BANDIT

BANDIT / RK003 - with hammer
BANDIT / RK004 - with adze
Versatile ice axe for a wide range of use

 

  • given its modular design, the ice axe can be adapted to a particular ascent
  • especially suitable for demanding technical mountaineering and ice climbing
  • bent shaft makes hooking in steep ice or rock easy while creating an optimum
    grip angle
  • hot forged head allows use of adze/hammer and choice of ICE or DRY pick
    (for demanding mixed climbing the ice axe can be used without adze/hammer)
  • head shape is designed so that it can be jammed into the cracks and to provide support for climbing in soft snow
  • the weight of the head is concentrated in the trajectory of the swing making penetration into hard ice as easy as possible
  • possible to connect a carabiner to the head or hang the ice axe on PORTER
  • ergonomically shaped handle is made of dual-density plastic for thermal
    insulation and safe grip
  • a carabiner or BUNGEE tether may be attached to the spike
  • BOXER protects fingers against injury and getting drenched and enables
    leashless climbing; RHINO hook is designed for higher grip in demanding ice/mixed climbing or, in contrast, in climbing snow slopes (you may remove both accessories and get a light ice axe for classic technical mountaineering)
  • included with ICE pick and removable extra pick weights MASS for stronger swing (to improve pick penetration into the hardest ice)
