A compromise between a classic mountaineering ice axe and an ice climbing axe, the SUM’TEC from Petzl is a versatile, lightweight yet technical ice axe that is easy to use in piolet-canne mode with its stainless steel spike and its slightly curved shaft. In piolet-traction (facing in), the ALPIX pick (forged into banana shape) and the new TRIGREST hand rest (adjustable without tools) ensure the efficiency required for technical passages, as well as bergschrunds, ice gullies... Available in adze or hammer versions.

Great tool helps a lot in hard moutain and ice terrain
Excellent tool. Used for technical alpinism. Good blade (same like Nomic / Quark). Trigrest very useful and well done. T certification for both shaft/blade.
Arrived on time (4-th w/day) but unfortunately packaging could've been better.
