The Cobra is a standard axe for hard ice leads and bold alpine routes. The shape of the Cobra's lightweight carbon fibre shaft has been redesigned this year to give more clearance without sacrificing balance or axis rotation. The weight also comes down with the new shaft by over 100 grams. The carbon fibre shaft provides vibration-free placements with minimal flex. The optional integrated Android Leash can be added for hard ice climbing. Standard equipment includes the Laser pick and the handle Fang and Strike are removeable.
