The Black Diamond Alpine FLZ is a four-season workhorse—equally at home on a summer jaunt far from the trailhead or on a winter tour deep in the backcountry. Now upgraded with our new SlideLock technology, which improves ease-of-use when locking and collapsing your poles, the Alpine FLZ can easily transition from summer to winter by swapping the Trekking Baskets with Compactor Powder Baskets. We’ve also improved the joint support, making the pole’s 30% stiffer. With its durable aluminum construction combined with a three-section foldable design with FlickLock® Pro adjustability, the Alpine FLZ is reliable support in the mountains.

Z-POLE RAPID DEPLOYMENT SYSTEM
- Concealed inner cord
- Single push-button release to collapse the pole
- One-pull, Speed Cone deployment
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.
To find your perfect pole length, let your ark hand down. Lift your forearm until your arm is bent in a 90 angle (forearm is parallel to the floor) Clench a fist like you hold a stick. Now measure the distance between the floor and the upper side of your fist. Check the size chart to get your ideal pole. If you intend to go a lot uphill and downhill, you may consider buying poles that are easy to adjust the length.
