With 200 g it is the lightest aluminum probe in the Ortovox probe range. With the quick-release tensioning system it is ready for use in seconds and just as quickly collapsed again and put together. Slippage of the segments can be ruled out! At 240 cm the burial depth can be read on the individual segments.
Like all ORTOVOX probes, the Alu 240 is delivered with a practical quick-release cover.
Ortovox came to life when Gerald Kampel and Jürgen Wegner developed the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. They have since grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
