Zoom+ Avalanche Transceiver

Zoom+ Avalanche Transceiver


£165.00


The Zoom+ from Ortovox combines the simplest handling with the latest technology and the most advanced design. Reduced to two funtional buttons, the Zoom+ concentrates on intuitive usability. The focus on the clearly designed LED display is on the on/off switches and the switch between transmitting and searching. Distances, directional arrows and information about several avalanche victims guide you in the fastest way to the refined search area, with the intuitive search acoustics making victims easier to locate. Equipped with the patented smart antenna technology, avalanche victims are found much better with the Zoom+. The device analyzes its position in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transmission antenna. If skiers are caught out by an avalanche, their companions in the vicinity have their work cut out. They have to locate the victims and dig them out as quickly as possible. The chances of survival diminish rapidly after 18 minutes of burial in the snow. Avalanche transceivers are essential items of equipment for anyone going off piste, it can make the difference between life and death. When the tracker shows you’re within 3 metres of the victim, put the beacon to the ground and prepare to use the probe and shovel.
