When the going gets steep, the Ride ice-axe from Petzl steps up to answer the call. Purpose-built for steep skiing, the Ride has a steel head, curved shaft, and a pick tapered to 3mm. These features ensure that you get a placement you can count on when you’re picking or plunging. The Petzl Ride axe is durable enough for daily ski mountaineering yet still impressively light. It will be your go-to skimo axe for years.

  • Steel head offers the same performance as a classic axe.
  • Machined grip and curved shaft offer improved handling and self-arrest performance.
  • Bright orange color is eye catching so everyone knows you're cool enough to need an axe.
  • Compact enough to fit inside a pack which reduces chance of injury if you run out of cool points on the descent.
  • CE certified.

by Eric (downright abused product)
Simple and light. I got rid of my Camp Nano as soon as I had one day with this. It's a touch heavier but the resin plug keeps it from filling with snow so it's lighter in that regard. The curve is nice and the resin head makes it nicer to carry with thin gloves. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a pinkie rest like the Sum-tec but I stole one off my Quarks and it's good to go. Held up to a winter in Chamonix and spring on the Coast just fine so seems bomber in that regard. Possibly slightly too short for some skimo races (PDG?)?
