In this latest iteration of the classic Pro Alu Shovel, Ortovox have used the most innovative materials available and cutting edge production methods to achieve the best weight-to-rigidity ratio possible. Stabilisation ribs and high sidewalls give the anodised blade rigidity, while the integrated shaft socket makes it easy to pack. With the new quick-lock, the blade and the fluted telescoping shaft can be put together in one motion. What's more, the new T-Grip Pro is revolutionary. It can be inserted for both right and left-handers, while also facilitating economical clearing. One hand grasps the long grip side, which serves as an ergonomic lever, while the other hand has maximum hold on the shaft’s rubber-coated grip zone.
Although usually tucked away in your backpack or pants pocket, the Pocket Spike can quickly be retrieved in risky situations, for instance, when you’ve only got a few feet to the summit or if you have to cross a steep slope. In two steps, you can affix it to the Ortovox Pro Alu III Shovel handle for added protection. The Pocket Spike has two parts: The sharp forged axe head made of AL 7075 T6 and the shaft spike, which replaces the shovel blade. The two parts snap together to form a single piece with no sharp edges and weighing just 95 grams. This makes it perfect for tours where a little additional support is needed over the last few meters.
