Alu 240 PFA Probe
Light and compact with rapid-deploy PFA system
In emergency situations speed is of the essence. That’s why Ortovox has made their 240 cm-long aluminum probe even more efficient. Thanks to the optimized PFA system, the Alu 240 PFA is now more compact while also offering better handling. The quick-assembly strap makes immediate opening and assembly possible in one motion. In order to determine burial depth and select an optimized shoveling strategy, all Ortovox probes have highly legible depth markers and a clear 1 meter marker. The bottom-most segment in neon orange provides visual notification of the proximity of the buried person during shoveling. The Alu 240 PFA’s new and improved rubberized grip also ensures safe, ice-free handling in all conditions.
