Grivel - Quantum Tech (Fall 2016)
The Grivel Quantum Tech is surprisingly light and loves steep to overhanging terrain. A carbon shaft provides damp, sure sticks on ice and the durable, precise pick is great for dry-tooling. Available with shovel (adze) or hammer.
- Hot forged head in chromoly steel: No compromise over quality; the internal microstructure is oriented to improve strength, and internal defects or porosity are minimized.
- Carbon composite shaft: Composite materials allow the parts of the tool subject to major pressure to be designed specifically to enhance strength and rigidity. This vital aspect is made possible by the type of reinforcement and the orientation of the carbon fibers, and the light alloy matrix transfers load to the external reinforcement in carbon fiber.
