Ortovox Avalanche Safety Pro Alu III Shovel Safety Blue 2120300002. In this latest iteration of an ORTOVOX classic they have used the most innovative materials available and cutting edge production methods to achieve the best weight-to-rigidity ratio possible. Stabilization ribs and high sidewalls give the anodized blade rigidity while the integrated shaft socket makes it easy to pack. With the new quick-lock the blade and the fluted telescoping shaft can be put together in one motion. The new T-Grip Pro is revolutionary. It can be inserted for both right and left-handers - and also facilitates economical clearing. One hand grasps the long grip side which serves as an ergonomic lever while the other hand has maximum hold on the shaft's rubber-coated grip zone.
