The logical evolution of the classic mountaineering ice axe, the SUM'TEC combines the qualities of a technical mountaineering ice axe - thanks to its curved shaft - and a classic mountaineering ice axe. Light and versatile, this ice axe has an adjustable hand rest and an interchangeable pick.
The TRIGREST hand rest improves grip efficiency. Its position can be adjusted as needed, without tools - in the lower position, it improves grip and facilitates progression in steep sections; in the upper position, it allows the shaft to easily penetrate the snow.
Ice axe designed for mountaineers looking to reduce weight (485 g for 52 cm)
ALPIX curved pick is interchangeable and adapted to difficult alpine climbing
Shaft is made of extruded, ultra-light aluminum with a curved upper section. This shape provides good clearance during ice climbing or in the snow and helps avoid impacts to the hands.

Pick is quickly and securely replaced with the unique screw lock system
Wide oval holes in the head and in the spike facilitate clipping a carabiner
Tilted adze directs the axe correctly into the snow (piolet-canne usage)
