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
  • 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 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Poles I rely on Black Diamond products because they are sturdy, well crafted, well made, and perform well. In looking for a new set of poles to travel with, this set caught my eye. They are light, very packable and quick to set up. One qualm would be not on the part of BD, but on my choice. I am heavy on my poles and beat them up pretty good while snowshoeing and backpacking. If you want a more solid pole that can take dings and nicks because you're like me, I suggest another pair. Other than that, BD has again delivered on a high quality piece of equipment. March 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by First time user pleased. I'd never used hiking poles before, never gave it a thought. Hiking around around slippery, steep roads and smoking volcanoes in Costa Rica's national parks was difficult enough even with poles. These poles were lightweight, easy to pack and deploy, and probably saved me some nasty scrapes and bruises. December 8, 2013
