The lightweight, ultra-strong aerospace aluminum blade of the Transfer 3 shovel facilitates maximum snow removal in the smallest footprint of space with an optimized, extended shaft length.
Built with aerospace aluminum for a lightweight, ultra-strong design, the Black Diamond Transfer 3 shovel helps you throw as much snow as possible from the smallest footprint of space. The durable, high-volume blade and extendable shaft provide the snow-moving performance you need in any backcountry situation. Shaft deploys quickly via a quick squeeze of spring pins; shaft shape prevents rotation for positive engagement of spring pins every time. Ergonomic T-grip handle feels like a D-grip but packs small and is glove- and mitten-friendly. Sturdy anodized 6000-series aluminum blade has a smooth and flat shape that carves quickly through snow during recovery and cuts clean during pit analysis. Pointed blade enables more effective chopping and flat sides help in smoothing pit walls; anchor holes through blade allow use as a dead man anchor. Black Diamond Transfer 3 shovel weighs 650g (1 lb. 7 oz.).
The Black Diamond Transfer 3 Shovel combines a small size, low weight, and idiot-proof design for demanding backcountry fanatics. What sets the Transfer 3 apart from other avalanche shovels is its trapezoidal shaft. This Black Diamond shovel's shape ensures no rotation during setup, so it goes together fast and easy. In addition, the low 1lb 7oz weight puts a smile on the faces of alpine climbers and backcountry skiers alike.
Whether you are digging out a snow pit or a burried friend, the Transfer Shovel from Black Diamond will give you the efficiency and strength you need. With an ultra-strong aluminum blade and trapezoidal handle that eliminates rotation, digging out a deep pit has never been easier.
