Some important details about the k2 aluminium probe
Shorter or flexible probes are adequate for collecting snow-pit data and identifying crevasses, and we hope that's the only time you ever need your probe. But when it's time to locate a buried avalanche victim, saving a few grams on a shorter, more flexible or fragile model could be a fatal mistake. So even though K2 300 probes are as light as anything you'll find on the market, K2 are most proud of the fact that they're among the strongest and stiffest available.
