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.
