Ice axe for alpine use. The moderate curve makes it still possible to plunge the shaft deep in the snow while still saving your knuckles during swinging. One of the lightest allround tools on the market with the Charlet Petzl Aztar.

Hammer and adze versions available. Picks and hammer/adze parts are interchangeable with other axes from the X-series. The axe comes with a handleash.

tommilight and good

Voted 5/5

Tested them the last winter, really light but strong tools, ideal for ice routes, North Faces and mixed climbing. Like them very much
