The Backcountry Access B1 EXT is both light and extendable for weight-conscious skiers, snowboarders, and snowmobilers that prefer the ergonomics 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 inside. The Bomber line boasts an off-the-chart strengt- to-weight ratio, while taking up minimal storage space in your pack. Don't skimp on your shovel: the excavation process in an avalanche rescue is where the most time can be lost or gained and lives saved.
