The X-Light takes the same quality forged components and profiled geometries as the X-Dream and X-All Mountain tools, but simplifies the shaft to make it the most suitable axe for low-angle terrain typical of light and fast technical ascents. Two different head configurations (adze and hammer) allow the tool to be perfectly optimized for the objective. The single-curve shaft is optimized with the angle of the pick for solid performance on alpine ice and for use as a cane. Carabiner holes at the head and spike accommodate traditional leashes or lanyards. The new 3 part handle can be assembled in the precise way that fits the terrain being climbed with an upper pommel that can be repositioned without tools. It also increases mechanical resistance to the specific stresses on each part of the handle. The hammer and adze components have been shaped for a comfortable grip and the pick does not have teeth near the shaft to further increase comfort and help limit wear and tear on gloves.
  • New handle for Winter 2017
