 Product Description

Designed for classic mountaineering, the Summit Evo ice axe is the choice for all types of alpine trips.  Lightweight and with a waterjet-formed tube, it offers a very comfortable grip under the head of the axe.  The technical design of the curved shaft provides the necessary clearance on steep, icy terrain.  The forged and well-balanced head provides very good anchoring qualities.  The grip of the shaft makes it a precise and efficient ice axe.

Features:

  • Lightweight ice axe, but with enough weight in the head for good anchoring power

  • Head and pick 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 pcik 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 acze directs the axe correctly into the snow (piolet-canne usage)
