The Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ combines ultralight carbon construction with the Z-Pole and flickLock Pro technology, creating a versatile and highly adjustable pole for weight conscious mountain adventures.
Black Diamond says:
When the ounces matter on long distance hikes or mountain journeys, the lightweight, highly adaptable Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ delivers 100% carbon construction, FlickLock Pro adjustability and a three-section foldable shaft. Combined with interchangeable, non-scarring Tech Tips and a lightweight EVA foam grip, your grasp and traction will be bomb proof.
If your after a lightweight, collapsible and adjustable pole for your adventures then the Distance Carbon FLZ is for you.
The Distance Carbon FLZ Trekking Pole 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.

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.
