Pro Tip: Joe Grant On The Distance Carbon Z Trekking Pole

BD ATHLETE JOE GRANT DISCUSSES CARBON DISTANCE Z

Distance Carbon Z Trekking/Running Poles is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, lightweight, and strong I've had my Carbon Z trekking poles for about a year and consider them an essential part of my hiking, backpacking, ad SAR gear. They are a great combination of lightweight yet strong, and pack nicely whether in a day pack or a 70L pack. I depend on them whenever I go downhill. I think they are the best poles available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great poles for trail running I used the poles twice so far for long (4+ hour) trail runs in technical trails in the US Northeast. They collapse/fold easily and the grip is nicely designed. I am not sure about durability yet, as I've yet to put them through some of the usual beating that poles take when trail running. Still, I would recommend those to any trail runner looking for a light, easy to use option when it comes to poles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light weight but.... Bought these in January and used them 3 times. Light, compact but one broke on a climb. I emailed them and only received a automated message saying they would contact me within a couple days. It's now been a week. I hate leaving reviews till I see how the service is but after a week I'm taking this as the second step to possibly hearing back about the issue I had. I Would use these typically 10+ times a month while training and for my ultra races. Hoping to resolve this before my 100 miler

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thru-Hike Tested I used these for a 1400 mile section hike of the PCT last summer. I was concerned about the durability of the material, but they never lost their stiffness or showed signs of wear. They were comfortable, light, and easy to fold up when I stuffed them in the outside of my pack. Highly recommended for fast and light hiking, and thru hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! I bought these last summer and love them. My hands don’t sweat as bad with these handles. I bought two sets for Christmas for my kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uber light Really like these poles. I like how compact they fold up, so I can tuck them easily in various packs or slots. And for the lightweight... uber light. No brainer to bring just in case I need them and feels like when I am using them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lightweight trekking poles But...they aren't indestructible! I've had mine for 5 years. My husband has broken on three years in a row. At $140/pr (and you can't buy just one) it gets expensive! Other than breakage, no downside at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Even when you DNF these poles make the race a great experience. Worth every penny.
