The Distance Z is still Black Diamonds most affordable Z-Pole designed for everyday use but with improved joint support and a new, super easy-to-use SlideLock mechanism for locking and collapsing your poles.
Black Diamond says:
Designed for everyday use by trail runners and day hikes, the Distance Z is our most affordable Z-Pole. Now improved with our SlideLock technology and increased joint support, the Distance Z provides reliable three-season support for mountain adventures.
Black Diamond's 2018 Distance Z Trekking Poles features aluminium construction with a collapsible shaft that assembles and collapses quickly and easily thanks to the new SlideLock mechanism. A simple pull locks the parts of the shaft into place while another upwards pull unlocks the pole. The joints of the shaft have been given extra support making them stronger and more durable.
The lightweight EVA handle and foam extension give you a comfortable grip and the ability to choke up on tricky or steep terrain, while the padded, breathable, and moisture wicking strap provides lightweight support during long, arduous days. The Distance Z also comes complete with interchangeable carbide and rubber Tech Tips, so you can confidently cross anything without your poles letting you down.
