The Ortovox Carbon 240 Superlight Probe is Ortovox's lightest probe, perfect for users determined to save space and weight.
The super-light weight of this probe is achieved in part thanks to its carbon segments. As well as being much lighter than steel, Carbon also freezes much more slowly, thanks to its low thermal conductivity.
Another design feature which helps keep this probe so light is the Aramid tensioning system. Aramid is a specially crafted polymer, originally developed for the military, which combines exceptional strength and heat resistance with a very low weight.
The shorter segments (37.5cm) allows a more compact pack size, and the 10mm diameter ensures that this probe takes up the minimum space in any pack.
