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.

    léger et agréable

    Piolet de ski-rando conforme à la description, petit et léger mais très bonne prise en main avec manche galbé et le rétrécissement du manche.

    tres bon piolet super leger

    super piolet ultra leger facile a glisser dans un sac a dos
    jolie forme et bonne lame qui ancre bien
    seul petit default serrait le bas du manche un peu glissant un petit grip serrait le bienvenu
    j'ai rajoute une petite gachette(type cascade de glace) pour remedier a ce probleme qui coulisse sur le manche et qui ce bloque avec l'oeillet en bas du manche
    du coup il est top comme ca
    attention c'est un piolet ultra light donc il doit servir dans son cadre d'utilisation pour le ski alpinisme freeride etc
    dans son domaine d'utilisation c'est un excellent produit
    d'ailleur je lui ai fait bonne pub dans mon club
