Additional information

Pick
Banana shaped pick made from tooled steel, effective on hard packed snow and ice. Laser machined; sharpened teeth and spike give you greater precision. Rust resistant surface treatment. Quickly interchangeable pick, thanks to male/female screw fitting system, that screws and unscrews using ixe ace pick. Type 1 pick.
Shaft
Short curved shaft, perfectly shaped for climbing steep slopes. Aluminium shaft to favour low weight. Narrower mid shaft (Carving concept) allows you to get a better grip, whilst making shaft much stiffer. Type 2 Shaft.
Handle
Handle with highly adhesive rubber for using as an ice tool. Protruding hand rest on lower part of shaft for resting on steep ice climbs. Detachable trigger supplied with ixe ace for index finger grip (attached to handle with a drywall screw).
Spike
Steel spike when using as a walking ice axe. Rust resistant surface treatment.
Aluminium insert
Ice axe supplied without adze or hammer but with aluminium insert to make it as lightweight as possible. Can easily be replaced by an adze or a hammer.

    Bon produit

    J'utilise ce piolet depuis bientôt deux ans en alpinisme et un peu en cascade. J'en suis très content. Il est polyvalent, léger, et son manche étroit convient à mes mains fines.
    Je n'ai pas eu à l'utiliser en glace dure, et n'ai pas rencontré de problèmes de désencrage...
    Je considère sa relative légèreté comme un atout.

    Bon

    Testé en goulotte et en cascade de glace. Pas de problème. Meilleur prix du marché. Piolet très léger, un des plus légers du marché il me semble. Par conséquent il est EXCLUSIVEMENT réservé à ceux qui cherche un ancrage en douceur. Lorsque la glace est très dur il faut avoir un bon swing pour ancrer. Je sais que beaucoup de gens préfèrent avoir de la masse pour frapper. Dans ce cas passez votre chemin (ou à la limite testez la version marteau qui ajoute un peu de poids). On regrettera seulement l'impossibilité d'ajouter des masselottes pour justement ajouter un peu de poids à la tête.
