If you want a light avalanche probe that still has long reach for rescue situations or snow study then Life-Link Carbon Speed Probe will deliver just that. At 280 cm it is good enough for even snowier regions yet it’s considerably lighter than aluminum probes in similar lengths.
Life-Link Carbon Speed Probe is a favorite of those that travel light yet don’t like to compromise much. This avalanche probe is suitable for any regular use but will not last if abused daily. Avalanche professionals might want to look at different probes for their job.
This Life-Link avalanche probe has carbon tubing and features an aluminum tip for better snow penetration.
Fully assembled the probe is 280 cm long and features depth marker increments every 5 cm. When folded, at 40 cm, it will easily fit into any backpack.
There aren’t any fancy things or features going for this avalanche probe. It simply does what it was designed for and that should be good enough for most.
You want to accompany this light probe and a light snow shovel to make sure you stay on track for shaving grams.
