Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Sadly, the technology to simply particle-beam you out of harm's way on the mountain doesn't exist yet, but Mammut offers the next best thing: the Element Barryvox Avalanche Beacon. The Element is the little brother of Mammut's famed Pulse beacon, and while it can't break down your cellular structure and reassemble you in safety, it does have a 50m search range and three digital antennas designed to make locating avalanche victims as easy as possible. It's also super intuitive and easy to use, with a one-button interface that eliminates confusion, audio cues, and a symbolic LCD display that shows and marks multiple burials (Another cool feature: there's an unmistakeable "U-Turn" signal that pops up if you're following a flux line in the wrong direction.) If a signal hasn't been received for eight minutes, the Element will revert to send, eliminating the chance that you forget to switch your beacon back to the appropriate mode. Every time you switch it on, it performs an automatic self-check, and also gives you option to perform a group check to make sure your companion's beacons are working properly. It's light, too, weighing just over seven ounces with batteries, so you won't feel like you have a computer strapped to your chest, a benefit that everyone from beginners to crusty vets can appreciate.
The Mammut Element Barryvox focuses on the essentials while maintaining the powerful capabilities of a three-antenna avalanche beacon. Easy to use with clear instructions so you don't have to think about how to use it in an already stressful situation. One-button operation and a clear display make this avalanche transceiver very user friendly. Signal analysis, listing of victims and a marking function make a crucial difference in a multiple-burial scenerio. Durable construction means this avalanche beacon won't let you down in a tough situation. Get the best technology in an affordable package with this Mammut Avalanche Beacon. Dimensions: 113 mm x 75 mm x 27 mm. Weight: 210g (incl. batteries). Batteries: 3 AAA. Warranty: 5 years. 3 antenna. Range: 60 meters. Developed and produced in Switzerland
