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 5 out of 5 by from Love these lightweight poles!! Just used these for the first time on a two night excursion into the backcountry in Glacier NP and boy was I happy to have them! The jungle-like undergrowth was up to our chest a lot of the time and completely obscured our view from where we were stepping so they came in hugely useful for not only protecting our ankles from unseen terrain, but also for bushwhacking our way through wet entanglements. I was impressed by how well they held up my 140lb frame. There were a few times when all of my weight was balanced on one pole at an awkward angle and I felt absolutely no bending nor give to either pole. Love these little lifesavers! Thanks BD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durability is Oustanding These poles lasted me 1,000+ miles, which includes the first 800 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. They are so lightweight, packable, adjustable to all the sizes I ever need, and have even stood against over 30 mountain ascents in the Sierra Nevada! Not to mention the awesome design. I have hardly ever slipped with these; moreover, they've saved me from major knee pains and countless potential ankle rolls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked them so much, I bought two pairs I use them for trail running and they are great. Fit on my pack when not using, easy to hold when folded when I'm using them off and on, lightweight, durable (broke two pairs of a different brand before). Very happy with them. And purple!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my poles BUT ... I bought my poles a few years ago and have used them hiking and snowshoeing. I love their convertibility and weight. I would not say I have over used them or that they have paid for themselves yet so I am disappointed that one of them just broke. The folding green plastic and metal inset piece have moved into the larger shaft and now I can connect them to use. I hope that they can be fixed. I would recommend then otherwise. If they can be fixed I would recommend them 100%

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great intro to hiking I signed up for a hiking tour of Iceland. I've never hiked before. Did some research on trekking poles, found these fabulous Black Diamond ones and have so enjoyed them. They do indeed fold easily into my pack and unfold so readily into sturdy trekking poles when needed. I would never have survived the challenging hiking venues without them. Bless these poles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BD Keeps Improving Their Trekking Poles Kathy here. These are light enough that the swing-weight feels fast. Easy and quick to deploy or pack away. Strong enough to be reliable. I find the grips slightly hard (not soft in the palm), and perhaps other women will, too. Overall: thumbs up. Thanks, BD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, folds down small Really liking these so far. They seem durable and pack down small - so they don't stick out on a pack which is really important especially for mountain rescue missions or during rock pitches after a steep approach.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for short ladies! I purchased the FLZ Trekking Poles-women's this spring. Totally disappointed they are too long for me to use comfortably. Nice concept poles, but too bad a lady needs to be 5'6" and above in order to use them!
