To save a life, a shovel needs to operate with speed and precision. The Rocket facilitates this in a truly scientific way. The sturdy blade and shaft have been carefully studied to ensure optimal performance. The blade shape and size (oversized at 24 x 28 cm) integrate with the shaped shaft and formed handle for the best shoveling ergonomics allowing rescuers to move more snow in less time. 6061 T6 aluminum alloy is a rigid, yet resistant material optimized for chopping along with teeth for cutting in really hard snow and small teeth on the upper part of the blade to facilitate secure boot-to-blade contact for heavier digging. The ergonomics of the shaft also allow the shovel to be compacted to a smaller volume than other shovels. The Rocket is a true stroke of genius born from the intense study of what makes a shovel really work in the backcountry and the results are unparalleled.
