The X-Light features the same sleek designs and quality forged components as the popular X-Dream, but with a shaft that makes it the most suitable axe for low-angle terrain typical of light and fast technical ascents. Two different head configurations (pick & adze and pick & hammer) allow the tool to be perfectly optimized for the objective. The single-curve shaft is optimized with the angle of the pick for solid performance on technical ice and for use as a cane. Carabiner holes at the head and spike accommodate traditional leashes or lanyards. For steep ice climbing, it is possible to change the standard X-Alp grip with the X-Dry grip and spike. The X-Trigger Fast pommel (included) is adjustable without tools. The hammer and adze components have been shaped for a comfortable grip and the pick does not have teeth near the shaft to further increase comfort and help limit wear and tear on gloves.
