Alu 320+ PFA Probe (Fall 2022)
Stable, extendable probe with super-quick assembly
The ALU 320 + PFA is Ortovox's stable, extendable aluminum probe with PFA assembly system. It has the same features as the ALU 240 PFA probe, but is 320cm long and extendable. The tip is also replaceable.
Thanks to the optimized PFA system, the ALU 320 + PFA is now more compact while 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 320 + PFA’s new and improved rubberized grip also ensures safe, ice-free handling in all conditions.

ERGONOMIC GRIP The thin and light rubber coating provides the perfect grip for quickly assembling the probe.
PROBES 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 bottom-most segment in neon orange indicates when you are approaching the victim.
The quick-assembly strap makes immediate OPENING AND ASSEMBLY possible IN ONE MOTION, without first having to take the probe out of its cover.
LARGE PROBE TIP
The significantly larger diameter of the probe tip compared to the probe elements ensures improved penetration.
