  • Features

    • Ultracompact blade features a serrated leading edge and exceptional durability against cement-like avalanche debris; straighter geometry excels in moving snow in a rescue

    • Neckless design and reduced scooping angle makes it easy to stash in a small touring pack; neckless design also adds durability
    • Ergonomic T-shaped handle is meticulously designed to offer the same comfort and control as a D-handle in a compact, low-profile form that works with all glove types
    • 2-section, nonrotational telescoping shaft and fast lockpin provide rapid, hassle-free deployment
    • Shaft's upper section fits equally well into the blade, allowing you to choose the shovel length you need
