Description

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.

  • Hydroformed handle for good grip at the curve, and a technical design
  • Upper part of the shaft is curved to offer good clearance when climbing
  • Lower part of the shaft is straighter and guarantees efficient penetration in snow
  • Thin (3mm) pick, durable and toothed at the tip, ensuring good anchoring quality in hard snow and ice
  • Pick is thicker in the middle to favour anchoring in soft snow
  • Teeth on upper part of pick 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
  • Very durable steel adze offers a comfortable support surface, and the design of the edges allows stairs to be carved efficiently
