Designed for classic mountaineering, the Summit Evo Axe is the tool of choice for all types of alpine trips. It is lightweight, but with enough weight in the head for good anchoring power. The upper part of the aluminium alloy shaft is curved to offer good clearance when climbing while the lower part is straighter and guarantees efficient penetration in snow.
The head and pick are made from hot-forged steel, ensuring solid anchoring. The tip of the pick is thin and toothed to ensure good anchoring quality in hard snow and ice. Towards the middle the pick is thicker to favour anchoring in soft snow. Teeth on the upper part of the pick strengthen the hold on the ice axe in piolet-rampe mode. The spike is stainless steel for very good penetration in hard snow and in piolet-canne mode. A very durable steel adze offers a comfortable support surface, and the design of the edges allows stairs to be carved efficiently.
