The 240 Light PFA avalanche probe is perfect for people that prefer to go light yet don’t want to compromise their equipment durability. This probe is suitable for regular users that travel backcountry often but also like to access it from lifts some times, thus don’t want to carry a heavy duty tool.
This avalanche probe has everything a general user can ask for – it’s long enough for most conditions, it’s durable, yet still quite light.
There should be no excuse with this probe to not carry one at all times. It stores easily into any backpack and assembles lightning fast. There is no wasted time in case of emergency.
The 240 Light avalanche probe goes well with any snow shovel. But people that prefer a true heavy duty tools and like strong shovels might as well seek such a probe. If that’s you then take also a look at the Ortovox 320+ PFA avalanche probe.
