K2 engineers spent many seasons perfecting the 230cm Carbon Avalanche Probe so it's not only one of the lightest probes on the market, but it's also among the strongest and stiffest available. Carbon shaft sections quickly lock into place, precise shaft markings give you accurate depth readings, and the trigger-style handle makes for lightening-fast deployment. This is a serious probe for backcountry skiers and snowboarders who can't afford to wonder if they'll be able to pierce through rock-hard avalanche debris to locate their partner.
Flexible probes are adequate for collecting snowpit data and identifying crevasses and we hope thats the only time you ever need your probe But when its time to locate a buried avalanche victim saving a few grams on a shorter more flexible or fragile model could be a fatal mistake So even though our probes are as light as anything youll find on the market were most proud of the fact that theyre among the strongest and stiffest available Add the K2 Avalanche Probe Carbon 300 to you backcountry pack todayFeaturesbull Rulerbull Backside Auto Lockbull Trigger Pull Handle
