Product Info

Designed for classic mountaineering, the SUMMIT EVO ice axe is the tool of choice for all types of alpine trips. Lightweight and with a waterjet-formed tube, it offers a very comfortable grip under the head of the axe. The technical design of the curved shaft provides the necessary clearance on steep, icy terrain. The forged and well-balanced head provides very good anchoring qualities. The grip of the shaft makes it a precise and efficient ice axe.

Key Features
  • Lightweight ice axe, but with enough weight in the head for good anchoring power.
  • Hydroformed handle for good grip at the curve, and a technical design:
    • The upper part of the shaft is curved to offer good clearance when climbing.
    • The lower part is straighter and guarantees efficient penetration in snow.
  • Head and pick in hot-forged steel, ensuring solid anchoring:
    • Thin (3 mm) pick, durable and toothed at the tip, ensuring good anchoring quality in hard snow and ice.
    • Pick is thicker in the middle to favor anchoring in soft snow.
    • Teeth on upper part of pick strengthen the hold on the ice axe in piolet-rampe mode.
    • Durable spike in stainless steel for very good penetration in hard snow and in piolet-canne mode.
  • High strength and practical aspects:
    • Very durable steel adze offers a comfortable support surface, and the design of the edges allows stairs to be carved efficiently.
    • Tilted adze directs the axe correctly into the snow (piolet-canne usage).
    • Head and spike equipped with holes for clipping a carabiner or attaching a sling.
    • High-quality aluminum shaft (7075 aluminum, used in aeronautics), with anodized finish for excellent protection.
  • Ice axe compatible with LINKIN leash.
