This kit includes the tried-and-tested 3+ avalanche transceiver with patented smart avalanche technology, the ultra-light Badger aluminum shovel and the ALU 240 avalanche probe with quick-lock tensioning system. There’s also a safety academy guide book which explains the ground rules and reveals a great deal of background information on the complex topic of avalanches with the goal of preventing the need to use the transceiver, probe, and shovel in the first place.
Ortovox Avalanche Transceiver 3+
With the 3+, you’ll be in charge of the situation! The patented smart antenna technology with intelligent position detection automatically switches to the best transmission antenna so that you are easier to find. We never compromise when it comes to searching, either. The 3+ is equipped with all of the features of a modern digital 3-antenna device. An illuminated real-time display provides information about direction, distance and number of victims buried. The patented circle display combined with intuitive search acoustics leaves no room for doubt when pinpointing victims. Once located, victims can flagged in the display. The movement-sensor-based secondary avalanche switchover offers additional safety. We’ve even thought of the future: The 3+ is update-compatible and is environmentally friendly thanks to requiring just one battery.
Ortovox ALU 240 avalanche probe
A rookie’s probe with quick-lock assembly system: the ALU 240 is reduced to the essentials. The quick-lock assembly system allows for quick and simple set up. It is therefore ready for use in just seconds, and can be collapsed and folded just as quickly. The tension can be set by simply turning the optimized adjusting screw. The large probe tip, which has a significantly larger diameter compared to the probe elements, ensures improved penetration. The low weight of just 200g is achieved by using aluminum with a diameter of 11mm. As with all our probes, the ALU 240 features easy-to-read depth markers, a clear 1-meter marker and an orange bottom segment to optimally adapt the shoveling strategy.
Ortovox Badger Shovel
This shovel is a super lightweight aluminum shovel with an ergonomic, hybrid grip for maximum power transmission! Its sizable blade volume of 2.5 liters is backed up by robust design, pronounced center ridge and high side walls for full rigidity. Non-slip grooves on the top edge of the blade provide adequate traction when wearing boots. A centering aid in the shaft socket facilitates rapid assembly.
