Grivel has been producing equipment for mountaineering, trail running and rock and ice climbing since 1818.
Innovation has always been its aim right from the start to improve its products in the name of safety and performance.

The company’s new showcase product is Dark Machine, the first axe with grip directly integrated into the handle, to ensure a secure grip during the entire climb. A real revolution that eliminates the tape and overmoulding that are subject to wear.
