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.

Distance Carbon FLZ Trekking Poles - 2017 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality but sizing issue I own 2 pairs of carbon Z 110cm, simply love black diamond so bought this Flz to share with husband. The 110cm Z is perfect, i can see my elbows in 90 degree when holding them. however, with Flz, even without my hiking boots, i have to adjust to slghtly lower than 120cm. This means my husband who is slightly taller cannot use it. Sizing is not reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great poles, easy to use and lightweight I am doing a few events coming up (including a 100 miler, my first) so believe poles will be a must. After much research I settled on these poles because they were carbon, adjustable and easy to collapse and put up. These were the only poles that ticked all my boxes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light & Fast Amazingly light and the collapsible features allow it to go from pack to hand (for faster running) or fully extended. Potential weak point where locking detent button meets carbon sleeve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pass though airport screening. Very light and strong. Can pass though airport screening. Handles a little rough but can be moved around or used with light gloves

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So light I carry them all the time Bought these midway through the summer and now always have them with me. I am not a constant pole user but there are times when they are handy - but until I had these lightweight, foldable poles, I generally did without. Now, they are always in my pack and I find myself using them more often than I thought. The grips are comfy over a long period of hiking and don't give me blisters like my older poles. I also like that the poles don't make a lot of noise during use - remember the clink clack of spring loaded poles? Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Features! I bought these just 2 weeks ago. A friend will use them in Rome for walking the seven hills and then I will be using them for hiking for myself. I like the compactness of these poles, making them easy to fit in a carry on suitcase for travel. They are also light weight and adjustable for different heights. My last poles were difficult to pack do to not folding. I'm looking forward to using them in October.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good for light walkers Took a pair up a couple fourteeners and they broke where the other reviewers are showing the break. Returned then to SLC headquarters and they gave me the aluminum version. Which also broke after about 200km of use. In the same place as the carbon ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight miracle No reason not to bring these on your next adventure. So light. They stow away quickly when you don't need them, lend confidence to the downs and make you a machine on the uphills.
