The latest (2022) piece of art from Elite Climb is the Morpho made with a composite of  Carbon fibres, Vectran and Graphene.  This is the ultimate weapon.

Carbon fibres are lightweight, flexible, have shock absorption and are warm on hands, 70% lighter than steel, 40% lighter than aluminum, high strength-to-weight ratio, high corrosion resistance, low mass, superior fatigue properties, and resistance for low temperatures.

Vectran is a high-strength polyacrylate fibre, a high-performance multifilament yarn spun from liquid crystal polymer. The fibre is five times stronger than steel and offers a unique combination of outstanding properties. It is the fibre of choice where others fail to meet performance requirements.

Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms, tightly bound in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice. Graphene is the thinnest compound known to man at one atom thick, the lightest material known (with 1 square meter weighing around 0.77 milligrams), and the most robust compound discovered between 100-300 times stronger than steel.

The Morpho HD is ultralight and is ideal for ice, mixed and drytooling. Designed by Jedrzej Jabłoński to be top of the class with outstanding efficiency, the most ergonomic shape, long reach with precision and high shaft stiffness.

Morpho HD (yellow) vs Morpho (green) vs Morpho Ice (Blue):

If you're over 80kg and prefer a dynamic style of climbing and/or stiffer tools, the HD is for you. This is essentially a heavy-duty version of the green tools. Under 70kg there's no benefit of the HD over the green.

  • Morpho HD (yellow) is made with additional carbon which is suited for 80+kg bodyweight drytooling climbers
  • Optimized for drytooling
  • Weight is balanced throughout the shaft, in opposition to the Blue Morpho which is heavier in the head for better ice penetration
  • Microspikes under the handle
  • The upper part of the shaft is covered with a special friction paint for extra grip
  • The handle and lower part of the shaft have a glossy finish for  better adhesion with tapes
  • Long pinky rest (trigger) on the second handle, in opposition to the Morpho Ice (Blue)
  • Clipping hole at the bottom
  • Made according to EN 13089 standard for ice axes (Type 2 / T-rated)
  • Weight: 328g (shaft and bolts only - no pick)
  • Pick recommended:
    • Morpho #3, #4, #5, #6 and #7
    • EliteClimb Morpho Dry
    • Krukonogi PSVD(A)
