If you want to produce some nice maps (or analyze further your data outside
R), I
suggest you to export the probability surface (as raster), as well.
You can use something like (you have to work a little bit on the code, i am
copying it from a longer function):

res <- asc2spixdf(asc)
writeGDAL(res, paste(path,name, sep=""), drivername = "GTiff", type =
