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 screws 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 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.
  • Large outer diameter for secure placements.
  • Features a foldable stainless steel wire crank.
  • Positively textured grip on the crank allows for maximum crankage.

Question from gotnoname
 
Anyone tried these yet? Looks awesome but it also uses two wires for the gate/crank like Black diamond. And I hear with BD they're pretty weak and breaks easily

Hi Gotnoname!

These screws are new to the market as of this winter, so I have not had the opportunity to get them into ice. However, the three tooth design, weight, and screw diameter are all pretty exciting! Seeing as this is a new product, there is no use history to rely on for assessment of durability. That being said, the crank arm is made of steel, which should hold up to punishment.
