The updated 2018 Distance Carbon FLZ combines ultralight carbon construction with the Z-Pole and flickLock Pro technology, with improved stiffness and durability and a weight reduction for the weight conscious mountain adventures. 

Black Diamond says:

Combining ultralight carbon construction with Z-Pole technology and FlickLock adjustability, the Distance Carbon FLZ is now stiffer and more durable, making it the ultimate pole in adjustable, folding performance. Sold as a Pair.

Black Diamond's Distance Carbon FLZ Trekking Poles maintain the lightweight, collapsible and adjustable features of the past version but with a lower weight, increased stiffness and durability.

The Distance Carbon FLZ is made of 100% carbon fiber, which keeps the weight down, and the collapsible shaft assembles with a quick pull so you can whip it out of your pack and be ready to go in a jiff. Unlike the Carbon Z model, this one has FlickLock Pro adjustability which allows you to adjust the pole lengths quickly with no hassle.

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 Carbon FLZ also comes complete with interchangeable carbide and rubber Tech Tips, so you can confidently cross anything without your poles letting you down.

Very happy

I used these poles for hiking Tour du Mont Blanc, GR20 and West Highland Way this summer. As they also function as my tent poles I planned to use them carefully as it would have been really difficult to put my tent up without them but once on the trail they got plenty of abuse, especially on the GR20. They were the lightest adjustable poles I could find and I have been very happy with them. Highly recommend.

Really good poles so far

Had these poles for 2 years. Mainly used for fell running. Very fast to deploy and fold away. Swapped the original tip for flex tech tips so I can change baskets. Very lightweight. No cracking yet despite extensive use on steep downhills. Really rate them. If they came with removable baskets and were free they would have five stars.
