Lightweight, compact and efficient: the BEAST is a cleverly designed avalanche shovel that is perfect for beginners as well as for more demanding users.

The combination of high-quality materials, high sidewalls and a pronounced center ridge ensure the necessary tensile strength and stability. A sharp, sturdy cutting edge guarantees optimum performance. Its 83-centimeter working length and 2.3l scoop volume is the ideal size for efficient work after an avalanche and thanks to the pack-friendly shovel blade with its non-slip step grooves and the telescopic, rapid-closure shaft, the shovel is easily stowed away in your backpack in next to no time.

With other features such as the T-grip with switchover function for left and right-handers, the BEAST focuses on the essentials and is a great piece of gear for your course.
