Mammut Carbon 240 Fast Lock Probe 2016-2017

Like all avalanche kit, you never actually want to have to use a probe – and if you have to carry it all over the damn mountain then you definitely don’t want to have to know about it. That’s why Mammut’s Carbon 240 Fast Lock is one of the lightest mid-length probes on the market, coming in at just 225g and folding into six discreet segments.

“Mammut’s Carbon 240 Fast Lock is one of the lightest mid-length probes on the market, coming in at just 225g”

Whilst that’s the carbon in its name coming into play, ‘Fast Lock’ is a clip system that makes the probe easier to extend and connect into place whilst wearing gloves – which means less time fiddling around and more time saving lives.

Along the length of the pole are markers indicating depth of burial to help calculate rescue times, but these also double as useful tools for when you’re digging snow pits or analysing pack safety before a descent.

A good probe should last you your whole life, and the Mammut Carbon 240 Fast Lock is one that’s hard to fault.

Trade Secrets

Ilari Dammert – Senior Product Manager, Mammut

Mammut’s product development team found out that more and more ski tourers and freeriders were willing to sacrifice the durability of their avalanche gear in favour of having lightweight products – but lightweight probes all too often had the potential to fail during rescues.

Therefore the idea was born to develop a probe with the best weight-performance ratio, which includes a functional tensioning system as well as highly durable carbon tubes. Right from the beginning of the development process, our goal was to make something that was small, easy to pack, light and durable, so we only used the very best materials.
