The beginner's probe with a very low weight. At a 240 cm length the Ortovox 240 Economic Avalanche Probe weighs just 230 grams. This is achieved by an aluminum tube with a diameter of 11 mm. The probe is stretched classically with a screw cap, in which the Kevlar draw line is clamped. The burial depth can be read on the probe segments. Like all Ortovox probes, the 240 Economic is delivered with a practical quick-release cover.
