6mm Bore Out Of Stock

A brand new design from CARBONaero - this single probe is designed as a direct replacement for almost all existing probes. This probe senses total energy, and is available in the two most common plug sizes (~8mm and ~6mm), as well as legacy sizes such as 1/4 inch. Please contact us for a set of sizing plugs to ensure the correct probe is supplied. Bespoke sizes can be manufactured with a 1-2 week lead time.


Manufactured from carbon fibre tube, this probe is lighter and stiffer than the competition. The painted nylon sensing head further reduces weight and make for a snag free probe that is less susceptible to damage.

It is nominally 0.75m in length, so taking it's TE pressure measurement further away from the influences of the fin and tailplane of the glider and further away from the wake from the wings than most standard sized TE probes.

Also built with a fluorescent tip to help prevent you or onlookers from walking into your probe!

More Information

Knowing accurately what the air is doing around your glider is one of the keys to successful soaring and cross country. This information can only be provided truly accurately by a properly compensated total energy probe, and a leak free setup. This revolutionary new style of total energy probe has been years in design and development by CARBONaero. It changes the traditional style of vortex-shed sensing to a swept body pressure field design. This new design features very low drag but smooth and consistent TE readings at much higher yaw and pitch values than traditional style TE probes. The unique shape (a registered European design) is lower drag than a T-style probe, despite its looks, and is the key to delivering accurate pressure even when the glider is in turbulent air. Unlike other TE tubes, this design is not affected by excesive yaw, pitch or G loading.

Great fast service from Shaun and the team.
Probe looks very well manufactured and come with varios size o rings to ensure a perfect seal.
Looking forward to testing once lockdown is out of the way and we can fly again.
