Ultra-light screw with aluminium tube and steel teeth - ideal for mountaineering and ski-touring. Easy to start due to the shape of the teeth and easier and faster to wind due to the shape of the pull out handle. The major (in fact the only) change between this and the previous version is that the new model has three teeth rather than four which is said to improve the bite and so make them easier to place.

  • Ultra-light aluminium tube for greater comfort, ideal for mountaineering.
  • Starting in the ice facilitated by the optimised shape of the steel teeth.
  • Optimal shape of the tri-toothed drill improves the bite into ice.
  • Integrated flexible crank provides an optimised lever, making it easier and faster to screw in.
  • Colour-coding facilitates identifying the length of a screw.
  • Smaller hanger to facilitate screwing into sculpted ice.
  • Easier sharpening with the drill's patented sharpening reserve.
  • Supplied with a protective cap.

Materials: steel drill/teeth, anodised aluminium tube, aluminium hanger.

Certifications: CE EN 568, UIAA 151.

NB We have found in use that these screws tend to clog up more than steel screws, particularly in cold conditions, so while they are great for lightening your rack, it's probably still worth carrying steel screws for those strenuous one handed placements and save the alloy ones for situations where you are in balance. We suspect this is due to the nature of the metal rather than any fault in the design of the screw though we have recently received this explanation from Petzl: "Something important to remember with aluminium ice screws is that the tube is thicker causing higher resistance and this can in certain situations, such as wet, or very hard ice, lead to a less good screwing performance (sic). To avoid any problems, we do recommend to always take some steel ice screws as well."
