When aluminium may not cut it but steel seems like overkill try a hybrid. The Corsa Nanotech uses innovative Sandvik Nanoflex® steel alloy (20% lighter than normal steel and up to 60% stronger) attachments on the pick and spike to drastically increase the strength and durability of these points without significantly increasing the weight.
Well-suited for classic alpinism but thanks to the steel attachments it can also be used on icy and hard snow where the properties of steel become desirable. 7075 aluminum alloy single-curve bent shaft with the aggressive Sandvik Nanoflex spike offers a maximum range of comfortable positions for posting and anchoring.
Sandvik Nanoflex offers exceptional strength for the most demanding requirements. Its advanced material structure is based on nanotechnology which results in enhanced mechanical properties for improved performance. Benefits for the user: Extreme strength for minium weight - Superior toughness for enhanced durability - Excellent robustness for improved safety.
Superb trekking axe the slightly curved shaft is more comfortable when self arresting and there are two grippy patches at the base of the shaft that ensure a non-slip grip.
