Like a good adventure partner, the Distance FLZ is strong when you aren’t, supportive when you’re bonking and easily adjustable when the terrain calls for adaptability. Now combining our new SlideLock technology, which makes locking and collapsing the pole even easier, with FlickLock® adjustability, the Distance FLZ is a mainstay for hard-hitting mountain adventurers. The upgraded Distance FLZ is also 30% stiffer with improved joint support. The pole’s three-section foldable design allows for fast-response deployment, making the Distance FLZ the ultimate, adaptable three-season pole with durable aluminum construction.

Speed Cone technology comes from our expertise in avalanche probe design—a key component of Z-Poles' stiffness and fast deployment. Simply grab the grip and the first shaft section, and pull them away from each other. The pole will snap into place and lock. Each Speed Cone guides a shaft section into place, and stiffens the joint when the pole is locked. Protective, flexible tube ends cover the pole’s Kevlar® center cord when folded.
