Dark Machine X


Ultimate technical ice axe which combines the most advanced technologies and materials into a modern tool, destined for great performances.

Designed for extreme ice climbing and dry tooling, this aggressive technical ice axe has a G-bone carbon composite shaft and full carbon handle that ensure lightness and, at the same time, extreme toughness and durability.
Very light at only 495 grams, their geometry offers a higher balance point, that allows a much better swing.
The head is compatible with VARIO System, an innovative light and modular system for interchangeable blades and accessories: naked, mini-hammer, hammer and adze. The VARIO System allows to choose between different blade construction technologies (hot forged or laser cut) and to perform the best combination to front any type of terrain with great all around performances.
