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 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great poles Black Diamond have really got their design sorted with this pole. Short pack length is great for international travel, good range of adjustment, and quality is second to non. I use mine for mountain trekking and as support for my tent or tarp. A popup camera mount would make these perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hiking Through the Vale of Geriatria Ever since I began using a double ski pole system for virtually all the hiking I do (and long after those years when the tick-tick-ticking of trekking poles on the trails behind me first began to drive me nuts) these have become the single item I can go nowhere without. Take the pressure off your ankles; take the pressure off your back; and keep your arms strong. You just might be able to keep going... Compared to other poles I'd been using, whether simple old ski poles, fancy shock-absorber units, Canadian crutches, or bamboo staffs taken from the side of the trail, these have all the advantages: 1) Super lightweight, of course. 2) Easy to deploy or fold up, and the Z-system means they fold as short as possible. 3) Easy-to-exchange carbide or plastic tips to have the best grip for any surface. 4) The internal tension adjustment keeps the segments from rattling after long use. 5) The flick-lock length adjustment is as quick and useful as possible. The field below asks how often I use them: why does the scale stop at 10X per month? I use them daily. These poles (along with a little bit of hip surgery) have taken me from a lifetime low capability of 500 ft./hr. back to 1500 ft./hr.; and I should be back at 2000 soon. The doctor (me) recommends them without exception. Thanks to Pete M. and his crew for this design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to carry These are surprisingly lightweight poles. They feel sturdy and comfortable, and won’t weigh me down as I guide backpacking trips!
