Durable, packable and highly versatile, the Alpine FLZ Pole is now improved with our new SlideLock adjustable technology, making it easier to use. We've also increased joint support, making the pole stiffer. Adjust the FlickLock Pro system for a perfect fit and transition from summer hikes to winter ski tours by simply swapping the baskets.
The Black Diamond Alpine FLZ is a four-season workhorse-equally at home on a summer jaunt far from the trailhead or on a winter tour deep in the backcountry. Now upgraded with our new SlideLock technology, which improves ease-of-use when locking and collapsing your poles, the Alpine FLZ can easily transition from summer to winter by swapping the Trekking Baskets with Compactor Powder Baskets. We've also improved the joint support, making the pole's 30% stiffer. With its durable aluminum construction combined with a three-section foldable design with FlickLock Pro adjustability, the Alpine FLZ is reliable support in the mountains.
Here at Black Diamond it's all about climbing and skiing. We share the same experiences that you do on rock, ice and snow and these experiences push us to make the best gear possible for our worldwide family of climbers and skiers.
What began with a backyard anvil and a hammer has now grown into a global company with offices on three continents. Black Diamond is a company that's not just for rock climbers and skiers, but one that stands for the spirit of the sports we live, their values and goals, past, present and future. Since 1957, our innovative gear designs have set the standard in numerous areas. This is partly the result of dedication, desire and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people. It's also a product of the fact that each of us are climbers and skiers ourselves.
We're a company of users. It's who we are. We're the greatest dreamers about what could be, and the harshest of critics about what exists. Because of this, the creation of Black Diamond is a process that will never end. The company today is more committed than ever, thanks to the many people here in the U.S., at Black Diamond Europe and at Black Diamond Asia whose limitless energy and hands-on involvement have created a promising future for all climbers and skiers worldwide.
