These Black Diamond Distance Carbon AR poles have been specifically designed for those who want to move efficiently and as light as possible in the mountains. They use the ingenious Speed Cone technology that was developed for their superb avalanche probes. The problem with avalanche probes is that they need to be very long, yet very compact for easy transportation. So BD developed a system that allows the poles to be folded up into shorter sections (in a ‘Z’ style) and then "snapped" together for fast and simple deployment.

This Speed Cone technology has been applied to these trekking poles to allow them to be folded up small for easy transportation and then quickly snapped together when required without having to twist and lock each section. To assemble the poles 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 centre cord when folded and the sections are kept neatly secured by a notch in the basket. Once assembled you can fine tune the fit with the FlickLock adjuster on the top section, this will give you around 20cm of fine tuning to get the fit bang on or to quickly adjust for steeper ground.

These poles are stiff, durable and efficient to use without sacrificing exceptional adjustability. The ‘AR’ in the name stands for Accessory Ready – this is because these handy little poles are also compatible with Black Diamonds Distance Tent (which weighs only 725g!). They also feature an extended non-slip foam grip that is exceptionally comfortable and helps to minimise vibrations from hard surfaces and because it extends down the pole it offers varied grip positions when ascending or descending. The soft padded strap is attached using a cord loop to allow for a free-flowing walking technique and reduced bulk.

These versatile, super lightweight and compact poles are supplied with interchangeable non-scarring rubber Tech Tips and carbide Tech Tips to suit different terrain.

Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!
