  • Innovative folding Z-Pole system offers simple, compact and reliable support with a concealed inner cord, single push-button release and speed cone deployment
  • Inspired by snow probes, speed cones at the end of each pole section ensure strength, stability and super fast deployment; each speed cone guides a pole section into place

  • Easily replace and solidly secure pole tips with WaveLock™ tip connections
  • Right- and left-hand-specific straps are light, breathable and moisture-wicking; they feature breathable cut-out windows and easy rip-and-stick adjustability
  • Light, non-slip EVA foam grips feature foam extensions that allow poles to be held low during short side hill traverses
  • Strong aluminum shafts stand up to everyday use on the trail
  • Pole baskets feature shaft catchers to secure pole sections when folded; note: baskets are fixed in place and cannot be switched out for snow or powder baskets
  • Black Diamond Distance Z-Pole trekking poles come with interchangeable, nonmarking rubber tips, carbide tips and a stow bag

Black Diamond Distance Z-Pole Trekking Poles - Pairis rated4.5714out of5by7.
Rated4out of5byfromZ-polesWas a little nervous when i bought these trekking poles, thinking they might not hold up. I love these trekking poles. Very light weight and suprisingly sturdy. They pack away very easily and work great. My only complaint is that they are not snow basket compatable.

Rated3out of5byfromsuper light but...Got these for my wife. Ultra light and pack really small, about half the space of mine but seem really dainty. Grips, shaft, tips and baskets all seem very thin and flimsy. We also don't like the interchangeable tips, they can be a little hard to remove and who needs more parts to lose. They're good poles for her but for a larger person or heavier trekking I would recommend something a little more substantial.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat set of PolesUsed them a lot since i got them and must say they have not failed me yet. I did get them on sale and that is why i got them taking a chance, but i was glad i did get them. Very Compact when they are disassembled.

Rated5out of5byfromIdeal packable polesNever leave home without them. So small and light they can always go in you pack, ready if you need them. Not adjustable, but can support a lot of weight without budging.

Rated5out of5byfromThey work for meI was not sure if I would like the feel of using the poles. After a few weeks of use I found I do like them and it does make walking more enjoyable.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat for balance and rough terrain!Fit in my backpack and small 21 in. suitcase for flying. Gave good stability when climbing and over rough terrain while hiking at Machu Picchu and in the jungle. Perfect for this trip and know I will use them again and again. Appreciated the light weight and comfortable grip and stability. Not being an experienced hiker appreciated the confidence they gave me.
