Cassin X-All Mountain Ice Tool

The X-All Mountain tool is simply the best — and we say simply in the most sincere way possible. It is not an overly complex design. It is ‘simply’ a perfectly-balanced, fine tuned, high-quality ice climbing machine. Due to its simplicity, it climbs all angles of ice with much more fluidity and consistency than other modern tools. The profiled pick and perfect head weight make it the best tool for thin ice where it penetrates aggressively with minimal impact on the ice. We have increased the size of the main pommel on the handles to provide an extra four millimeters in width and length for use with thicker gloves.For climbers who have experienced the frustrations of pick bounce, ice bashing and shoulder fatigue common with the more aggressive mixed tools or more classic style tools, we encourage you to swing the new X-All Mountains. Once you do, there will be no going back. – via Cassin 

Cassin X-Alp Axe

The X-Alp is built with the same lightweight design as the X-Ice, but features a less radical curve in the shaft to make it more versatile on lower-angled technical terrain. The X-Alp comes with a durable single-density handgrip that will hold up to whacking crampons in sticky snow. The smaller pinky ledge and long steel spike make plunging easier and the contoured adze offers a comfortable grip when using the tool as a cane. – Via Cassin

 

Cassin  X-Dream Ice Tool

X Dream Ice Tool

Aptly named, the X-Dream not only features two different picks to change the axe for ice or mixed climbing, but it also incorporates a patented adjustment system in the handle to fine tune the swing and torque even further. A quick turn of the allen bolt above the grip allows the tools to be switched between Dry and Ice positions by changing the angle of the handle in relation to the angle of the pick. In the Dry position, the handle kicks upward for a more down and out pull. The Ice position drops the handle for a more natural swing. The picks function much the same way. The Dry pick features a more aggressive downward curve at the tip while the Ice pick has a more traditional flatter beak for vertical ice. Both picks feature same angle for optimal performance on all angles of mixed and ice climbing. They are designed to provide solid sticks with minimal penetration making them the perfect choice for brittle ice and techy mixed terrain. Climbers can further refine the X-Dream with the micro-adjustable trigger finger ledge (choose from two inserts that can be flipped over to adjust the position). T-rated Shaft. B-rated Pick. – Via Cassin 

 

Cassin X-Light Adze Axe – 50cm

The newest addition to the CASSIN X-Team, 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. Three different head configurations (pick & adze, pick & hammer, pick only) allow the tool to be 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 prevent wear and tear on gloves. – Via Cassin
