Petzl's Sum'tec Hammer Ice Axe is a compromise between a classic mountaineering ice axe and an ice climbing axe, the SUMTEC is a versatile, lightweight, technical ice axe. It is easy to use in piolet canne mode with its stainless steel spike and its slightly curved shaft. In climbing mode, the ALPIX pick (forged into banana shape) and the new TRIGREST handrest (adjustable without tools) ensure the efficiency required for technical passages, as well as bergschrunds, ice gullies, etc. Available in adze or hammer versions.
With its curved shaft, the Petzl Sum'Tec is the logical evolution of the classic mountaineering axe.
