AVG. PRODUCT RATING WRITE REVIEW »
A traditional avalanche probe relies on tactile sense (your sense of touch) to detect a buried victim, but the Pieps iProbe One Probe can actually detect the signal of a victim's beacon and emit an alert based on proximity to the beacon. Built to be rugged and durable, just like a traditional probe, the iProbe stands up to the same abuse and has been proven just as reliable. iProbe will detect any brand of beacon, and beacons with iProbe support allow for a few additional features which could potentially reduce multiple-victim search time. Pack a little extra technology in your pack and seconds spent probing could turn into seconds spent digging.
A single AA battery-powered proximity detector gives you both audible and visual confirmations when you’ve located a transmitting beacon
iProbe uses both visual and auditory proximity cues during search
When the tip of the iProbe is within two meters of a beacon, the LED lights up and the probe emits a "peep, peep" sound, and within 50-centimeters, the intermittent peeps become a continuous "peeeeeeep"
Mark button allows you to temporarily turn off a transmitting beacon to go search for other beacons if victim has an iPROBE-supported beacon (such as the Pieps DSP or Freeride)
Hitting the "mark" button a second time or removing the probe from the area causes the iProbe-supported beacon to automatically switch back to transmit
