BCA New DOZER 2D Extendable Avalanche Shovel with D-Grip 705gms
The Dozer 2D is BCA's mid-sized shovel and features a D-grip handle for more control and comfort, especially for those wearing mittens.
All of BCA's new Dozer feature ovo-concave shafts and low-profile, "stompable" blades. The front third of the shovel blade offers a smooth surface for clean snowpit walls during snow stability tests. With BCA's flat "stomp edge" on the blade, you can penetrate just about anything by adding body weight. Auto-engaging spring pins at the blade/shaft connection make for faster, hands-free assembly/deployment. BCA shovels lie flat in your pack with no protruding ferrule or "neck," leaving more room for other backcountry gear. All BCA extendable shovels are designed to meet the UIAA standard for avalanche rescue shovels.
