The Voile Hoback D Avalance Shovel is the easiest and most intuitive combo avalanche shovel and hoe that we have come across. The Voile Hoback D Avalance Shovel has a comfortable D-grip handle and unlike other combo shovels, you simply push the pin and twist to the handle to go between shovel and hoe mode.
Rapidly deployed hoe function for rescue situations. Telescoping handle adjusts from 30 to 100 without removing the scoop: simply press the pop-pin and twist.
New ergonomic D-grip increases leverage and accommodates mittens.
Cold forged and T6-tempered aluminum scoop sustains the impact of every shovel strike, negating the possibility of broken pins when working through ice or debris.
Flat shovel blade is ideal for conducting snow science.
