One piece forged Chromolly steel head, hand polished, with the entire lengh of the Neo-classical pick.The modified reverse curve inclination means that the blade can be swung around naturally,providing superb placement in varied tipes of ice. The blade is reinforced by a "net" that follows the strength lines.
The Ergal 7075 light alloy shaft corresponds to CE and UIAA norms. The included Easy-Slider is a hand rest that can slide to the tail end of the shaft when hand support is needed and can also slide to the top end in walking mode; it supports the hand, protecting it from the violent blows against the wall.
An elastic sling system avoids losing the tool when limbing on rock or ice.
The jorasses 2.0 is a well balanced ice axe with a very efficient and ergonomic swing.
It is solidly built, sturdy enough for professional users "A modern guide's right hand" or if you prefer it in french:"Le vrai piolet du Guide">
