Product Info

K2’s avalanche probes typify their commitment to backcountry travel – light, strong, reliable and well thought-out. The K2 Aluminum 230 Avalanche Probe is a shortened version of the K2 Aluminum 300 Avalanche Probe and uses their stoutest construction, giving you better durability and improved probing performance in consolidated snow. The shaft is marked in 1 cm increments for accuracy in depth and snowpit observations, and the Backslide Auto-Lock makes assembly and disassembly simple even with gloves on. Indents in K2’s Trigger Pull Handle secure your probe and keep things neat when it’s in your pack.

          Comments about K2 Aluminum 230 Avalanche Probe:

          Great product from a trusted brand. As light or lighter than any other aluminum probe, but has to be the quickest to deploy I've seen. What sold me on this probe is how much shorter the packed length is compared to the others, for the same overall length. Makes it easier to fit in most avy gear pockets found on most packs.
