The Ride is an ultra-light and compact ice axe that can fit in just about every rucksack thanks to it's short 45cm length. Perfect for ski tours and freeriding. 

Petzl says:

Ultra-light and very compact, the RIDE ice axe go's everywhere with you for ski touring or glacier travel, without weighing you down. Solid placements thanks to the all-steel head, a pick tapered to 3 mm and a bent shaft.

Petzl's Ride Ice Axe provides a perfect balance between stability and low weight. Designed specifically to require the minimum amount of effort to carry with you when touring or freeriding through glacial terrain. The steel head has the same performance as a traditional ice axe head, and penetrates ice very well, while the ergonomic shape of the shaft makes for easy & comfortable handling.

The pick is tapered to 3mm for better penetration in ice and the aluminium shaft is a compact 45cm designed to fit inside a pack for improved safety and discretion. Perfect for trips where every gram counts.

Review Summary - 5 out of 5 based on 1 rating.

Used this for a trip along the Continental Divide-Glacier Park, Tetons, Wind River Range hiking and cycle touring. It was compact and easy to store on bike or in pack. Nearly no weight but the pick penetrated superbly on steep compact snow. Used in combo with the Petzl Lepoard crampons. I do wish it was an inch longer but functioned perfect.
