The Matrix Tech Adze is officially retired.You've found a page of history! The Matrix Tech Adze is no longer produced by Grivel and it is not available to buy from major online retailers. You can still check out all the specs and claim your ownership.
Matrix Tech Adze
An ideal choice for climbers who prefer the reduced weight and easy handling of an extremely technical 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 shaft has a double angulation increasing the head’s opening and helping the wrist hold the load. Very efficient hand support with a little point in Tungsten Carbide for safety. The Trigger can be fitted to distribute weight onto all fingers. The Tech Leash can also be added.

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.
