Super light ice screw with aluminium body and replaceable steel tip.
The Helium is the new screw especially studied for mountaineering, ski mountaineering and glacier travels: it has an aluminum tube, which reduces its weight without compromising reliability.
The revolutionary steel tip, which is the part that wears out most, is replaceable, a feature that is missing in other steel + aluminum screws, where it is rarely possible to restore the initial performance by filing the material.
The minimal ergonomic handle with lever has two advantages: while closed it highly helps the first bite, and while open it increases the leverage.
Helium is your best partner in all mountaineering situations in which low weight is a priority.
