The Black Diamond Swift is a lightweight and versatile mountaineering axe with a modern and technical design. Its available in three lengths of 50, 57 or 64cm.
The shaft is constructed from a single piece of aluminium tubing which is plugged and reinforced at the bottom end to improve performance when plunging in softer snow. The FlickLock grip is adjustable, ideal for varying terrian. The head is a one piece stainless steel casting which allows for a low profile connection to the shaft letting your fingers sit more comfortably when holding the head than on many axes. This makes a big difference to the feel of the axe in your hand, especially when spending hour after hour plunging in softer snow. With the shaft being T rated the axe is also safe to be used for a belay.
