Built for general mountaineering on easy to moderate terrain this axe features a unique shaft shape designed to facilitate self-belay and self-arresting (SA stands for Self-Arrest). The bend in the lower part of the shaft allows for more snow between the axe shaft and the slope, meaning more resistance to shearing. It also allows for a pivot point against the chest for better manipulation when in self-arrest mode.
