Ice Axe Accessories - Grivel Easy Slider Leash 2.0
The Grivel Easy Slider Leash 2.0 is a hand rest that can slide right to the tail end of the shaft when hand support is needed and can also slide right to the top end in walking mode; it supports the hand, protecting it from violent blows against the wall. This is a cunning combination of a single spring leash and a sliding hand rest and is ideal for an alpine axe where you need to alternate reguarly between walking mode and climbing mode.
Basically you get the advantages of a leashless axe system without any of the disadvantages i.e. with the slider at the top of the shaft you can plunge the axe. It comes with a single spring leash and Rotor Carabiner allowing for maximum freedom of movement.
The Easy Slider fits the majority of Grivel axes such as the Airtech Evolution, Munro and Matirx Light. With other make of axes, please check first as this leash may not be suitable.
