If you are in need of a super lightweight, skimo racing specific probe, look no further than the Arva Race 240. This probe weighs just 122g and, like the older Carbon Compact, has eight 30cm sections rather than six 40cm sections. Looking to be even more compact and lightweight? The Race 240 Probe can answer your call; one section can be removed if desired, saving some weight and length when it isn’t necessary. The Race 240 is extremely compact and lightweight and meets ISMF and PDG standards. Offering a blend of responsibility to your ski partners and extra room in your pack, the ARVA Race 240 probe is the safe choice for the weight and space conscious.

  • Ultra-lightweight 10mm diameter carbon fiber tubing.
  • Compact 30cm segments make for easy pack stowing.
  • Kevlar cord will not break and uses a simple knot-in-a-slot to hold tension.
  • Markings every five centimeters help gauge the depth of a victim.
  • 240cm length meets ISMF and PDG regulations.
  • FLASH LOCK locking system is quick and secure

Update 2022/23: The probe is sporting a new paint job but otherwise remains unchanged.

Questions & Reviews

Eddy v (used product a few times)
I really wanted to like this probe because it's so light. I assembled it in my living room before my first tour and it seemed about as sturdy as something so light could be. But after a few tours I tried to assemble it again to check snow depth and it wouldn't click into place - one of the little connectors had fallen into the probe section so there was nothing to connect. Naturally Arva warrantied the probe, but I've now lost confidence in it. The last thing you want when a buddy has been buried is to be unable to probe!
