Overview

A newly updated multi-function snow tool that's designed to save weight, time and lives

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.
