Grivel - Air Tech Carbon with Easy Slider Leash (Fall 2016)
The huge success of the Air Tech Evo has encouraged Grivel to create the perfect complement: an Air Tech with a Carbon Composite shaft. The most advanced ice axe technology all in 473 grams! This is the new version of the famous Air Tech ice axe. The head, hot forged in a single piece of steel, has become an established alpine classic. This new shaft has a gentle curve just below the head, giving greater clearance and making anchoring easier on any sort of terrain. The shaft is gloved with a natural rubber grip.
Includes the Easy Slider Leash: a hand rest that can slide right to the tail end of the shaft when hand support is needed and can also slide right to the top end in walking mode; it supports the hand, protecting it from violent blows against the wall. An elastic sling system avoid losing tools when climbing on rock or ice.
