Alpine FLZ Trekking Poles with Tip Protector - 2017
DescriptionNo stranger to crossover, the Black Diamond Alpine FLZ is the best Z-pole for four-season use, just as at home on a summer jaunt far from the trailhead as on a winter tour deep in the backcountry. With 60 mm Trekking Baskets and Compactor Powder Baskets that are easily swapped to provide four-season usability, it also features an aluminum construction combined with a three-section foldable design that keeps your load light and fast.

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.
