The Ortovox Pro Alu III Shovel combines rigid and lightweight metals to create a highly functional, lightweight shovel that can move a ton of snow in an avalanche emergency. Stabilization ribs and high sidewalls give the anodized blade rigidity, while the integrated shaft socket makes it easy to pack. The quick-lock mechanism makes it easy to put the shaft in place and start digging when time is of the essence. The T-Grip Pro handle reverses to fit your handed-ness, so righties and lefties alike can use this shovel efficiently.
The ingenious Orotovox Pocket Spike is also included in with this shovel set. Although it might spend most of the time tucked away in your pack, the Pocket Spike can quickly be retrieved in tense situations, for instance, when you’ve only got a few feet to the summit or if you have to cross a steep slope. In two steps, you can mount it on to the PRO ALU III shovel handle for added protection. The Pocket Spike has two parts: the tough axe blade made from AL 7075 T6 and the spike, which is attached in place of the shovel blade. The two parts snap together to form a single piece with no sharp edges and weighing just 95 grams.
