Staff tip:Before you hit the track − when setting up the poles, listen for an audible 'click' to indicate that the locking mechanism has popped out, ensuring pole stability and subsequently avoiding a mid−trek collapse.
Staff tip:Hey, keen hikers − remember to always store your poles disassembled and dry, to avoid corrosion.
What are differences (other than colour) between the womens version and the standard distance Carbon FLZ poles? both come in the same sizes so its not clear what the design differences are, as they look identical?
Sherie - Sydney, NSW(2 months ago)
The main difference is the grip size/ratio and length of the wrist support strap, as statistically men have larger hands. I'm not a small woman by any means, but I have significantly smaller hands or smaller ratios on my hands than all of my male colleagues for example. Whilst there's no real difference in length and weight, etc I would recommend going with the women's poles for comfort.

What is the weight of the Black Diamond Distance Carbon FLZ?
Patricia - Sun Valley, NSW (11 months ago)
Because the weight is different per size, it will be shown in the specifications when you select which option you are after from the drop-down menu. Hope that helps!

Pole size1 answer
Thank you Lauren for the reply to my last question. I measured 110cm from the floor to the palm of my hand. Some poles give a range, 95-110cm or 105 - 125cm. My dilemma is I fit in both ranges. Which is best for me?
Ann - Braemar, NSW (1 year ago)
G'day again Ann,
I'd opt for the larger size, it gives you the ability to adjust your poles depending on the topography of your walks, as necessary. Generally, if you are hitting a reasonable incline, you'll want to shorten your poles - similarly lengthen them when heading down a slope. The rule of thumb for this adjustment is around 5cm, give or take - so that bigger size will cover you.
Obviously this mostly applies to hikers hitting some great hilly tracks, if you're using them for nordic walking of similar, the 110cm setting will be your main one.

If I'm 157cm tall, what size in these poles would be best for me?
Ann - Braemar, NSW (1 year ago)
Standing up right, keeping your arm beside your body, bend at the elbow 90º with your forearm & hand perpendicular to your body. Measure from the ground to your hand - this measurement is the size you'll aim to get in hiking poles.
