Description

The new version of the famous Air Tech axe, the Grivel Air Tech Evo With Easyslider Ice Axe has a dependable head that is hot forged from a single piece of steel which has become an established alpine classic. The new shaft's gentle curve just below the head gives greater clearance and makes anchoring easier on any sort of terrain, whilst the lower straight part of the shaft will penetrate into snow with little effort. Included with the Easy Slider is the Spring Leash system connected to the hand rest that slides to the top of the shaft when sunk in snow or to the bottom to support hand in traction. The most advanced axe technology, all in under 500 grams!

Great Ice axe with a nice device, Easyslider
March 31, 2013

I have been to Mt. Washington last weekend and I tested my recent purchase from Altrec, Girvel Air tech Evo with Easyslider. The steep section on Lion Head Trail at Mt. Washington is mostly 40% -60% degree and about 80% at steepest for 50 yard. I found that the rubber grip on the shaft is very comfy and easyslider very useful. I used to use BD Ravine Pro with a regular leash and alway suffered from cold hands. In steep sections I grab the shaft of the axe, hands get easily cold and tend to lose good grip after a whle. With a regular leash it is tedius every time you turn left or right. This Givel Air Tech Evo has rubber grip at the end of the shaft (no cold hand) and Easyslider for easy switching hand and extra relief against slip on hand.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
