Package Product information
BCA DTS Tracker 2
The Tracker 2 offers the industry's fastest, most precise pinpointing, triple antennae, instantaneous real time display and the same easy-to-use interface as Tracker DTS.
An intuitive mechanical search/transmit switch makes it easier to use "out of the box".
The Tracker 2 is very slim and lightweight, in fact 23% lighter than the Tracker DTS. The switch to go into search mode is very easy to use and the speed of picking up a transmitting transceiver is superb.
Multiple burial victim lights and three antennae make this transceiver a sophisticated and reliable piece of equipment for any avalanche rescue team.
The pulse rate of information received takes you straight to the victim in record time and there is no time lag in information due to the super fast processor.
Terrawest Core Shovel
The Terrawest Core Shovel is a light, extremely practical shovel with a great strength-to-weight ratio, built for use by all off-piste skiers or back-country expeditions.
This is an all Aluminium shovel that is collapsible into 3 parts for efficient transport, or 2 parts for fast assembly in an emergency.
The telescopic function also means that the shovel can be used at full length, for maximum power, or at a shorter length for the greatest possible efficiency of movement in tighter spaces.
A classic T-Style grip means this shovel is easy to use and a strong, anodized Aluminium (6061), means the blade will not fail, regardless of load or conditions.
Ortovox Carbon 240 PFA Probe
Familiar to rescue organizations and professional mountain guides, the extendable quick-release tensioning system of the 240 Carbon Probe enables efficient utilization and collapse in a matter of seconds.
The large arrow probe head exceeds the diameter of the extended freeze-resistant carbon probe line allowing it to be retracted with ease.
The steel cable pull line makes it ideally suitable for frequent users in addition to the comfortable EVA foam grip sleeve.
The clearly marked burial depth markers can be read quickly.
Carbon has an extremely low relative thermal conductivity freezing level.
PFA tensioning system: PFA stands for ‘Patented Flash Assembly’ and therefore reliable tensioning within seconds and just as quick release and folding.

"What are the differences between the BCA Tracker 1, Tracker 2 and Tracker 3”
Tracker 1 uses 2 antenna. The Tracker 2 and Tracker 3 use 3 antenna. The 3rd antenna is used during the last stage of the search to pin point the accuracy by the distance indication, which eliminates the "null spot/spike" that occurs when the receiving antenna is perpendicular to the flux field direction. This will make the Tracker 2 appear much smoother in the final search stage. The Tracker 3 operates the same 3 antenna system as the Tracker 2 but is almost 30% faster.
The antenna in the Trackers 2 + 3, immediately on start up and then periodically once switched on, balance themselves against each other whilst taking into account temperature to make the directional information more accurate.
The Real Time Display on the Trackers 2 + 3 processes the input signal instantly and updates the display at the same time. This is to prevent users overshooting the target transceiver as they tend to move faster when they get near the target.
During Signal Lock-On, the Tracker 1 displays all signals received within 10 metres and then locks onto the strongest signal and hides the others. The Trackers 2 does this from any distance and will only ever guide you to the strongest signal (i.e. the closest). You can override this by going into special mode however, and the Tracker 3 has extra options of suppressing any of your multiple burial signals in any direction or distance.
The Trackers 2 + 3 have a multiple burial light that comes on to alert you that although you are only seeing one transceiver, there are multiple signals present. If the light is flashing (in time with the beeps) it means the Tracker believes these signals are very close together.
The reception range of the Tracker 2 is greater by 10m that that of the Tracker.
The Tracker 2 + 3 are also quicker to put back into transmit mode in the case of a secondary avalanche.
The Tracker 3 is 30% lighter, smaller and faster than the Tracker 2.
