The Michigan Ice Fest has always been a place where climbers can come and get a first look at the most innovative new climbing products on the market. Here’s a look at the latest greatest gear in ice climbing and beyond for the 2023/24 season! Remember when you sign up for the Michigan Ice Fest you can get 20% off your purchases at Down Wind Sports at the event or pre event over at www.shopdownwindsports.com
Today we feature the Petzl Neox
In 2024, the NEOX® will complement the existing Petzl GriGri assisted braking belay devices. The Neox, with blocking support using clamping cams has been optimized primarily for lead climbing: an integrated wheel ensures that the rope flows evenly and the rope is dispensed quickly. The ergonomic handle allows for easy control of the abseiling process.
We are hoping that we will have some at the fest for folks to check out- we will also be taking pre orders for the Neox!
