Simplified and streamlined yet outfitted with all the features needed for fast, accurate searches in the event of a slide, the PIEPS DSP Sport Avalanche Beacon is as easy to use as it is powerful. With a 50-meter circular range, three antennas for pinpoint search accuracy, and a smart transmitter to aid in fast recovery, the DSP Sport is the go-to beacon for anyone venturing into the backcountry. The included harness-style carrying pouch provides comfortable, streamlined storage and fast removal for beacon practice and emergency response.
All of sudden, it seems, the backcountry is as accessible and popular as the taco joint down the street, and while sketchy tacos have their dangers (don't get the pescado especial), you're much more likely to get into a serious accident working your way down a gnarly line than sitting in a corner booth with a cerveza and a pile of carnitas. The Pieps DSP Sport Avalanche Beacon can't prevent accidents, but it will increase your chance of being rescued, or of rescuing someone else, when things go from fun to scary in the blink of an eye. As its name suggests, the DSP Sport is a trimmed-down version of the DSP Pro, with a super-simple one-button interface that gives you only three options--send, search, and flag. Just slide the side switch to toggle between transmitting and receiving, and mark burials using the flag button. When you've flagged a signal, the three antennas automatically switch to the nearest unflagged signal for streamlined searching. The Sport has a 50m circular search range and a smart transmitter that, during a burial, automatically switches to the antenna with the clearest broadcasting range, minimizing dead spots and signal traps that can drastically reduce a beacon's effectiveness. A simple, clear display makes the Sport easy to learn and even easier to use. It has a distance readout, a directional arrow, multiple-burial indicators, and a battery-life display, which provide all the necessary information without cluttering the screen. The Sport is also compatible with the Pieps iProbe to reduce search time even further, particularly in a multiple-burial scenario. There are also available software updates to keep your beacon up-to-date. Please remember, a beacon is NOT aguarantee that you will survive an avalanche; get educated, learn to use your tools, travel with trusted partners, and be smart out there.
The Pieps DSP Sport Beacon from Black Diamond is a standout beacon for the next generation of riders who require more informative displays, simplified interface controls and faster processing speeds than ever before. The DSP Sport gives you all that, including a 50 meter search strip, 200 hours of search, and SMART transmitter technology to reduce signal overlap.
