Inspired by avalanche probes, Black Diamond’s Z-pole technology allows ski and trekking poles to be super small while stored and then with a simple upward pull on the handle the pole instantly reaches it's full height. The super-short collapsed length (just 15 or 16 inches, depending on total length chosen) makes it ideal for multi-day skiing and snowshoeing endeavors where pack space is at a premium. While many of ultra-light backpacking-oriented Z-poles are not height-adjustable, the Compactor ski pole adds a single FlickLock section for up to 20cm of adjustability. Bringing our innovative folding Z-Pole technology to winter sports, the Black Diamond Compactor is a four-season aluminum pole that collapses to an ultra-compact package for easy storage.

basically what the flicklocks should rationally be
The ever popular flick-locks are simplified here. The z with yank to expand thanks to the tent pole like linking. Haven't had then extended yet, but this is a good deal. They are similar to the distance pole. There is grip tape like material on the uppers. Will use for winter hikes and likely splitboarding.
