Description
IDOL is the winner of the prestigious world competition ISPO Brand NEW AWARD in the category of winter hardware.

IDOL was designed for mountaineering, alpinist, ski touring, freeride and any mountaineering activity where weight plays a key role. The combination of lightweight and durability makes it a unique choice for mountain sports.
 

At 188g (50cm), it's the lightest ice axe in the world. The carbon shaft of variable cross-sections is much lighter and stronger than its aluminum analogs. The carbon shaft has a monocoque structure with the head at its end. The modern design of the head ensures both “European” (adze forward) and “American” (pick forward) styles of gripping. The carbon material absorbs mechanical vibration and provides thermal insulation, ensuring maximum warmth and comfort to the user’s hands. The variable cross-section facilitates the even distribution of load and ensures the axe can withstand extreme forces under dynamic load. The curved shape of the tool protects hands from touching the slope and does not impede when walking or making snow anchors.

The pick with its unique shape and optimization of the center mass ensures easy penetration into the hardest ice. The adze is made from titanium alloy, the pick is steel, the spike is made from aircraft-grade aluminum and the tip of the spike is titanium alloy.
