The DMM Cirque Axe is a classically styled mountaineering or winter walking axe constructed using modern fabrics and techniques. Both the pick and the shaft are T rated (technical) ensuring the ultimate in strength, most general mountaineering and walking axes are B rated (basic). Though the down side to this is that they are quite heavy for this style of axe.
The handle has a silicon cover to ensure a solid grip is maintained and also includes double rivets where it is joined to the main shaft increasing strength. The shaft has a slight curve but can be easily plunged into soft snow. With holes large enough at either end for carabiners you have a choice how leashes may be fitted, they also enable the Cirque to be used when constructing a belay. The Cirque comes with a DMM Standard leash, their basic adjustable leash ensuring you don't loose your Cirque.
