The Aero is innovative thanks to its 3-tooth tip design which gives the best quick and easy screwing. Its thin wall design reduces the weight considerably, the steel tip and tube maintains high durability of the threads. Its largest diameter body allows to use securely existing holes when there is no other option. Colors-coding easily indicates the length of the screw. Its features and design make it the ideal ice screw for the most technical routes where performance, durability and lightness are key.

I now have 6 Aeros on my rack . They tend to start easier than others on my rack.
The 3 tooth , larger diameter is the answer .Have been leading ice for 41 years and Aeros inspire confidence on freaky , steep routes !
These screws bite into the ice better and place faster than any other screw. They are as light as aluminum screws from other brands but because they are steel they don't get sticky when placing and the wider core also sheds ice more easily when cleaning. Hanger and handle design are also the best on the market, easy to clip and no fear of dropping while placing or cleaning.
The steel being as light as other aluminums make this an easy choice for all conditions. But it’s also simply the best, regardless of weight. Larger bore is better, too (V-threads, holding strength etc…in this case, size matters). Great cutting angles. They go in like buttah. Amazing that Blue Ice pulls all this off; best screws on the market by far. I’ve screwed with others for years, but will never go back! This is the place for the best big and easy screw. The minimal weight keeps you fresh, too, so you can rack up more screws.
Somehow BI found a way to make a steel screw as light as an aluminum screw. I dont need to know the secrets, but I know I love these screws! Well done!
Love them! They go in like a hot knife though butter.
