Product Info

Super simple. Super small. Super Sweet. The Ortovox Zoom Avalanche Beacon is a new three-antenna transceiver that incorporates high-end range and processing in a minimalist package with a super simple two button interface. With a streamlined set of functions that provide little in the way of distractions, and coming in at a very attractive price point for a 3 antenna beacon, the Zoom will appeal to both newcomers and backcountry veterans who value compact simplicity.

Self TestThe Zoom runs a self test when turned on and continues to monitor itself while being used.

Smart Antenna TechnologyIntegrated Smart Antenna Technology analyzes the position of the victim's transceiver and automatically switches to the best transmission antenna - the result is 43% longer range in the worst transmission area.

WarningWearing an avalanche beacon is no guarantee of survival in an avalanche. Backcountry travelers are highly advised to educate themselves in snow stability assessment, route finding, and companion rescue and carry all of the conventional avalanche gear in addition to a beacon.

      Comments about Ortovox Zoom Avalanche Beacon:

      This beacon is super simple to operate. It encourages good technique by reducing the amount of input from the user. Automatic flagging for multiple burials. Automatic revert to transmit mode when stationary for a long period. It's also a fair bit smaller than the BCA tracker models making it easier to carry and hold. The included harness seems adequate and the instructions are clear.
