Description

From trail runs and day trips to backpacking and thru-hiking, the Black Diamond Distance trekking pole is versatile enough to go the distance on any trail, no matter the length. All aluminum construction lends durability on the trail and our innovative Z-Pole technology-with a coated inner cord and speed cones-makes transitioning the Distance from packed to deployed a matter of mere seconds. EVA foam grips and breathable straps wick away sweat, and non-slip, mini grip extensions allows for quick choke-ups on steep uphill sections. Interchangeable rubber and carbide Tech Tips can be easily swapped out for different trail surfaces.

  • Durable aluminum construction
  • Three-section Z-Pole folding design with speed cone deployment
  • Lightweight EVA foam grip with breathable, moisture-wicking strap
  • Non-slip foam mini-grip extension for secure choke ups
  • Includes interchangeable, non-marking rubber Tech Tips, carbide Tech Tips and stow bag
  • Stopper basket with shaft catcher secures folding sections
  • NOTE: 3-season Z-Poles do not accept, or have fittings for snow or powder baskets

Z-POLE TECHNOLOGY

Z-POLE TECHNOLOGY

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.

Reviews

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by achilles heel - wrist strap I use poles for trekking, climbing and very rough trail running. It was time for a new set and I needed a pole that would have a shorter overall length when folded/compressed and would redeploy quickly. The Z-pole was the perfect fit for me, and I have been quite happy with the pole's performance. However, I was very disappointed when on my first fall with these poles the wrist strap snapped in half. Not a particularly spectacular fall either, just a stumble at walking speed. I have had pole snapping falls on hard downhill running when planting the pole to quickly change directions. So yes I am hard on poles and regularly push design limits, but this was not an acceptable failure on a walking stumble. I am ordering a replacement strap and will live with the poles for now because they fit the strength, size and speed requirements so well. There you go, great pole - but the wrist strap, I think a little too much weight was saved is the kindest thing I can say. May 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality looked good. We have not had a chance to use the item as of yet but will respond again after I give them the old Colorado,New Mexico and Utah treatment. March 2, 2014
