The unique design of the Ortovox Professional Aluminum Shovel fulfils the highest demands of functionality. Thanks to the torsion-free aluminium-/magnesium alloy the shovel blade is very strong and unbreakable. The ergonomic grip offers the best grip for left and right handers. The shovel can be used as a hoe and - beside the classic fields of use for an avalanche shovel- it is just right for building a kicker. The sharp edge enables the user to cut into the hard snow without burning too much of their own energy.
