The Petzl Summit® Evo offers technical performance for classic mountaineering in an allround and lightweight ice axe.

 

Designed for classic mountaineering, the SUMMIT EVO ice axe is the tool of choice for all types of alpine trips. Lightweight and with a waterjet-formed tube, it offers a very comfortable grip under the head of the axe. The technical design of the curved shaft provides the necessary clearance on steep, icy terrain. The forged and well-balanced head provides very good anchoring qualities. The grip of the shaft makes it a precise and efficient ice axe.

Detailed description

    Lightweight ice axe, but with enough weight in the head for good anchoring power
    Hydroformed handle for good grip at the curve, and a technical design:
    - the upper part of the shaft is curved to offer good clearance when climbing
    - the lower part is straighter and guarantees efficient penetration in snow
    Head and pick in hot-forged steel, ensuring solid anchoring:
    - thin (3 mm) pick, durable and toothed at the tip, ensuring good anchoring quality in hard snow and ice
    - pick is thicker in the middle to favor anchoring in soft snow
    - teeth on upper part of pick strengthen the hold on the ice axe in piolet-rampe mode
    - durable spike in stainless steel for very good penetration in hard snow and in piolet-canne mode
    High strength and practical aspects:
    - very durable steel adze offers a comfortable support surface, and the design of the edges allows stairs to be carved efficiently
    - tilted adze directs the axe correctly into the snow (piolet-canne usage)
    - head and spike equipped with holes for clipping a carabiner or attaching a sling
    - high-quality aluminum shaft (7075 aluminum, used in aeronautics), with anodized finish for excellent protection
    Ice axe compatible with LINKIN leash
