A tool designed specifically for leashless climbing on steep ice and mixed ground. The Fusion features a lower grip that adjusts to fit different hands and gloves. The lower handle is less radically raked than some other leashless tools, allowing for a more natural grip angle. The offset curved shaft clears bulges, pillars, and other obstacles. It also creates two grips, allowing you to stack both hands on when needed — both grips have a similar angle to minimize imbalance and subsequent pick shift.
A serrated top edge on the new Fusion pick will not slip when cammed. The pick also features a steep front tooth and angle.
Steel head and pick.
Fusion pick is T-rated — thicker and stronger than B-rated picks, but displaces more ice.
No hammerhead or adze component.
