Please select options


If trekking poles are a mountain runner's "samurai swords," then the Black Diamond Distance Carbon is the Hattori Hanzo edition.

Designed in collaboration with BD Athlete Joe Grant, the fixed-length Distance Carbon weighs in at only 95 grams per pole (120 cm), making it the lightest pole Black Diamond has ever produced.
The touch-points are minimal, though carefully placed, such as the subtle mid-shaft ring for balance and grip while carrying the pole horizontally.
The slimmed Distance Grip consists of an ultralight, durable EVA foam, and the tip has been completely redesigned to a lower profile that also accepts z-pole snow baskets.
Simply put, these poles are engineered to go fast, whether you're 10 hours into an ultra, or linking peaks in fast and light style.

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.
