BCA's medium-size shovel with a strong, packable blade and extendable shaft.
The B-2 EXT is perfect for skiers and snowboarders who do a lot of digging and prefer the comfort and functionality of an extendable shovel.
The 6061 aluminum BCA Bomber shovels feature an oval shaft with a more packable, bombproof, "ferrule-less" blade, ergonomic grip, and T6 heat treatment. The 2012/2013 Bomber Shovels now feature an end cap on the shaft, which prevents snow from building up along the inside. 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.
