This tool features the same balance, clearance and feel of Black Diamond's event-winning Cobra, but has a narrower, hourglass grip for smaller hands.
New Laser pick has a thinner taper and lower-volume tip that penetrates easily, with less displacement of ice
"Minor axis" aluminum shaft orientation springs from the original all around COBRA design that adds "liveliness" to each "stick" as well as dampening the impact of each swing.
Aluminum shaft is lightweight yet strong, and bent to provide a natural, solid swing; dampens rebound and vibration as the pick enters the ice
Torsionally-balanced design for controlled swings and less wobble on dicey tip hooks
Curved shaft has increased head and shaft clearance for more security on placements, less wobble on dicey tip hooks and greater torsional control
Hammer head component drives ice pitons and clears loose ice for solid anchor placement
Molded, hourglass grip is easy to grasp; contoured pinkie-rest supports the hand, reducing fatigue and adding control
Available "Fang" for leashless climbing and Viper Android Leash (pictured) for integrated leash design. Also accepts standard leash designs.
