- New handle for Winter 2017
- Optimized pick angle and tooth configuration climbs all angles of ice remarkably well
- Hot-forged aluminum alloy head allows for 2 configurations: pick & adze and pick & hammer
- 3 part handle can be optimized for different conditions and hand size
- Interchangeable steel spike is large enough to stick on low angle glacier ice and has a hole large enough to clip a carabiner for use with lanyards
The X-All Mountain ice tool came onto the scene in 2010 and changed expectations about how tools should swing and penetrate ice. Everything about the X-All Mountain makes it easier to get single-swing sticks and the more technical the ice, the more it outperforms the competition. With a tweak in the design for 2017, we have made a great thing even greater. The new handle is now 3 parts that can be assembled in the precise way that fits the terrain being climbed and allows the climber to fine-tune the position of the upper pommel. It also increases mechanical resistance to the specific stresses on each part of the handle. Everything else about the geometry, balance and weight remain the same.

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.
