Ice Axe IDOL 60 cm (IR 0640-60)

  • A new version of IDOL with a longer shaft. 
    - The lightest 60 cm long ice axe in the world; 
    - The best production materials: titanium, aircraft-grade aluminium, carbon fibre;
      - Innovative design: its shaft and head fused as a single unit; 
    -  The carbon fibre shaft negates heat loss of the user’s hand;
    - The carbon fibre shaft prevents vibration when striking.

    IDOL was specially designed for ski -touring, free ride and any mountaineering activity where the weight plays a key role. The combination of its light weight and durability makes it a unique choice of ice axe.
    The shaft length of 60 cm also makes IDOL a classical ice axe.

    Due to optimization of its elements, IDOL, at the weight of 218 g and the length of 60 cm, is currently the lightest ice axe in the world. 
    The carbon shaft of variable cross-section is much lighter and stronger than its aluminium analogues. The carbon shaft has a monocoque structure with the head at its end.
    The modern design of IDOL’s head ensures both “European” (adze forward) and “American” (pick forward) styles of gripping. The carbon material absorbs mechanical vibration and provides thermal insulation thereby ensuring the maximum comfort to the user’s hands.
    The variable cross-section facilitates load balancing and ensures the axe can withstand extreme forces under dynamic load. 
    IDOL’s curved shape protects the user’s hands from touching the surface of the slope and does not impede when walking or making snow anchor.
     The pick with its unique shape and optimisation of the centre of mass ensures easy penetration into the hardest ice. The adze and tip are made from titanium alloy; the pick is steel and the spike is made from aircraft-grade aluminium.
