A lightweight (9.7 oz/260g), high-performance option for alpine rescues, the carbon-fiber Ortovox 240+ Carbon Pro pfa Probe effectively balances functionality, strength, durability, and collapsibility.
The individual shaft sections of the probe are constructed of 13mm diameter carbon and with the utilization of sturdy steel cable pull-line, the probe combines both rigidity and resiliency. The thermal conductivity of carbon makes the material much slower to freeze than steel or aluminum. Markers on the shafts make it easy to read the depth of snow. The probe measures 94 inches (240cm) in length but can be extended with additional shaft segments (sold separately). A quick-release tensioning system makes it easy to assemble the probe and also allows it to pack down easily when not in use.
An EVA foam grip serves as a comfortable hand hold even if the probe is use for extended periods of time.
Each Ortovox 240+ Carbon Pro pfa Probe includes a quick-release cover.
