A sturdy aluminum probe with a focus on assembly speed. Mammut recognized that time is of the essence when probing, and the last thing you need is to waste time assembling your probe. The Speed Lock system is easy and secure, matching well with the stable aluminum segments. The tensioning cord is durable and the system can be used with gloves or mittens. The Mammut Speed Lock probe is a good probe for ski touring and mountaineering.
- Speed Lock is a quick, individually locking tensioning system.
- Strong, lightweight segments are made with durable aluminum.

Update 2020/21: The Fast Lock system has been replaced by the Speed Lock with a larger interface for releasing tension on the probe when done with use. It's a slight tweak on an otherwise awesome probe.
Update 2023/24: There was a slight color change and the probes are now 1mm thicker to meet the UIAA probe certification standard.
