The top 10 benefits of the DMM Cirque ice axe & DMM Cirque Hammer
Wow, We love the new and improved dmm cirque ice axe and what is not to love with this beautifully ergonomic design. Made specifically with walking enthusiasts and mountaineer’s in mind this axe provides the very best in comfort and quality.
So what have DMM added to the new sleeker axe? Well as mentioned the cirque is now sleeker and much stronger. The cirque is well renown for its durability and long lasting abilities but this is just the beginning of the positive changes.
