Dark Machine X - Total Dry Vario
The ultimate technical tool for extreme ice climbing and dry tooling
The Grivel Dark Machine X is the ultimate technical ice axe which combines the most advanced technologies and materials into a modern tool, destined for great performances.
Designed for extreme ice climbing and dry tooling, this aggressive technical ice axe has a G-bone carbon composite shaft and full carbon handle that ensure lightness and, at the same time, extreme toughness and durability. Very light at only 495 grams, its geometry offers a higher balance point that allows a much better swing.
The head is compatible with the Grivel VARIO System, an innovative light and modular system for interchangeable blades and accessories: naked, mini-hammer, hammer and adze (each sold separately). The VARIO System allows to choose between different blade construction technologies (each sold separately) to dial in the best combination for any type of terrain. This version comes equipped with the Total Dry Vario blade, designed for dry tooling.
