Ice axe for technical mountaineering and ice climbing

The Quark is a multipurpose ice axe, designed primarily for technical mountaineering and for ice climbing. The Quark can adapt to any situation thanks to its modular construction.

The Quark is easy to use, its balance and its Ice pick allow solid placements on any type of ice. Thanks to the clearance under the head and to the shape of the pick hooking is more efficient. The GRIPREST and the TRIGREST hand rest ensure a comfortable but powerful grip.


  • Structure is entirely modular making it easy to adapt and modify
  • The Quark weighs only 460g, without accessories, making it an ultra-high performance ice axe for snow couloirs.
  • Maximum weight of 550g with hand rests fitted
  • Interchangeable Ice pick is tapered at the tip for easy penetration, even in cold ice. Its shape gives stable hooking on both ice and rock
  • Ergonomic over-molded handle provides a good grip and insulation from the cold.
  • Carabiner hole loacted under the GRIPREST
  • Comfortable in either hand.
