Additional information

Pick
Banana shaped pick made from tooled steel, effective in hard packed snow. Laser machined, thin and sharpened spike, offering greater precision. Rust resistant surface treatment.
Shaft
Short and curved shaft, for ascending steep snow covered slopes. Aluminium shaft to make it lighter. Narrower mid shaft (Carving concept) allows you to get a better grip, whilst making shaft much stiffer.
Spike
No spike. Base of shaft is open with a riveted plug. Use as a walking ice axe.
Adze
Rounded adze on top gives you a better grip.

    Idéal pour le ski de rando

    Très léger et peu encombrant. Bien en main et suffisant pour le ski de rando même lorsque quelques courts passages sont en glace pure comme il y a une dizaine de jours dans la traversée des dômes de Miage avant la descente sur le glacier des Armencettes.
