Voile Telepro T6 Avalanche Shovel


Brand: Voile Manufacturing
  EAN 0759948402390
Weight: 850 g         5 reviews
The Voile Telepro T6 Avalanche Shovel is a superb snow shovel that is both lightweight and far-reaching. With an extended length of 100 cm and a total weight of 850 g, it is the choice of avalanche professionals, guides, patrollers, and rescue teams worldwide.

The Woodlore team have searched far and wide for the right snow shovel, using our first-hand experience to choose the right model, and the Telepro T6 fits the bill. It comes highly recommended for those attending one of our Winter Expeditions, and will make light work of ice fishing preparation and shelter building. It is equally suitable for keeping in your vehicle or home during the winter.

While many other shovels are so short that they cause back pain after anything more than brief usage, the extended length of the Telepro T6 allows you to work ache-free for long periods of time. The telescopic handle can be locked into two different lengths (80 and 100 cm, respectively), or removed completely for easy storage in your rucksack.

Another feature that is so often missing in show shovels today is a decent handle. The Telepro T6 overcomes this and employs a heavy-duty D-grip handle, allowing comfortable use with both gloves and mittens. Meanwhile, the shovel scoop features 'deadman' holes, allowing it to be used as a snow anchor, or for making an emergency rescue sled.

The name 'T6' refers to the level of hardness reached in the aluminum heat-treating process, and avalanche professionals require this level of durablity in their rescue shovel.

  Not had the opportunity to use this in anger yet but very well made. It has a lovely long handle that is removable for easy carriage, which can be locked at half length for use in confined spaces. Looked at a lot of different ones before I bought this one, without a doubt this is the best I've seen.

  Ticks all the boxes, and stronger than it feels. It's the one to get.

  Nice solid bit of kit. The D handle is much better with mittens. We will see how it copes in the mountains in the winter. Needs insulation on handle. Head seems strongly built.

  This one comes with me on every winter trip in the mountains. I've built different shelters with it (snow caves, Finsesatelitt etc.) and it works very good. It moves snow fast, a good thing in case of avalanches. When everybody wants to borrow your shovel, you know you've got the right one. It's got a couple of dents, but still works flawlessly. This one at Ray Mears I bought for my fiancee.
