Sometimes mountaineering axes just won’t cut it. If you need a proper ice tool for a route, check out the Quantum Tech from Grivel. They are an ultralight combination of aerospace grade composite shafts and hot-forged chromoly steel heads. No compromises were made on the Quantum Tech; extra care was taken in the orientation and reinforcement of the carbon fibers that make up the shaft. Hot-forging the heads improves the internal microstructure to achive maximum strength from the alloy. The axes are finished with an efficient hand-support and Tungsten Carbide spike. Available with and adze or hammer, the Quantum Tech is the ultimate tool for technical routes.
