Corsa Nanotech

Abstract:
C.A.M.P. proposes an innovative, lightweight ice axe which combines a 7075 aluminium head and shaft with a point riveted to the pick, made out of innovative Sandvik Nanoflex® stainless steel. This makes the head of the axe more resistant to corrosion and gives enormous weight-saving benefits. The point of the pick is more durable due to Sandvik Nanoflex® steel having 60% more tensile strength than normal steel and so the life of the axe is extended.

The Corsa Nanotech has been designed for classic Alpinism, ski-mountaineering, competitions and expeditions. Developed and tested in cooperation with Simone Moro, Corsa nanotech has been rewarded with the Outdoor Industry Award 2006 in the category"Mountain-climbing equipment" and with the "Editor's Choice Winter 2007" from the German magazine Outdoor.
