Ideal for endurance runners, light-and-fast hikers, and any adventure where ounces matter, the Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ trekking poles weigh less than 14 ounces per pair. Each pole features 100-percent carbon fiber construction and an adjustable length for the ultimate in adaptability. The three-section foldable shaft uses the company’s Speed Cone deployment and FlickLock adjustment system, and the lightweight, breathable, and moisture-wicking EVA foam grip ensures a comfortable hold, mile after mile. Along with interchangeable, non-scarring Tech Tips for traction, there’s a stopper back with a shaft catcher to secure the folded sections.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of size: 95-110 cm, 105-125 cm, or 120-140 cm. Two poles are included. This drop is limited to 35 units.
Black Diamond’s rapid deployment system uses a concealed inner cord, a single push-button release to collapse the pole, and a one-pull Speed Cone deployment. Simply grab the grip and the first shaft section, and pull them away from each other; the pole will then 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.
