Head: One-piece forged Chromoly steel, hand-polished with teeth the entire length of the pick and a Neo-Classical blade. The modified reverse-curve inclination means the blade can be swung naturally and offers superb anchorage in varied types of ice; the sharp change of angle near the tip allows easy removal of the blade from even the deepest placements.

The flat, "button-hole" lets you sling the wrist-leash through the pick and keep the shaft clean for driving into hard snow.
Shaft construction: Ergal 7075 light alloy corresponding to DIN and UIAA norms; two piece construction (with the lower section being a smaller circumference) allows us to make the natural rubber grip flush with the upper shaft. Leash hole in the shaft, technical wristleash.
Spike: Stamped Chromoly steel - painted
