You hope you never have to use your avy shovel. On the other hand, the Kicker Tool™ is designed for abuse every time you go out. The Kicker Tool’s™ shovel blade is almost twice the thickness of your standard avalanche shovel and the shaft is almost twice the length, meaning:
1. This thing ain’t going to break, and
2. A longer shovel shaft doubles your leverage and saves your back. The shovelhead is significantly different too; it features a unique design that shovels, rakes, crushes and packs snow into one hell of a stellar jump.
