World Cup ice climbing is a unique sport and requires high performance tools to navigate through the mixed terrain that these competition walls dish out. All of the Grivel athletes, and a few other competition climbers, use the Grivel Reparto Corse Carbon Force tool. Created for the competition climbers and high-end mixed lines where the route is more rock than ice, the Carbon Force is the ultimate in hooking and dry-tooling performance. The Carbon Force’s shaft angle allows matching or changing grip anywhere on the shaft without the pick shifting. Grab a pair at a Grivel dealer near you.
