Milliseconds matter in a backcountry emergency. The most important things an emergency snow probe can be are fast, reliable, and easy to read. The Ortovox ALU 240 Light probe can be snapped into position in one motion thanks to its Aramid tensioning system and quick-lock assembly.
Its intuitive visual marking system includes a contrasting depth scale and bright, clear marker at 1m of depth. And at barely 8 ounces, safety has never been so convenient to carry.
