The Ortovox Shovel Beast is an aggressive shovel with hybrid grip and optimal power transmission in a packable size. The pack-friendly blade has high side walls and a robust centre ridge, giving it outstanding rigidity. Ist cutting edge is sharpened and the upper edge is equipped with non-slip ridges. The grip permits a wide variety of grip positions for right and left-handers. The telescopic, rigid, oval-shaped shaft provides excellent ergonomics. The rubber coating on the lower section maximizes power transmission. The quick-lock eases assembly of shaft and blade.
Ortovox came to life with the invention of the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. With their passion for keeping skiers and snowboarders safe, Ortovox has grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
