“It's pretty rare that I use poles... but when I have, the Black Diamond Distance Carbon Z Poles are awesome! Lightweight and collapsible, they are easy to carry or stow. They are great on steep ascents." - Janessa Taylor
"Fast and Light" is a common theme among our ambassadors. It is important to be able to move fast and light on the side of a mountain in Patagonia. It's key to move fast and light to capture the fastest known time on the Oregon PCT. And it's imperative to move fast and light when competing in UTMB as Janessa did last year.
Which is why this week's #skoutfind focuses on Black Diamond’s Distance Carbon Z Trekking Poles!
Each pole is designed with an inner cord and a three-section foldable design, allowing for simple on-the-run deployment. Need to put them away? A single push-button release allows for simple collapse on the move.
100% carbon construction makes the Distance Carbon Z Trekking Poles incredibly light at just 9 ounces per pair. Non-scarring rubber "Tech Tips" help provide grip, and the dense, durable EVA foam grips provide for a lightweight, moisture-wicking hold on the poles.
