The Black Diamond Alpine FLZ is a four-season workhorse—equally at home on a summer jaunt far from the trailhead or on a winter tour deep in the backcountry. Now upgraded with our new SlideLock technology, which improves ease-of-use when locking and collapsing your poles, the Alpine FLZ can easily transition from summer to winter by swapping the Trekking Baskets with Compactor Powder Baskets. We’ve also improved the joint support, making the pole’s 30% stiffer. With its durable aluminum construction combined with a three-section foldable design with FlickLock® Pro adjustability, the Alpine FLZ is reliable support in the mountains.

Z-Pole Rapid Deployment System

Z-Pole Rapid Deployment System

  • Concealed inner cord
  • Single push-button release to collapse the pole
  • One-pull, Speed Cone deployment

Speed Cone technology comes from our expertise in avalanche probe design—a key component of Z-Poles' stiffness and fast deployment. Simply grab the grip and the first shaft section, and pull them away from each other. The pole will snap into place and lock. Each Speed Cone guides a shaft section into place, and stiffens the joint when the pole is locked. Protective, flexible tube ends cover the pole’s Kevlar® center cord when folded.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Alpine FLZ Trekking poles broke after 4 months After ca. 15 hikes / 4 months one of the poles suddenly broke and I had an accident because of that. (Not the other way round!) There were no visible damages on the pole from previous hikes and unfortunately that part of the pole that broke is not possible to inspect anyway - at least before collapsing. These poles are really dangerous and I cannot recommend those to anybody. I didn't purchase the Carbon-only version because I was worried about poor stability and high risk of accidents. Finally I had to learn that even the Aluminum-Version is not that durable....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong lightweight packable trekking poles All that trekking poles should be. Nice to have that strong shaft, comfortable with with the cork handles and quality straps. Light weight appreciated... can't be much lighter and still be this strong. Will be using these on future treks... they were great in the Dolomites this summer. Would have liked to have had a bag to put the folded stocks into... Black Diamond, at this price is this too much to ask of an excellent company like yours?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Poles These are my go to poles for hiking, backing and scrambling in the Sierra. You can dial in the length without worrying about them sliding shorter. The grip is comfortable. They are light. They fold up small and fit in my summit pack when I don't need them anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable pole I bought this pole because I am preparing for beginner level alpine mountaineering for the next few years. It has several advantages comparing with the distance carbon FLZ (2016/2017 model) I own. The size of the grip of Alpine FLZ is much larger than the FLZ carbon so it gives you much better grip. The grip is made of cork and thus it gives you comfortable feeling when comparing with the EVA foam grip of distance carbon FLZ which has rough surface. The rough surface will keep abrading your skin. The strap holding your wrist is also much better than the FLZ carbon. It has much larger strap so more surface area can be provided to distribute the stress when your wrist is supporting the weight of your body. It is constructed with a cushion materials so your wrist will not get fatigue easily. For carbon FLZ, the strap is really a piece of fabric which the roughness is rougher than a 240 sand paper (in my personal view). The deployment of this pole is easier. The carbon FLZ is not that "smooth" during deployment since the lowest shaft of the pole cannot line up easily. Sometime you will have to manually adjust the position of the lowest shaft for successful deployment when swinging cannot do the job. This is kind of alloying especially when the other hand is holding another pole. For alpine FLZ, you can solve the problem simply by swinging. The rigidity of both pole are almost the same. But carbon FLZ has more "springing" feeling possibly due to its light weight feature. If you weigh comfort more than weight then you should probably choose alpine FLZ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant Used poles to hike my first 14er. They worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and adjustable I’ve had a chance to try these both hiking in the mountains and running trails near my house. I’m still dialing in my preferred settings but found them to be rugged enough to handle the rocky granite of the Massanutten trail and light enough for a quick run on local trails. I like the ~20cm of adjustability and the ability to quickly adjust in the fly with flick lock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These polls literally saved my life I decided to cross Baron Creek May 19 2018. First part of the crossing was shallow out to a bar. The second part got waist deep. Huge rocks to step on. My footing was unsure. The water was literally pushing me away. I planted the polls in front of me and had my back to the rushing water. I made 1 step at a time and finally got to the other side. 1 issue - I had to cross back on the way back! Thank you polls, thank you earth.
