Distance Trekking Pole - 2012
A versatile, extremely stable pole with our game-changing Z-Pole technology, the Black Diamond Distance meets the everyday demands of day hikers, backpackers, thru hikers and trail runners. The sturdy 3-piece aluminum shaft aligns in a flash thanks to our speed cone deployment, which secures like an avalanche probe for increased rigidity. The Distance features a lightweight EVA grip with a mini-extension for choking up on steep terrain, and interchangeable rubber and carbide tips.
- Aluminum shafts
- 3-section Z-Pole folding design with speed cone deployment
- Lightweight EVA foam grip and breathable, moisture-wicking strap
- Non-slip foam mini grip extension for secure choke ups

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.
