Carbon is lightweight and rigid, and therefore the ideal material for our high-end probes. This lightweight carbon probe is 280cm long and has all the features of a true professional probe. It is extendible, making it the first choice probe for many rescue organizations and mountain guides. The 13mm diameter and carbon material make it incredibly rigid, break-proof and accurate. It also has a steel-cable tensioning system, guaranteeing maximum rigidity. Thanks to its PFA quick-assembly system, it can be assembled in just seconds and unfastened and folded just as easily. The rubberized grip also ensures safe, ice-free handling in all conditions. As with all Ortovox probes, the CARBON 280+ PFA features a visual guide system with depth markers and a clear 1-meter marker. In addition, it comes in an optimized quick-release cover.
