PFA Quick Assembly SystemThe successor to Ortovox's oft-copied quick-assembly system is even slimmer and more compac, while still offering the same proven smooth clamping performance. Thanks to the new quick-assembly strap, the probe can be assembled straight out of the cover. It can be collapsed by pressing the system cap with your thumb. The thin and light rubber coating provides the perfect grip for quickly assembling the probe.

Large Probe TipThe significantly larger diameter of the probe tip compared to the probe elements ensures improved penetration.

Visual Guide SystemThe intuitive visual guide system provides you with quick and clear information about the victim‘s depth at all times. You can perfectly adapt your shoveling strategy and save important time thanks to the clear 1m marker, contrasting depth scale and colorful end segments. The bottommost segment in neon orange indicates when you are approaching the victim.

Quick Release CoverThe quick-assembly strap makes immediate opening and assembly possible in one motion, without first having to take the probe out of its cover.

Ergonomic Grip The thin and light rubber coating provides the perfect grip for quickly assembling the probe.
