With words like Z-Pole Technology, Eva foam grip, and FlickLock Pro clasp, could you even doubt the Black Diamond Ultra Mountain FL Trekking Z-Pole's legitimacy? Designed to efficiently help get you, your pack, and all of your gear to your desired destinationï¿½whether that be a mountain summit or the opposite end of a cross-country skiing tourï¿½this all-season, aluminum-crafted pole is widely versatile. In fact, it's rumored that the Z-Pole is quickly gaining popularity among runway models, as it provides added stability when strutting in heels and reduces the risk of sprained ankles. (We may or may not have started that rumor.) Regardless, this Black Diamond gem boasts of having the best features that a simple trekking pole can offer: non-slip foam grips and Z-Pole technology that makes it easy to collapse and stow the pole when not in use; however, there's a good chance you'll never need that function. After one use, you won't want to go anywhere without it again. Not even to get your newspaper in the morning. Lucky for you, it's built to be resilient; even after years of wear, you'll probably still be using it in lieu of a cane on your 103rd birthday.
