    BCA DOZER SHOVELS /

    Our new ovo-concave shaft, low-profile stompable blades, and wide range of cored-out handles make BCA shovels stronger, lighter, and more packable than ever before.

    This new line is inspried by our legendary D-2 EXT "Dozer" Shovel. It's so popular among our core followers, we've named our entire new line after it!

    BCA was the first to create an avalanche shovel with a non-round shaft, to prevent breakage while prying. We've take our groundbreaking oval design and added a concave radius on both sides, to make it even stronger, without adding weight. Tightly toleranced "variable offset" sliding surfaces between the inner and outer walls of the extendable shaft prevent ice buildup, for reliable deployment.

    In hard-slab avalanches and deep burials, avalanche debris can be difficult to penetrate. With our flat "stomp" edge on the top of the blade - and heat-treated 6061 aluminum - 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 shovel blades lay flat in your pack with no protruding ferrule or "neck", leaving more room for other backcountry essentials (and luxuries too!). The front third of all blades offers a smooth surface for clean snowpit walls during snow stability tests.
