The NOMIC ice axe sets the standard for ice climbing. Perfectly balanced, equipped with weights, it offers an exceptional swing. The PUR'ICE pick provides efficient placement in any type of ice. The shape of the ice axe and the double handle offer multiple grip modes, as well as stable hand switching. The grip is comfortable, thanks to the ergonomics of the handle and to the adjustable GRIPREST handrest. Featuring a minimalist hammer, the head is protected and allows the user to hammer a piton back in. Entirely modular, the ice axe can be optimized for the terrain.
Efficient placement on any type of ice:
perfect shape and balance of the ice axe provide an exceptional swing

inertia and striking quality are optimized, thanks to the MASSELOTTE weights

multiple grip modes and stable hand switching, thanks to the double handle (high and low)
