The Grivel Air Tech Racing Ice Axe is a great all round ice axe for glacial traverses and classic, technical alpine routes.

For when every gram counts, the Grivel Air Tech Racing ice axe trims the fat for lean, mean performance. A new version of the lightest, forged steel ice axe in the world, the Air Tech Racing is for people who want the lightest possible tool but are not willing to sacrifice the strength and durability of a genuine, forged Chromolly steel head. 

Features

  • Lithe 7075-series aluminium shaft wields easily for superb control while offering a shaft resistance of 280kg, saving weight and preserving performance
  • S.A. (Self Arrest) curvature of shaft enhances arrest capability of axe and increases spike penetration on ascent and descent
  • Asymmetrical, alloy spike plunges easily into hard-packed ice and snow
  • A great all-around axe for glacial traverses as well as classic and technical alpine routes

    Lightweight ice axe for UK winter

    Bought this at good price at end of winter. So not used yet. This is not just a compromise between a true climbing axe and a flimsy lightweight. It feels much better than that. The head is the iconic Air Tech and the shaft is specifically designed for braking, which is more important in UK than Alps as we tend to rope up less. I love the feel, but it remains to be tested.
