Look, no one is saying that you can’t go out there and be as extreme as you want to be, just make sure safe while you do. That’s where the Mammut Barryvox S Avalanche Beacon comes in. If you’re a backcountry skier, a mountaineer, or a guide, then you know the dangers of avalanches. You can continue exploring, going, skiing anywhere your heart desires knowing that this beacon is ready if the danger sets in.
The Barryvox S has a 70-meter range thanks to its triple antenna in digital mode and 80 meters in analog. If you’re still for four minutes, the beacon auto switches from search to send, so even if you’re not able to operate it, the Barryvox S has your back. Barryvox also features a smart search display that can help you as your move down slide paths by offering assistance with proper probe planting to help refine your avy techniques. Even without this feature, the Barryvox S has a simple readout that displays distance, direction, and even the number of burial victims.
The Mammut Barryvox S takes three AAA batteries, giving it a 300 hour battery life. The included harness can be used, and because of its light 7 ounce weight, the beacon will be barely noticeable.
You can still get out there and be as adventurous as you like, but give your loved ones at home the peace of mind they need by keeping safety equipment like the Barryvox in your gear.
