Z-Pole Rapid Deployment System
Speed Cone technology comes is based on the avalanche probe designâ€”a key component of Z-Poles' stiffness and fast deployment. Simply grab the grip and the first shaft section, and pull them away from each other. The pole will snap into place and lock. Each Speed Cone guides a shaft section into place, and stiffens the joint when the pole is locked.
Concealed inner cord
Single push-button release to collapse the pole
One-pull, Speed Cone deployment
Protective, flexible tube ends cover the poleâ€™s KevlarÂ® center cord when folded
