Winter mountaineering demands a tool that can handle the shift between staying safe on snow slopes to actually climbing steeper ground when required.

The Cirque is a lightweight, yet extremely strong axe designed specifically for these scenarios. The shaft has enough of a curve to give clearance for your knuckles and ease of placement around bulges, but is not so radical that it can't be easily plunged into snow.

It has a gently curved pick; just drooped enough to give security when the gully line steepens or you have to overcome a cornice exit, but also gentle enough that the thing doesn’t get torn from your hands when you have to do an ice axe brake.

Curved shaft brilliant, nice length, good price
Slightly heavier than some. Whilst you would normally use with gloves worth noting top of shaft a bit uncomfortable to hold in bare hand or with thin gloves

For a technical ice axe, the Cirque offers excellent value for money. It's a great hybrid axe to have. It works as a normal ice axe for regular walking, but has "hidden" reserves when you need them.
Maybe the rubber grip, I'm not sure how durable it is.

Light, easy to carry when not in use and the correct length for people of various heights to use when traversing snowy, icy slopes.
Wish it had come with a protective bag or cover when stored during the summer months.
Don't buy this if you're after an ice axe.
