The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Distance Carbon FLZ is Black Diamond's most technical hiking or trail pole. They combine the lightness of Z-Pole technology with the versatility of a telescopic hiking pole. Available in three different sizes to fit all body types, they weigh less than 380 grams.
Their 100% carbon fiber frame combines strength and lightness. The 3 strands Z construction makes unfolding easier and faster. Then, the FlickLock Pro adjustment allows you to fine-tune the size of your poles so that they are effective both uphill and downhill. The FlickLock setting is also very useful if your tent is set up with one or two trekking poles.
Comfort is still an important issue that Black Diamond has not downplayed. The Distance straps are adjustable and made from recycled materials to ensure breathability. The EVA foam grips with grip extension are ergonomic and non-slip.
Tech carbide tips are interchangeable with non-marking rubber tips (included). Two sizes of washers are also provided, summer/winter.
