Key Features To Help You Find The Best Avalanche Probes 

Not all probes are created equal. You can shop our collection above knowing that - no matter which product you go with - you’re getting one of the best products in the industry. We’ve done the hard work of curating only the best of the best for you. But, here are a few key features to look for:

  • Quick Assembly & Quick Release: When it comes to saving trapped victims, mere seconds can be the difference between “just in time” and “too late”. Look for probes that assemble quickly and release quickly.
  • High Stability: For effective, efficient probing, you need stable, rigid probes. This keeps your probing efforts accurate and straight. Keep in mind - stability requires heavier probes, which compromise on the lightweight aspect.
  • Length: Look for probes that are capable of probing over 240cm in length (when all probes are attached together).
  • Visual Guide: After pinpointing a buried victim, you should be able to quickly glance at the probe and know exactly how far down they are.
  • Probe Tip: It goes without saying you need a sharp tip capable of penetrating deep snow - and even ice, in some cases. 
  • Materials: For the best balance of strength/rigidity and lightweightness, stick with aluminum.
