While supplies last, buy any Black Diamond trekking poles at rockcreek.com and you’ll receive a FREE Black Diamond Gizmo headlamp. You know, so you can… um… so you can find your trekking poles in the dark?
I kid, I kid. Everybody needs a headlamp, whether you’re just camping at your favorite climbing spot or you’re backpacking a section of the Appalachian Trail. The Gizmo is simple to use, its 3 LEDs help you get the best life out of your batteries, and features multiple settings… I don’t know about you, but I like to have a different amount of light for reading in my tent than I do when I’m checking to make sure there aren’t any bears around during an after-midnight bathroom run!
It’s also extremely light, weighing in at just 1.1 ounces. I’m always astonished by how many hikers or climbers don’t throw a headlamp into their pack before they head out the door; this one weighs practically nothing, and now it’s FREE, so you really have no excuse to leave your emergency light source at home.
Speaking of light, the new Black Diamond Distance trekking poles, with the aptly-named Z-Pole technology, are a getting huge amount of positive press, and for obvious reasons. Just lift a pair in one of our stores, and you’ll see what we mean.
The Black Diamond Distance trekking poles are ultralight, aluminum trekking poles that collapse into a “Z” shape (hence “Z-Poles”), a technology borrowed from avalanche probes. Weighing basically nothing (just 12.3 ounces per pair for the 120cm version), they also pack so small that you can basically take them anywhere. Fastpackers, ultrarunners and ultralight hikers who normally wouldn’t use trekking poles now have an option for technical or steep terrain!
Of course, Black Diamond makes a full line of trekking poles, so if you prefer a more classic design than the Z-pole series, you have plenty of options to choose from.
All Black Diamond trekking poles purchased at rockcreek.com qualify for the free Black Diamond Gizmo headlamp, so we won’t hold it against you if you’d rather have the Black Diamond Trail Ergo trekking poles or Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork trekking poles instead. This promotion only lasts as long as our stock of the Gizmo does, so shop now before it’s too late!
