Building on the previous success of the 3-season Ultra Distance carbon-fiber trekking poles, the new Ultra Mountain Carbon Z-Poles from Black Diamond take the super-light weight and excellent compactibility of their summertime counterparts and beef it up to a level of durability that can withstand the rigors of winter in the mountains. Inspired by the design of avalanche probes, a quick pull on the handle is all it takes to extend and lock the poles. Sold in ten-centimeter size increments; each length is fixed and non-adjustable.
With a weight as low as 485g per pair, the Ultra Mountain Carbon poles will hold you up in the snow without weighing you down.
