The Backcountry Access B-52 EXT is BCA's biggest and baddest digging machine for industrial use--and for making big jumps! 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 BCA Bomber shovels now feature an end cap on the shaft, which prevents snow from building up along inside. The Bomber line boasts an off-the-chart strength-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.
