Easy to pack and quick to assemble.

For cutting-edge technology combined with the classic feel of a cork grip, look no further than the Black Diamond Distance Cork Trekking Pole. The natural cork grip wicks away moisture for a slip-free hold while the 15-inch collapsed length allows you to easily stow the poles in your pack when the trail requires some steep fourth-class scrambling.

  • Z-Pole speed cone deployment uses an interior KEVLAR® cord which allows you to instantly assemble the three-section pole by pulling the grip and first shaft section away from each other
  • Z-Pole system allows you to collapse the pole with a single push of a button
  • Collapsed length of just 15 inches long (for the 120cm pole) provides compact packing
  • Natural cork grip with moisture-wicking strap provides all-day comfort and support
  • EVA mini-grip extension allows you to quickly choke-up on the pole on steep sections of trail
  • Includes stopper baskets with shaft catchers to secure folded sections
  • Includes both Flex Tech carbide tips and rubber tips
  • Pole does not have fittings for snow or powder baskets

Not bad, bad nothing fancy.

    I like these poles just fine considering I didn't splurge in price. From a price to performance perspective, these are working well for me. They are simple, but comfortable. The rubber tips were okay, but the carbides worked better. I needed pliers to change the tips. They are not set up for winter as they have tiny little baskets with no snow flotation and the wrist straps are far too small to get around heavy winter gloves or mittens. Still, I do like them and am happy with them for occasional 3 season use.


    Crappy Straps

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These were my first pair of trekking poles and loved the support that they offered, definitely hooked. The only problem I had was with the durability of the wrist straps. I used these on a 14 day, 140 mile Haute Route trek across Switzerland and by the time the trip was over I had pretty much thrashed the straps. I wish black diamond had used a descent piece of webbing instead of this flimsy mesh stuff.
