Ortovox Badger Shovel
This is the biggest selling avalanche shovel on the market & for good reason!
The Badger is a super lightweight aluminum shovel with an ergonomic hybrid grip which combines the best features of both a T grip & a D grip for maximum power transmission. Its sizable blade volume of 2.5 litres is backed up by robust design, pronounced centre ridge & high side walls for full rigidity. Non-slip grooves on the top edge of the blade provide excellent traction when wearing boots. A centering aid in the shaft socket facilitates rapid assembly.
Blade: AL 5052 (strain hardened), powder coated, demountable
