Ortovox App Features:
The Ortovox Diract Voice Transceiver comes with a Quick Access Carrying System. The device is Automatically Released upon opening and is immediately ready for use. An Extremely Tear-Resistant yet Elastic Body Connection (30kg tensile strength) prevents loss of the device when searching. As a backup, the RECCO® Reflector integrated into the carrying system further increases your chances of being found.
The Ortovox Badger Shovel comes with the same non-slip grooves, high side walls and centring aid in the shaft socket as the Beast, but the difference is in size.
This means that the Badger comes in at 85g lighter than its longer counterpart, although both shovels pack down to a length of 45cm for your backpack when travelling.
Although slightly shorter and lighter it still has the same blade volume (2500cm cubed) but has a shaft that is 16cm shorter than the Beast.
The Ortovox 240 Alu Probe is a simple but effective choice from the ORTOVOX range.
This 240 cm probe comes with quick lock assembly system and Aramid tensioning cord, to ensure it is as strong and efficient as possible.
Aramid is a heat-resistant fibre of incredible strength and durability, all of which it combines with a very lightweight.
The 11mm diameter and 43cm fold-away size ensure that the probe takes up as little space as possible when stowed.
Weighing only 200g, the probe comes with a specially-designed quick-lock tensioning system so that users can deploy it with maximum speed and efficiency.
