You want your snow probe ready in a microsecond when you need it, but so compact and light that you almost forget it’s there when your pack is on your shoulders. Ortovox’s Carbon 280+ PFA probe can be assembled in a snap thanks to its steel-cable tensioning system. It breaks down even easier -- a firm press on the button in the thumb cap and the tension system releases for easy collapsing. Milliseconds matter in an emergency. That’s why Ortovox built the Carbon 280+ PFA probe to the standards of the pros.
