defines on-trail versatility. Ideal for everything from backpacking to short day hikes, the Distance FL's 20 cm of adjustability let you tweak the length for sidehilling or for use with a tarp shelter. Much like our avalanche probes, our speed cone deployment employs a coated inner cord and conical shaft ends for quick and rigid alignment. We also included 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 and FlickLock adjustment
- Lightweight EVA foam grip and breathable, moisture-wicking 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
- NOTE: Z-Poles do not accept, or have fittings for snow or powder baskets
Our Z-Pole Technology was born from our expertise in avalanche probes—by using a three-section shaft, a concealed inner Kevlar cord and innovative speed cones, our collapsible Z-Poles snap into place and lock with a single pull.
When not in use, a single push button releases the pole for compact storage.
