Weighing just 185g, the CARBON 240 SUPERLIGHT is our lightest probe. This 240cm-long probe can be quickly and easily assembled by means of its quick-lock assembly system. It is thus ready for use in just seconds, and can be folded up just as quickly. The tension can be easily and quickly set by turning the optimized adjusting screw. The large probe tip, which has a significantly larger diameter compared to the probe elements, ensures improved penetration. We have also optimized the probe segments so that they now have a more compact pack size. The CARBON 240 SUPERLIGHT will easily fit into your tour backpack.
As with all our probes, the CARBON 240 SUPERLIGHT features a visual guide system with depth markers and a clear 1-meter marker.
VISUAL GUIDE SYSTEM
The intuitive visual guide system provides you with quick and clear information about the victim‘s depth at all times. You can perfectly ADAPT YOUR SHOVELING STRATEGY and save important time thanks to the clear 1m marker, CONTRASTING DEPTH SCALE and COLORFUL END SEGMENTS. The bottommost segment in neon orange indicates when you are approaching the victim.
Ortovox came to life with the invention of the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. With their passion for keeping skiers and snowboarders safe, Ortovox has 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!
