Designed for fast packers, trail runners and anyone else looking for lightweight reliability on the trail, the Black Diamond Ultra Distance is a superlight, 3-season carbon-fiber pole that uses our ultra-packable folding-pole technology. The revolutionary 3-section Z-Pole design features a coated inner cord, a single push-button release, and our speed cone deployment, which aligns like an avalanche probe for increased rigidity. The lightweight EVA grip features a non-slip extension for choking up on steep terrain, and the interchangeable tips provide multi-surface versatility.

  • 100% carbon fiber 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
  • 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.

How To Video: Black Diamond Z-Poles


Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Here are the facts, I use them twice a week on O'ahu on steep terrain. I owned them for 3-4 months and they have held up great. The first thing that happened with them was that the lock/push in button rusted making it difficult to press in unless I sprayed w WD-40 to clean it up. I recently slipped and the left pole was holding me up as I fell down in slow motion bending the pole into a "C" shape . I bent it back but I'm out off a pole now. I will keep buying thes but newer models. I'm happy with them. October 8, 2013
