BCA Shovels are known in the industry for their quality. Dig hard. Pack small.
BCA bombproof shovels is the first in the industry with non-round (oval) shafts. Connect that to the heat-treated, neckless blades, and you have the strongest and most packable shovels you can find.
The B-1 EXT avalanche shovel is both light and extendable for weight conscious skiers and snowboarders that prefer the comfort and functionality of an extendable shovel. The Bomber line boasts an off-the-chart strength to weight ratio, while taking up minimal storage space in your pack. Remember, the excavation process in an avalanche rescue is where the most time can be lost or gained.
B-1 EXT Avalanche Shovel Features
- The 6061 aluminum BCA Bomber shovels feature an oval shaft with a more packable, bombproof, “ferrule-less” blade, ergonomic grip, and T6 heat treatment.
- Includes an end cap on the shaft, which prevents snow from building up along the inside.
All of BCA’s new Dozer shovels feature ovo-concave shafts and low-profile, “stompable” blades. The front third of the shovel blade offers a smooth surface for clean snowpit walls during snow stability tests. With BCA’s flat “stomp edge” on the blade, you can penetrate just about anything by adding body weight. Auto-engaging spring pins at the blade/shaft connection make for faster, hands-free assembly/deployment. BCA shovels lie flat in your pack with no protruding ferrule or “neck,” leaving more room for other backcountry gear. All BCA extendable shovels are designed to meet the UIAA standard for avalanche rescue shovels.
Dozer 1T Avalanche Shovel Features
- Crafted of 6061 T6 aluminum and designed with an extendable T-grip handle, the Dozer is made to move snow fast.
