If you ride the backcounty then you need an Avalanche Kit. This Ortovox lightweight emergency Kit comes with the three components you need when riding off-piste - Avalanche Transciever, Shovel & Probe. Extremely lightweight and highly intuitive products that can be easily mastered even in stressful situations.
Diract Voice Intuitive Avalanche Receiver with Voice Navigation
The Direct Voice with integrated voice navigation combines intuitive operation with state-of-the-art technology and a handy, clever design. It is streamlined down to just one button and ensures intuitive user guidance in stressful situations thanks to clear instructions, symbols and a 360-degree real-time display. Equipped with patented Smart Antenna Technology, the Direct Voice significantly increases the chances of avalanche burial victims being found. The device analyzes its location in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transmitting antenna. Both state-of-the-art digital three-antenna technology and an automatic secondary avalanche switchover are standard with Ortovox. In addition to the SEND and SEARCH modes, there is also a standby mode for suppressing the signal during the search. The rechargeable low-temperature battery provides a reliable power supply even at -20°C and is particularly long-lasting and environmentally friendly.
Alu 240 Lightweight Aluminum Avalanche Probe
Weighing in at just 235 grams, the Alu 240 Light is incredibly lightweight and ready to use in just seconds thanks to the quick-assembly strap and quick-lock assembly system. The tension can be adjusted quickly and easily by means of the optimized adjusting screw. The large probe tip, which has a significantly larger diameter compared to the probe elements, ensures improved penetration. We have also optimized the probe segments so that they now have a more compact packing size. The Alu 240 Light therefore fits easily into your backpack. As with all our probes, the Alu 240 Light features easy-to-read depth markers, a clear 1-meter marker and a neon orange bottom segment to optimally adapt the shovelling strategy.
Schaufel Pro Light Aluminium Shovel with Ergonomic Handle
The Schaufel Pro Light is an extremely lightweight aluminium shovel made using innovative materials, modern manufacturing processes and clever notches in the blade. The hybrid handle provides for maximum force transmission. Its sizeable blade volume of 2.1 litres is backed up by its robust design, pronounced centre ridge and high sidewalls for full rigidity. Non-slip grooves on the top edge of the blade provide adequate grip when applying foot pressure. A centering aid in the shaft socket facilitates rapid assembly.
