The Aero Lite Ice Screw from Blue Ice is a welcomed addition to any ski mountaineer's rack. Designed in the heart of Chamonix, these screws are some of the lightest ice screw on the market. A 13cm Aero Lite is significantly lighter than it's Petzl Laser Speed Light counterpart. How is that possible? Both the shaft and hanger have been forged out of aluminum while the crank implements an innovative wire design. The tip, however, is a three-tooth design made from steel that allows for precise bite and placement. The Aero Lite Ice Screw from Blue Ice is be best suited for ski mountaineers who need to shed grams on routes like the Grand Teton's Ford Stetner or Liberty Ridge on Mount Rainier.
- Color coding corresponds to screw length.
