Made of extremely lightweight but durable heat-treated T6 Aluminium, the new BCA Shaxe Speed Shovel offers a fantastic power-to-weight ratio, as well as boasting a versatile range of functions thanks to its interchangeable heads.
In shovel mode, the 24cm x 28.5cm blade comes with holes for use as a snow anchor.
The smooth blade allows for shaving down clean snow pit walls and contains holes for use as a snow anchor.
The Type 1 Ice axe attachment, made of 7075 T6 aluminium, gives this shovel its dual function, saving weight and space in your pack by eliminating the unnecessary axe shaft.
This shovel is a great addition to your spring/summer skiing arsenal. The shovel is still operational when switched to axe mode, as attachments use opposite ends of the shaft. This tool also includes hardware to utilize the blade and shaft to make a rescue sled with K2 skis (or any skis with holes in tip and tail).
