An affordable, high-tech beacon for everyone. The Pieps Freeride is a fully digital, single antenna avalanche transceiver designed for side-country and resort skiers who venture off the beaten path. Simple and easy to use. Small and lightweight. Never be without your Pieps.
The Pieps Freeride Avalanche Beacon is one of the most compact single-antenna transceivers on the market today. An easy-to-read LCD screen displays distance and dynamic field-flux strength to aid your search, and an accompanying acoustic signal allows you to look away from the beacon to scan the snow while you continue your search. As a single-antenna beacon, the Freeride offers a different style of search that takes more practice and experience than that of a beacon with two or three antennas. For those who use Pieps' iProbe smart-probe, this beacon offers the unique advantage of iProbe support. Once located with an iProbe, this beacon can be temporarily deactivated right from the probe to limit the number of signals in a multiple-burial search. Small, lightweight, and minimalist when it comes to features, this beacon is ideal for the fast-and-light backcountry skier or snowboarder who already has some search experience under their belt and little room or weight to spare.
