In competitions where a real shovel is mandatory gear, the Crest is the only way to go. The polypropylene blade is not as rigid as other plastic blades to prevent bouncing.
The aluminum alloy shaft is contoured for a solid grip and good rigidity. Four slots on the blade allow for use as a snow anchor or emergency stretcher when combined with skis.
Best of all, this handled shovel is almost as light as some models without handles!
- The lightest shovel with a handle that is ISMF certified for ski mountaineering competitions
- Handle slides into blade for packability
- Fast deployment by simply pulling on handle
- Includes carrying bag equipped with straps for lashing to a pack
The emergence of CAMP dates back to the installation of Nicola Codega, skilful blacksmith, in a small workshop producing wrought iron parts in Premana, in the Lombard Prealps in 1889. 120 Years and four generations later, Premana is still the location of the headquarters of the company specialist in mountain equipment through its 2 brands: CAMP and CASSIN. The mountain equipment appears in 1920 among CAMP activities with the first ice axe for Alpine troops. The brand is represented in France by the company CAMP France, since 1988, installed at Sallanches, at the foot of Mont Blanc, the society is thus the closest to its core business. CAMP reputation is well established in terms of lightness, in sports ranging from hiking to cross-country skiing. Many products are "light" designed and conceived.
