Product Description

G3 AviTech Shovel

This is a strongly-built shovel; the connector tube and blade have been heat-treated after welding to relieve residual stresses and produce a rugged shaft-to-blade interface.


Weight: 760g (Std)

Blade is made from 6061 T6 aluminum.
Silver anodized aluminum shaft.
D-grip handle for easy grip; it features a unique ice axe loop attachment point.
Handle and blade are red for easy location in the snow.
Dry-stash compartment in handle.
Multiple slots in the blade allow easy attachment to pack, rigging an emergency rescue sled with skis, or rigging as a deadman snow anchor.
Available in two versions: ultralight short or longer telescoping handle.

Well Designed Shovel
Rugged professional use shovel. Buy the long telescoping version as can leave the center section of handle if want to go out with shorter lighter version.
A little heavier but this is what you want your buddies to carry as it moves lots of snow and will not break.
