The Akila is the first B/Type 1 ice axe to achieve such high level of technicality in the ultralight category. The shape of its chromoly steel ergonomic head is studied for optimal anchoring regardless of the surface. Its adze provides a wide enough blade to quickly clear snow to place your ice screw. The Akila is quite short (49cm), ultralight (330g) and compact to be easily stored inside a backpack. It is the ideal tool for climbers/skiers who want to climb faster and lighter with a very technical and robust ice axe.
