Combining our versatile Distance Z-Pole with a natural, moisture-wicking cork grip, the Distance Cork is ready for active endeavors from trail running to backpacking. Learn More


The Black Diamond Distance Cork trekking pole adds a premium moisture-wicking cork grip to our popular Distance Z-Pole for active endeavors from trail running Germany's Zugspitze to backpacking via Switzerland's Wanderweg. Durable all-aluminum construction is matched with a coated inner cord and our innovative speed cones for deployment in just seconds while on the trail. 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, natural cork grip with EVA foam top and moisture-wicking strap
  • Non-slip foam mini grip extension for secure choke ups
  • Includes interchangeable, non-marking rubber Tech Tips and carbide Tech Tips
  • Stopper basket with shaft catcher secures folding sections
  • NOTE: 3-season 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.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicely done. Great poles. Trim weight, plenty sturdy, love the cork grips, and the quick fold/deploy and trim packed size is unrivaled. April 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lightweight and comfortable, even if the straps are a bit big I've come to these from a pair of BD Trail Ergo Cork poles, which are the only other trekking poles I've used. The lighter weight is appreciable, and the Z-Pole construction seems to eliminate a resonance I felt with the Trail Ergo Corks with each pole plant. I do prefer the larger, more contoured grips of the Trail Ergo Cork poles, though I do understand they would negate some of the weight benefits of the Distance Cork poles. The grips are, nonetheless, comfortable for my hands, which are usually a men's small glove or women's large glove size. If you have larger hands, you may not find the grips sufficiently substantial. I have yet to be able to do any extensive trail testing, but have hiked with the poles over some fairly technical terrain. They seem sturdy, the baskets are just enough to keep them from sinking in mud, and despite being a bit too large in M/L size, the straps seem to be ok. I'm certainly not as enthused with them as the lovely, comfortable straps provided on the Trail Ergo Corks (particularly as I've heard about durability issues and replacements are not easily come by for Canadian customers), and I do think you should be able to choose which size you receive with the poles rather than potentially having to order a different size and ending up with a useless pair. Overall, I'm pleased with the performance and the reduced weight - may have to come back update after I get them out on their first backpacking trip in a few weeks. April 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product, but read to the end So as you can see they are VERY light weight. So you might assume they are a bit fragile, but that would be incorrect. They are sturdy. (I'm not a thin person) I didn't use them to pry boulders out of the way, but I don't sense that they would bend easily. I give it a green light - just buy em. And I will send a product to heck if I don't like it, so please don't assume I'm writing this just to put on a smiley face. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent pole This pole is excellent for the price. Love the cork and the Z pole design. April 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's compact and light weight I got these trekking poles for my short treks overseas. I needed something light and easy to pack especially because I bring them whenever I know I will get a chance to explore the sites. It comes in very handy. I'm glad I got these. April 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Short when folded; light to carry This summer, I used these poles hiking huts on the Tour of Jungfrau and found them to be perfect for that type of hiking - light, sturdy, easy to deploy, and invisible storage. Then we trekked the Way of St James (El Camino de Santiago de Compostela) in Spain - a 500 mile trek. Again, these poles were perfect because we did not need to use them very often so they stored nicely in my side pocket of my Gossamer Gear backpack. They did not stick out so I did not have to worry about poking others around me when I turned around!!! At 9 ounces, who would want any other pole?? December 18, 2013
