TerraWest Core Shovel
The Terrawest Core Shovel is a light, extremely practical shovel with a great strength-to-weight ratio, built for use by all off-piste skiers or back-country expeditions.
This is an all Aluminium shovel that is collapsible into 3 parts for efficient transport, or 2 parts for fast assembly in an emergency.
The telescopic function also means that the shovel can be used at full length, for maximum power, or at a shorter length for the greatest possible efficiency of movement in tighter spaces.
A classic T-Style grip means this shovel is easy to use and a strong, anodized Aluminium (6061), means the blade will not fail, regardless of load or conditions.
Blade size: 28cm by 22cm.
82cm maximum length and 66cm option for shorter shovelling.
Ortovox Carbon 240 Superlight Probe
The CARBON 240 SUPERLIGHT is Ortovox's lightest probe, perfect for users determined to save space and weight.
The super-light weight of this probe is achieved in part thanks to its carbon segments. As well as being much lighter than steel, Carbon also freezes much more slowly, thanks to its low thermal conductivity.
Another design feature which helps keep this probe so light is the Aramid tensioning system. Aramid is a specially crafted polymer, originally developed for the military, which combines exceptional strength and heat resistance with a very low weight.
The shorter segments (37.5cm) allows a more compact pack size, and the 10mm diameter ensures that this probe takes up the minimum space in any pack.
