Ortovox Kodiak Snow Shovel

A tough mountaineering shovel with unique clearing function and practical D-grip. The KODIAK shovel boasts the largest shoveling volume (3.1 liters) in the Ortovox product line, so it can safely be called the fastest of the bunch. The blade is also extremely rigid (AL 6061 T6 is the perfect material for shovels), yet this tool is easy to pack and fits easily into any ORTOVOX backpack. Its cutting edge is sharpened and its upper edge is equipped with non-slip ridges to keep your boot sole in place while digging. The shaft is oval (for greater rigidity) and has a telescopic, non-slip rubberized surface.  Professionals will be delighted by the shovel blade’s flat reverse side, which allows snow profiles to be dug even more effectively. Ortovox have retained the tried-and-tested EASY PLUG (Kodiak) clearing function: Here the blade is placed at a 90 degree angle to the shaft. Switching between standard position and clearing function SAVES TIME AND EFFORT.

The D-grip is considered the most ergonomic grip and aids powerful shoveling of snow. This latest version of the Kodiak has been made more compact than its predecessor, without compromising on length.  The connection between the shaft and blade is virtually indestructible, saving critical seconds when used to save your companion’s life. The editors of Bergsteiger magazine recognized the perfection of Kodiak and honored the shovel with their “Best Shovel” award!
