Product details: Ortovox Pro Light Avalanche Shovel Safety Blue
Extremely lightweight, compact and functional: The Ortovox Pro Light Avalanche Shovel is the perfect companion for all ski tourers who want to be lightweight on the go, but place high demands on their equipment!
Its practical switchover function makes the Pro Light shovel suitable for both left and right-handers. For the telescopic shaft of the shovel Ortovox used high-quality 7075 T6 aluminum that is both very light and extremely strong. For the blade Ortovox used the 6061 T6 aluminum. It also has step grooves to stop your foot slipping when digging. A sharp, sturdy cutting edge guarantees optimum performance. High sidewalls and a pronounced center ridge on the blade provide the necessary rigidity.
Thanks to notches in the material, the Pro Light Avalanche Shovel is not only lighter but also suitable for building a rescue sled or for use as a snow anchor. It is also compatible with the Ortovox Pro Alu III shaft and fits in all Ortovox backpacks.
