Built for deep winter trailbreaking or gear-laden alpine approaches, the Alpine Carbon Z-Pole combines three-section compaction with a light, stiff, four-season construction.
Black Diamond says:
Our durable, four-season, carbon trekking pole now has improved joint support and increased durability, making the Alpine Carbon Z-Pole a strong yet ultralight pole for mountain missions.
Z-Pole Rapid Deployment System
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. Sold as a Pair.
When lightweight, durable utility is paramount, the Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Z delivers 100% carbon construction combined with a three-section foldable shaft for quick storage and speed-cone deployment for on-the-move extension.
What sets it apart among the Z-series of poles is that it features interchangeable baskets allowing it to be more effectively used in snowy, more wintry conditions.
