A versatile, extremely stable pole with game-changing Z-Pole technology, the Black Diamond Distance Z meets the everyday demands of day hikers, backpackers and trail runners. 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 EVA ribbed 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.Includes interchangeable, non-marking Z-pole Rubber Tips, Z-pole Carbide Tips and stow bag.Stopper basket with shaft catcher secures folded sections.Color: Oxide Black.Import..NOTE: 3-season Z-Poles do not accept, or have fittings for snow or powder baskets..Sizes:.100: Usable Length 100cm (39 in.), Collapsed Length 33cm (13 in.), Weight 340g.
