When your pushing the standard on hard ice and mixed routes, the Petzl Nomic Ice Tool adds fluidity, grace, and security as it elevates your success. With three grip positions that accommodate different hand sizes and grasping options, the pick is designed to match the geometry of the ergonomic handle. This provides supreme holding power at the pick teeth, and minimizes pick shift when changing a hand position on a crux move. At only 1 lb. 4oz., weight is engineered toward the pick tip to maximize swing efficiency, striking power, and precise placement. Adjustable head weights focus impact for optimum pick penetration.
The best tool to date...

The Nomics are the latest and best evolution of the vertical ice tool. From steep, candleobra ice to delicate mixed climbing, the Nomics seem to move in unison with your body. Extension of the hand? Possibly. I've never felt as secure on mixed terrain with any other tool.

Love this tool! Fits with my swing perfect, and sticks great! I love the handle too. This has bumped the 'viper' out of my pack!
