About Edelrid Riot Adze Ice Axe - 50cm
Closeouts. Edelrid's Riot Adze ice axe is perfect for basic, all-around ice climbing and works especially well on steeper ascents. The lighter design requires less strength and a more delicate swing, which makes the Riot ideal for women climbers. The modular construction with interchangeable heads, picks, weights and handle ensures adaptability to all routes.

Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Javier from Mexico on Sunday, June 4, 2017This is one of the best technical ice axes I have ever tried, it has a perfect balance for the swing at the ice. I recomendaciones it for technical mountaineering and some moderate ice/mixed climbing. Totally recommended if you want to evolve from classic to technical mountaineering and the price is amazing.

“What is the rating of this ice tool?
I can see from the picture that the pick has a T stamped on it (and is therefore T-rated / type 2), but what about the shaft? Also T-rated, or B-rated?”
From website OutdoorGearLab; "The B (basic) and T (technical) ratings are based on tests to the shaft and pick. B rating is tested to 280kg on an ice axe's pick and shaft and a T rating is 400kg on its pick and shaft. For an axe to be T rated it must have both a T rated pick and shaft. If it only gets a T rating in one category, then it gets the B rating overall. Some axes, especially those with modular picks, will show a rating on both the shaft and their pick. This is because your axe could be B or T rated depending on your pick selection." Hope this helps.
