Air Tech Racing has a CE-shaft resistance of 280 Kg (617 lbs) so it's not a belay climbing axe, neither an ice axe due to the lightness. Its an axe designed for easy climbs and classical alpinism (also for ski mountaneering). Is not the lighter axe in the world but one of the most and the lightest forged steel axe. Its spike is made of light alloy and is asymmetrical, so don't expect to stick into the ice. Neither the classic blade can be thrust into ice due to the lightness. Its CE approved EN 13089 and can be completed by a rubber ring for holding the strap (not seen in the photo), a strap, a rubber cover to avoid cold hands (Cappuccino) and a protecting rubber for the spike called Big Foot (not necessary). Prices are those in Spain.
