With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

DMM Switch Compact Ice Axe Description

  • Brand : DMM
  • Season : Perennial
  • Code : 5012037
  • Weight : 0KG
  • Ice Axes - Climbing - DMM Switch Compact Ice Axe

    The DMM Switch sets new standards for technical climbing in any terrain – ice, mixed or alpine. The Switch is a true, leashless all rounder, which blends great design and DMM's well-known bombproof construction. The 'T Rated Integrity Construction' means that all of the components are T Rated, from the pick, through the shaft, to the clip in point at the base of the handle. The handle itself  is hot forged from a single piece of alloy with a grippy and highly insulating clear plastic coating. 

    If swinging around on a marginal pick placement with both hands matched, gunning for the next sketchy hook is your thing, then look no further, likewise, if quick enchainements in the Alps or psychedelically featured Continental ice float your boat then this is the tool for you. The Switch is DMM’s new ‘state of the art’ full strength leashless tool that takes all of our design heritage and manufacturing knowledge and brings them together as a modern classic.
