Matrix Light Adze
The feather weight ice axe for alpinists! An ideal choice for climbers who prefer the reduced weight and easy handling of a simple tool that retains all the characteristics of a Grivel ice axe. Hot forged head in chromoly steel: no compromise over quality. Available with shovel or hammer. The angle in the shaft is high up as this maximizes the distance between shaft and anchorage points. The straight lower section of the shaft makes penetration easier even in hard snow. The Horn can be fitted for comfortable and efficient support. The Trigger can be fitted to distribute weight onto all fingers. The new Tech leash can be fitted.

The main climbing gear certifications are CE and UIAA--and normally the UIAA creates the rules that the CE body also supports. When possible, we try to list all the certifications the product carries.
To sell a climbing product in Europe, the device must be CE certified. There are no official requirements to sell climbing gear in the US. The UIAA certification is a voluntary process.
