Bringing together the best of Black Diamond's collapsible Z-series and adjustable FlickLock design, the Distance FLZ Trekking Poles are lightweight, durable sticks for everything from short hikes to heavy multi-day treks. They're made of tough aluminum, which offers plenty of support without breaking and have EVA foam grips with lightweight foam extensions and breathable padded straps to offer support on rocky crossings, steep ascents, and treacherous sidehills.
The FLZs' real trick, though, is their three-section collapsible shafts and FlickLock length adjustment system. By pushing a button and pulling on the grip, you can collapse and assemble the pole as you would an avalanche probe. Once assembled, the FlickLock provides a bomber adjustment mechanism, giving you 20cm of adjustment so you can always find the perfect fit regardless of terrain. Black Diamond also included interchangeable carbide and rubber Tech Tips for grip on various surfaces, so you'll be confident no matter where your adventures take you.

- Q & A
Grip too small and wrist band thin
I'm used to Black Diamond products being of the highest quality, lasting for years. I ordered these trekking poles expecting the same quality. I was very disappointed. The grips seem too narrow, cheaply made, and didn't provide much cushion. The wrist band was made from a thin material likewise had little cushioning. I expect after a long day of hiking that the grips would be uncomfortable. The poles themselves seemed well made but looked like I couldn't change the trekking basket to a powder basket for winter hiking. Next time I'll go to a store first because now I'll have to pay a return shipping fee.
Do the poles come with both powder and trekking baskets?
Hey David, these trekking poles will not include a powder basket. Powder baskets are sold separately for trekking poles and come stock with winter poles. I also would not recommend these poles for downhill skiing. These poles are specifically designed to withstand the stress encountered by trekking. If you are planning on using them for snowshoeing or split-boarding they will work well but i would not use them as downhill poles. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out to me directly via the information listed above.
The prise is for a pair or a single trekking pole?
Hey Qi! This price is for a pair of trekking poles!
