Built with durable lightweight aluminum and featuring compactable FlickLock®Pro adjustability, the Black Diamond Distance FLZ defines versatile support. Ideal for everything from backpacking to short day hikes, the Distance FL’s 20 cm of adjustability lets you tweak the length for sidehilling and changing inclines. Much like their avalanche probes, their speed cone deployment employs a coated inner Kevlar cord and conical shaft ends for quick and strong alignment. You 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. They also have a lightweight ribbed EVA grip with mini extension for quick choke-ups on steep inclines and interchangeable tips for variable trail surfaces. Breathable, moisture wicking, mesh wrist straps are right and left hand specific to maximize pushing power and minimize wrist pinch.Non-slip foam mini grip extension for secure choke ups.Includes interchangeable, non-marking Z-pole Rubber Tips, Z-poleCarbide Tips.Stopper basket with shaft catcher secures folded sections.Color: Blue Ridge.Import..NOTE: 3-season Z-Poles do not accept, or have fittings for snow or powder baskets.Sizes:.Small: Usable Length 95-110cm (37-43 in.), Collapsed Length 34cm (13 in.), Weight 440g.
