Durable, packable and highly versatile, the Alpine FLZ Pole is now improved with the new SlideLock adjustable technology, making it easier to use. It now also features increased joint support, making the pole stiffer. Adjust the FlickLock Pro system for a perfect fit and transition from summer hikes to winter ski tours by simply swapping the baskets.

Black Diamond says:

The Black Diamond Alpine FLZ is a four-season workhorse—equally at home on a summer jaunt far from the trailhead or on a winter tour deep in the backcountry. Now upgraded with our new SlideLock technology, which improves ease-of-use when locking and collapsing your poles, the Alpine FLZ can easily transition from summer to winter by swapping the Trekking Baskets with Compactor Powder Baskets. We’ve also improved the joint support, making the pole’s 30% stiffer. With its durable aluminum construction combined with a three-section foldable design with FlickLock® Pro adjustability, the Alpine FLZ is reliable support in the mountains.
