ARVA Axio Beacon ARVA Axio Beacon
The Axio Beacon is Arva's most advanced avalanche transceiver designed for avid backcountry skiers who strive for the safest gear available. Unlike most beacons, even those with three antennas, the Axio's three antennas work simultaneously to provide a faster, smarter route search. The third antenna folds out of the beacon's housing to maximize its reception, reduce wandering along curved flux lines, and improve multi-burial identifications.Going beyond its unique three-antenna design, the Axio also features marking functions for multiple victim situations. It will alert you when you're leaving the flux line, and need to make a sharp U-turn back to buried victims. There's a motion detector that will switch the beacon's search mode back to transmitting if you go still all the sudden, just in case you get stuck in a second avalanche while searching for victims. Arva also designed this beacon to minimize distortions from phones, heated gloves, and other electronics. The group check feature helps you check your partners' beacons at the trailhead before heading out to avalanche terrain.

ARVA Evo4 Beacon ARVA Evo4 Beacon
Hopefully you'll only use the Arva Evo4 Beacon for practice, but its intuitive design makes for fast-and-easy use in emergency situations. The Evo4 is Arva's least expensive beacon with three antennas, and Arva upgraded it with a clearer, digital LCD screen for this season. It can indicate multiple buried victims, and you can mark each victim while you scan each area. The Evo4 also features group check to make sure it's working with all the other beacons in your party. Arva's clip for safe function turns the Evo4 on when you clip it to the included holster. Arva also included the batteries, and they last 250 hours for long-lasting use.

ARVA Neo Avalanche Beacon ARVA Neo Avalanche Beacon
Beacon features like effective multiple burial recognition and W-Link have gotten a lot of play recently, often overshadowing what might still be a transceiver's most important feature: range. With the 60m search bandwidth of the Neo Avalanche Beacon, Arva is putting the focus back on signal distance, without foregoing other seriously important beacon technologies.Having a beacon is no guarantee of backcountry safety and having an increased range doesn't change that. What range can do is save you some of the back-and-forth searching that comes with shorter-range beacons and large, spread-out debris fields, shaving valuable minutes off of search times and potentially saving lives. The Neo achieves its field-leading range by ensuring that two of its three antennas possess virtually equal receiving power, which ensures a stronger signal reception than traditional beacons, which rely primarily one one antenna to receive distant signals and only engage multiple antennas when you begin to zero in on your target.The Neo isn't a one-trick pony, either. Group check mode indicates if your partners' beacon is transmitting correctly, before heading out. It also has the ability to recognize and flag up to four burials, while indicating if there are more, and a U-turn alarm that indicates if you are moving away from a burial during a search. The Neo is prepared for secondary slides, too, as it has a timer that will automatically switch the beacon back to transmit mode after a given amount of time, ensuring that a searcher will not get buried and have a beacon that's stuck in search mode. It won't replace training and sound decision-making, but the Neo has the tools to help bail you out in a serious backcountry emergency.

Backcountry Access Tracker DTS Beacon Backcountry Access Tracker DTS Beacon

The second button lets you flag multiple burial victims, an original feature for the DTS that's now pretty much standard in all modern beacons.

Mammut Barryvox Package Mammut Barryvox Package
Earning your turns comes at a hefty cost when your life is on the line, especially after a heavy storm when snowpack stability is touchy to say the least. Even if you pick conservative terrain, analyze stability, and practice rescue techniques on a regular basis, you're still hedging your bets that the proverbial house of cards won't come tumbling down. The Mammut Barryvox Package gives you the means to rescue fellow skiers and riders, as well as help others locate you underneath an avalanche debris field, should things go horribly wrong on a backcountry tour. The Barryvox Package includes a Barryvox Beacon, Alugator Ride Shovel, and Probe 240, making it a complete package intended for locating buried victims, emitting a life-saving signal if you're buried, and digging snow pits to assess stability. The Alugator Ride Shovel easily collapses and maximizes digging strength with its hardened aluminum blade. Furthermore, the Probe 240 extends to 7. 9 feet for locating victims under the snow and collapses down to only 1. 5 feet in your pack. The Barryvox Beacon is one of the most popular on the market, and for good reason, thanks to its digital 3-antenna design with a 70-meter search strip for quickly locating buried victims. It's intuitive to use with an easy-to-read display that shows distance, direction, and victim number. The ergonomic design of the beacon features large buttons that work with gloves on. Multiple burial processing comes in handy for situations where there's numerous skiers and riders underneath the avalanche debris field, with a large flagging button for marking each victim's location. Another useful feature is the automatic switching between search to send after four minutes of inactivity, as it assumes a secondary avalanche has buried you.

Should you be buried, the S1+ features Smart Antenna Technology which analyzes the position of the antennas and automatically switches to the best transmitting antenna, which boots range 43% more than other devices on the market (with the exception of Ortovix' 3+), no matter what search device your companion is using. Once switched on, this intuitively-designed beacon transmits, but when opened up it switches straight to search mode and automatically starts scanning so you can quickly make the best decisions with the best possible information. Its illuminated 360 real-time display gives you detailed instructions on what to do. Bearing lines, direction arrow, and distance information lead you along the fastest route to the strongest transmission signal. A fine search mode helps you find the right spot to probe with a clear circle and arrow display as well as the distance down to a tenth of a meter. Once you pinpoint one signal and make the rescue, mark it with the glove-friendly flag button and move onto the next victim without other signals clouding your search.
