Ortovox 240 Light Avalanche Probe, the ideal compromise between length, weight and price. If the depth of burial is about 1m to 1.5m on average then the 240 has sufficient length.
New version with shorter length at only 37.5cm folded with 7 sections and a quick lock closure system, ideal probe for emergency use
The different-coloured segments made from aluminium indicate the depth. The "conic" tubes and the practical express screw fastener allow a fast assemblage of the probe. The larger head of the probe drills a bore channel being larger than the diameter of the probe so that the probe can be pulled out easily and doesn't freeze.
What is pfa?
It stands for Patented Flash Assembly, which means you can quickly assemble the probe with just one pull, even in the most stressful situations. To fold simply release the probe tensioning system with your thumb and pull the sections apart.
