In competitions where a shovel is mandatory gear, the Crest is the only way to go. The polypropylene blade is not as rigid as other plastic blades to prevent bouncing, but this shovel is not designed for digging, rather just to be light for racing. The aluminum alloy shaft is contoured for a solid grip and good rigidity. Best of all, this handled shovel is almost as light as some models without handles!
