With its curved shaft, the Petzl Sum’Tec Ice Axe is the logical evolution of the classic climbing axe.
Ideal for mountaineers having a look to attenuate weight (485 g for 52 cm). Light and versatile, this ice axe has an adjustable hand rest and an interchangeable pick. Trigrest hand rest improves grip efficiency and can also be adjusted without tools.
Shaft is made of extruded, ultralight aluminum with a curved upper section. Curved upper component to shaft provides good clearance right through ice hiking or within the snow and helps keep away from impacts to the hands. The pick (3.5 mm) is designed for efficient penetration into ice and guarantees solid hooking on rock.
Pick is quickly and securely replaced with the unique screw-lock system. Wide oval holes within the head and within the spike facilitate clipping a carabiner. Stainless steel spike ensures superb grip on rock.
Weight: 495 g/17.5 oz. (52 cm).
