Shovel and probe are two extra tools that are crucial for those who go ski touring, freeriding and snow hiking. Ermanno Sport provides the Ortovox models, safe and strong, with a comfortable backpack (not ABS) for freeriders.
Shovel and probe are used in case of avalanche. Help to probe the mass of snow to look for any missing and to dig in case of need. They are indispensable tools: to ensure the survival of those who are overwhelmed by the snow is in fact necessary to pull it out in a matter of minutes. Shovel and probe help at this stage of the rescue.
