The NOMIC ice axe sets the standard for ice climbing. Perfectly balanced and equipped with weights, it provides an exceptional swing. Its PUR’ICE pick allows efficient placement in a variety of types of ice. The shape and double handle offer multiple grip modes, as well as stable hand switching. The grip is comfortable, with an ergonomic handle and adjustable GRIPREST handrest. Featuring a minimalist hammer, the head is protected and allows the user to hammer a piton back in. Entirely modular, the ice axe can be optimized according to the terrain.
Efficient placement on a variety of types of ice: - Perfect shape and balance of the ice axe provide an exceptional swing - The curve under the head makes hooking easier - PUR’ICE pick is tapered at the tip (3 mm), offering excellent penetration in different types of ice, including hard ice; the pick is toothed on the upper side to offer stable support when turned upside-down - Inertia and striking quality are optimized with MASSELOTTES weights
Comfortable grip, designed for technical ice climbing: - Double handle (high and low) offers multiple grip modes and stable hand switching - Lower handle is angled to protect the hand from contact with the ice and to provide more comfort when suspended - Upper handle is overmolded and bi-material, offering excellent grip and insulation from the cold - Hydroformed shaft provides optimal grip in the middle of the shaft
