The Black Diamond Distance Carbon AR gives you a lightweight carbon trekking pole with a compact folding design and an Accessory Ready grip.
Built for fast-moving trail missions, it features an Accessory Ready grip that lets you attach components to transform the Distance Carbon AR into the structure poles for its fast and light hiking companion the Distance UL Shelter.
The Z-Pole rapid deployment system assembles the 3-section shaft in seconds with 20cm of height adjustment to suit a wide range of users and challenging terrains. A push-button release collapses the pole to a travel-friendly 38cm. A lightweight EVA foam grip makes it comfortable to hold for long periods of time on the trail while the carbon shaft provides a minimal pack weight of just 388g.
The Distance Carbon AR also comes with interchangeable non-scarring rubber tech tips and carbide tech tips for on-trail versatility.
I already own a pair of Black Diamond FLZ poles and was looking at adapting them (drilling a hole in them) to add a 1/4 bolt to use the pole as a camera monopod. However after some advice I opted to buy these instead. On top of the handgrip is a lime green flap. On flipping this off (no tool required) there is a hole, that goes down into the handle. To fulfill my requirement to convert it into a monopod I also purchased the Black Diamond 1/4 -20 universal adapter from here too. The adapter fits into the hole in the top of the handle and screws down into the hole. This leaves only the top black 1/4 inch bolt thread sticking out. I was then able to fit my Mirrorless DSLR camera to the top. The solution is perfect and I now have a fabulous walking pole that doubles as a camera monopod when I need it too... amazing!
