A lightweight, compact shovel, the BCA B1-Ext is ideal for side-piste laps or those wanting to move fast and light in the backcountry. The oval shaft makes for a comfortable grip, and helps easy location of the handle into the head. Ergonomic T-shaped grip. The head contains a relief design to give increased stiffness to make digging more efficient. The neck is recessed into the blade, allowing for easier packing. These shovels are made of 6061 aluminum alloy, the same material commonly used in airplanes and bike frames for its lightness and strength.
