The Ergo Axe is the ultimate tool for the most difficult dry tooling pitches and the most unlikely ice columns. The ultra-curved shaft offers exceptional clearance under the head and allows a wider repertoire of movement. The adjustable ergonomic handle allows multiple grip positions and limits the risk of pick shift when switching hands. The strong curve of the handle creates an ideal angle for prolonged hanging and significantly increases power when pulling.
Th fully modular head means axe can be adapted to suit the activity. With the Masselotte pick weights, the Ergo ensures precise, effective purchase in the ice. Without the Masselottes the axe becomes considerably lighter for dry tooling. With a Marteau (available separately), the Ergo can be used to place pitons.
The interchangeable Petzl Dry pick is tapered at the tip for easy penetration, even in cold ice. The thickness makes it stronger when slotted and torqued. The hooking teeth, located on the bottom and top (for inverted positions) stabilize the ice axe.
