Do you mean the tools in the video dated February 12th?

I could be wrong, but to me they look like taped Ergos with Krukonogi picks.

Nah definitely not old ergo's, looks more grivel shafts and the head looks more like BD. I doubt it's petzl since they just released a ice AXE that uses their ice TOOL picks. And that head looks like it's a single bolt, but maybe there is a notch that interfaces into the second hole of existing picks.

Looks like a drytooling specific or comp tool. Petzl experimenting for their next-gen Ergos, and for their sponsored comp climbers in Europe? That's something I would buy if reasonably priced.

It's a tool called the Aspeed from IR, or known as ice rock. It's a Russian company.

It's interesting that the poster states that they're from Petzl. Maybe they're licensing the Aspeeds from Ice Rock the way Grivel seemed to have done with the Climbubu tools?
