The weight is barely noticeable and its built for prompt access in emergencies: The Striker Cx320 Avalanche Probe by MSR. The bottom part consists of aluminum and the top part consists of carbon. This minimizes weight without reducing stability. The individual segments are bound with a strong rope and are rounded at the ends, making them easy to thread. Once extended, a locking snap button at the top stabilizes the bar. A marking every 5 centimeters makes it easy to locate buried individuals. A high-quality design with the best materials: The Striker Cx320 Avalanche Probe!
