Nobody has time for a complicated beacon when riding in avalanche-prone terrain. Keep things simple to get them safe and use the ARVA all-digital Evolution 3+ Avalanche Beacon for quick recovery. When you clip on this lightweight, compact device it never feels like a burden, and with three antennas, and an easy-to-decipher display you're fully armed in the event of a slide. An average digital search band width of 40m lets you sweep the debris field without missing a signal, while its LCD display uses arrows and distance values to guide you to the buried signal as well as give you updates on your battery status. The beacon also detects multiple victims and lets you mark them as you locate them and move on to the next signal. Four batteries that last 250 hours add further simplicity for quick readiness.
