Description

The Carbon Tech Machine is designed for all day ice to alpine mixed lines to single pitch pillars, you need a tool that can handle any type of terrain with great all around performance. The Tech Machine's geometry offers great swings from steep caudiflower'd ice to calf destroying lower angle romps. An aggressive pick angle with a long first tooth allows secure hooking on edges and hot forging gives great durability while torquing in cracks on mixed terrain. The Carbon Tech Machine features a dual density handle with multiple grip options, allowing you to shake out when pumped or choke up to get an extended reach. It's Cyclops eye on the head of the axe allows for easy racking on ice clippers, carabiners or other racking methods. The Carbon Tech Machine comes standard with the ICE blade and accepts the optional MIX blade.

Certification

Certifications

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.

The absolutely brilliant new Tech Machine Ice Axes from Grivel are, well, brilliant. We've passed them round 5 different testers so far this season and everyone has come back with a resoundingly positive response. These axes work, and they work well.
