Description

The XBlade is a new concept in ice tool design. A one piece axe where the hardened steel blade material is also used as the shaft material to create a one piece tool balanced for technical ice climbing. Multi grip shaft design allows for fluid hand movement even on the steepest routes. Performance is not compromised by elegantly simple design. Limited quantity.

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.
