£117.00
A modern lightweight technical ice axe for classic mountaineering. A curved shaft for steeper terrain with a hot forged steel head
Designed for classic mountaineering, the Summit Evo ice axe is the tool of 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
  • Hydroformed handle for good grip at the curve, and a technical design:
    - the upper part of the shaft is curved to offer good clearance when climbing
    - the lower part is straighter and guarantees efficient penetration in snow
  • Head and pick in hot-forged steel, ensuring solid anchoring:
    - thin (3 mm) pick, durable and toothed at the tip, ensuring good anchoring quality in hard snow and ice

    - durable spike in stainless steel for very good penetration in hard snow and in piolet-canne mode
  • High strength and practical aspects:
