Item #PTZ-0553
Details

It is lightweight and offers good anchoring performance of both the head and the spike; it is curved to offer necessary clearance for steep ice; it can be used in piolet-canne or piolet-rampe mode as well as in piolet-traction mode on short, steep sections.

Description

  • Lightweight ice axe, but with enough weight in the head for good anchoring power
  • Shaft ergonomics: 
    - the upper part of the shaft is curved to offer good clearance when climbing 
    - the lower part is straighter and guarantees efficient penetration in snow
  • Pick and adze in hot-forged steel, ensuring solid anchoring:
    - pick is thin (3 mm) and toothed at the tip, ensuring good anchoring qualities in hard snow and ice
    - pick is thicker in the middle to favor anchoring in soft snow 
    - teeth on upper part of pick strengthen the hold on the ice axe in piolet-rampe mode
    - durable spike in stainless steel for very good penetration in hard snow and in piolet-canne mode
  • High strength and practical aspects:
    - very durable steel adze offers a comfortable support surface, and the design of the edges allows stairs to be carved efficiently
    - tilted adze directs the axe correctly into the snow (piolet-canne usage)
    - head and spike equipped with holes for clipping a carabiner or attaching a sling
    - high-quality aluminum shaft (7075 aluminum, used in aeronautics), with anodized finish for excellent protection
    -handle is cut into the adze to create a better grip
  • Ice axe compatible with LINKIN leash
