Black DiamondDistance Carbon Z Trekking Poles

Wicked fast.

Some people like sports cars, others choose speed boats, and the few who can afford it even pilot private jets. Your choice in speedy transportation, however, are your own two feet—and the Distance Carbon Z Trekking Poles. The lightest collapsible poles that Black Diamond makes, their pure carbon construction keeps the weight down to a microscopic nine or ten ounces, so they're perfect for long-distance treks, speed hiking, and even ultra-running—if you're into that sort of thing. The collapsible shaft packs down small when you're speeding through the flat sections, then assembles with a quick pull so you can whip in out in half a jiffy, keeping that pace up during a steeper approach. EVA foam grips wick your sweaty palms dry so a lost pole doesn't break your record, and interchangeable tips means you can pick the most efficient tip for the terrain.

  • Three-season trekking poles ideal for ounce-counting speed hikers
  • Lightweight shaft perfect for fast adventure athletes
  • Foam grip is comfortable and sweat-wicking for all day runs
