The Ultra Shove from Arva is the newest answer for ultra light and fast backcountry enthusiasts and racers.
Small, fast, and strong, the Arva Ultra Shovel is certified by the International Ski Mountaineering Federation, the governing body of world randonee racing. If that means one thing, it means the Ultra is super-light and won't slow you down if speed is the most important aspect of your day. It also won't break, thanks to a carbon fiber shaft and tough aluminum blade with rescue-sled-ready slots, so, in case of an emergency, you'll be able to get your buddy down as fast as he got up.
