Maximum rigidity for precise probing

Carbon is lightweight and rigid, and therefore the ideal material for high-end probes. The Ortovox 280+ Carbon PFA Probe is 280cm long and has all the features of a true professional probe. It is extendible, making it the first choice probe for many rescue organisations and mountain guides, while a 13mm diameter and carbon material make it incredibly strong, break-proof and accurate. It also has a steel-cable tensioning system, further guaranteeing maximum rigidity. Thanks to its PFA quick-assembly system, it can be assembled in just seconds and unfastened and folded away just as easily. A rubberised grip ensures safe, ice-free handling in all conditions. The 280+ Carbon PFA also features a visual guide system with depth markers and a clear 1-meter marker, allowing you to pinpoint the precise area in which to shovel for a faster and safer rescue.

even slimmer and more compact than the original system, while still offering the same proven smooth clamping performance.

Quick assembly strap

Rubberised grip

A thin and light rubber coating provides the perfect grip for quickly assembling the probe.

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 adapt your shovelling strategy and save important time thanks to the clear 1m marker, contrasting depth scale and colourful end segments. The bottom segment in neon orange indicates when you are approaching the victim.
