Whether your mission is a long trek toting a heavy pack or getting a few powder laps touring in the backcountry, the Black Diamond Ultra Mountain Carbon pole combines lightweight, 100% carbon fiber construction and Z-Pole compactability into the ultimate 4-season package. When compacted, the Ultra Mountain Carbon easily fits in your pack, and our innovative speed cone technology allows for deployment in just seconds. We included Trekking Baskets and Compactor Powder Baskets to easily transition from summer to winter endeavors.

  • 100% carbon fiber construction
  • 3-section Z-Pole folding design with speed cone deployment
  • Lightweight Mountain Series EVA foam grip with breathable, moisture-wicking strap
  • Non-slip foam mini grip extension for secure choke-ups
  • Flex Tech Tips with carbide installed, rubber tips included
  • 60 mm Trekking Baskets and Compactor Powder Baskets included


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 5 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product I used these hiking Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali Coast on Kauai last week. Great feel, light, very stable. Slick design, collapse/extend very easily and securely. I LOVE the fact they collapse down to an easily packable size. No more having to figure out how to check poles when flying. Only possible disadvantage is that they are fixed size, but I really don't see this as a problem. May 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Maybe the best trekking pole ever I wanted to wait and write a review after I had a chance to put these through their paces, and I am absolutely thrilled with the durability, ease of use, and light weight of these poles. I have used them on Aconcagua, in Ecuador, throughout the US, and on a recent expedition to Nepal to attempt Dhaulagiri. These have excelled in all terrain (whether I am loaded down with a huge pack or not) without any problems at all. I am not easy on my gear and I have always been reluctant to go to carbon fiber because of fears of breaking, but these things can take a beating and just keep on trucking. You will not be disappointed in these poles - simply put, I don't think there's a better pole on the market for the money. May 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic: light and quick I use these poles extensively for summer guiding work. Like others, I remove the straps immediately. Also run them very short, most folks' poles are too long for mountain travel. January 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight and strong These poles provide stability when I need it but also fold away nicely when not needed. They are amazingly light and strong. They do not collapse as do some other makes. November 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Length of a ruler, weight of a pencil Used the Z-poles all over the Canadian Rockies and Khumbu over the last couple of years. I love 'em, length of ruler and weight of a pencil. I'm on my second pair of 90 cms (I think that short is good). Fitting them totally into the pack with nothing sticking out like Sputnik is great. I get a kick every time I snap them together like a switchblade and say to my clients, who wrestle with three section twist locks, "Ready to trek!" Cool. I loss the wrist straps first thing (I do that with all of my poles: trekking and sking, except for my nordic ski poles). June 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bomber and packable These poles are perfect for hiking into a route, stuffing them into your pack, then pulling them out and hiking back to base camp. They easily fit into my small pack and don't even notice them while climbing. They are super light but still bomber. June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfection is attained when there is nothing more to take away... I have used these poles all winter splitboarding and on a few longer trailruns, they are superduper light, compact and fit inside your pack, no more falling with fear of poking yourself in the head or butt. Mods: I stripped the wrist straps off (super easy to do). Also, I like to bring some duck tape always for, you-just-never-know, so I wrapped some around the shaft that doubles as an extra, lower hold. There's no adjustability on these poles, so if you are looking for a bomber, quadruple adjustable pole with a bunch of options, check out the BD ski-poles. If you want no bs, packability, simplicity and the lightest, stealthiest pole around... this is the one. June 6, 2013
