The Nomic ice axe allows the entire rock climbing repertoire to be transferred to ice.  Thanks to its adjustable ergonomic handle, it offers multiple grip positions and limits the risk of snagging when switching hands.  The modular head has two removable pick wegihts to balance the axe and propel it into the ice with an exceptional swing.  The Nomic ice axe can also be equipped with a hammer for placing pitons.


  • Ergonomic overmolded handle offers multiple grip options.  Handle length is adjustable to fit different hand and glove sizes
  • Specific shaft and handle geometry limits the risk of pick shift when switching hands between upper and lower handles
  • Fully modular head for adapting the ice axe to the activity and context:
    • equipped with Massellottes pick weights, the Ergo ensures precise, effective purchase in the ice
    • without the Massellottes pick wegihts, the Ergo becomes considerably lighter for dry tooling
    • equipped with a Marteau (optional), the Ergo can be used to place pitons
  • Interchangeable Ice pick is tapered at the tip (3 mm) for easy penetration, even in cold ice.  Its shape allows stable hooking on both ice and rock
  • Griptape on the upper handle provides better grip and thermal insulation
  • Serrated blade under the griprest for better hold coming out of steep sections in haard snow or ice
