TREKKING POLES

Black Di­a­mond Dis­tance Car­bon FLZ $170

Canadian Running - - THE OVER-PREPARED TRAIL RUNNER -

Trekking poles are nec­es­sary when tack­ling steep, tech­ni­cal ter­rain, par­tic­u­larly in the moun­tains. But it’s no fun drag­ging around heavy, cum­ber­some gear that you’ll only use spar­ingly dur­ing a day of mov­ing fast through sin­gle­track. We rec­om­mend the Dis­tance Car­bon FLZ be­cause, just as the name sug­gests, they are made of car­bon fi­bre, which makes them ul­tra-light. They are also eas­ily col­lapsable and easy to stow.
