Unsurpassed for lightness, the Air Tech Racing ice axe offers the strength of any other "B" rated ice axe with a steel head, while delivering the ultimate in weight reduction. Featuring a drop forged chromoly-steel pick and a wide shovel, the Air Tech Racing performs when in use, and when stowed on the pack. A classic, negatively curved pick is optimal for self arresting, and the spike allows use of the axe as a third point of contact on steep slopes. Meets the UIAA "B" rating for ice tools.
