Pieps designed the super-light Racer Shovel for ski touring and touring races. Its special aluminum alloy and coating ensure the lightest possible weight, while a sharp edge lets it slice into snow quickly and effectively. The oval-shaped T-handle is easy to grip and won't twist as you shovel, and a rip-stop coating on the shaft offers excellent grip for your other hand.
