The most innovative feature on the X-Dream Alpine remains with the angle-adjustable handle that allows climbers to switch between Dry and Ice positions. Turn the Allen bolt above the grip to switch between the two positions. In the Dry position, the handle rotates upward for a more downward and outward pull. The Ice position drops the handle for a more natural swing and grip on slabby and vertical terrain.
All three picks feature the refined beak and tooth configuration that CASSIN tools are known for. They are designed to provide solid sticks with minimal penetration making them the perfect choice for brittle ice and technical mixed terrain. The included Ice pick delivers a swing that is very similar to the popular X-All Mountain tool with a little extra head weight from the small hammer. The optional Race pick is designed to be used with the regular X-Dream handle and features a sharp beak for grappling with rock along with more aggressive teeth both on the underside and topside of the pick. The optional Mixte pick is a blend between the two with similar angles to the Ice pick but only a small hammer plate and teeth reaching further down the shaft like the Race pick.
