Description

SPARK’s design was developed in partnership with Ice Rock leading athletes from the Russian ice-climbing team. Thanks to this close collaboration plus the best materials, every element of SPARK serves the goal of becoming your most reliable tool of choice during difficult ice, mixed and alpine routes.

The rubberised handle grip negates heat loss from the climber's hand.

The carbon shaft is much lighter than its aluminum analogues, making the SPARK, at 405g (without handrest, adze and hammer), the lightest ice axe in its class. Using carbon material has many advantages, and beyond the obvious property of its weight-to-load ratio, we are exploiting its property to absorb mechanical vibration and provide thermal insulation thereby ensuring maximum comfort to the user’s hands.

The shaft is designed with a variable cross-section and tapering wall thickness. This design facilitates the even distribution of load and ensures the axe can withstand extreme forces under dynamic load.

The head is made from ultra-light and super-strength aluminium alloy. Its unique shape and material properties allow it to withstand forces well beyond the quality requirements of CE/EN/UIAA. Precision production techniques allow the pick to be bolted to the head with a single screw bolt.

Come with the ice pick, optimized for ice penetration. Pick protector included.
