Don't fall on your face.
The Distance Z Trekking Pole is Black Diamond's most affordable collapsible offering, but that doesn't mean it's lacking in quality or design. Although it's made of durable aluminum, the Distance Z still weighs well under a pound per pair, and it features the same collapsible design as Black Diamond's other Z-series poles. Just push a button to release the sections and pull the grip like an avalanche probe to reassemble when you're ready to go. The EVA foam grip has an extended mini-grip for easy traversing and side-hilling, and the breathable, padded strap provides plenty of support and comfort on both hot and cold days. Black Diamond also hooked up interchangeable carbide and rubber Tech Tips to help you handle all sorts of terrain, and it included trekking baskets to give you enough support on soft surfaces without catching on trees, roots, and rocks.

- Q & A
Lightweight and durable
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These trekking poles are great for backpacking - lightweight and durable. I'm 5'8" and I got the 120cm, but I found they were just a bit longer than I wanted. The 110cm would have definitely been too short though, so I just adjusted my grip down on the 120 and called it good!
Gets the job done
Not the lightest or most innovative, but works well and gets me up and down mountains. I use these for technical trail running and have been pretty stoked so far!
