ARVA Neo Avalanche Beacon

ARVA Neo Avalanche Beacon

Beacon features like effective multiple burial recognition and W Link have gotten a lot of play recently, often overshadowing what might still be a transceiver's most important feature: range. With the 60m search bandwidth of the Neo Avalanche Beacon, Arva is putting the focus back on signal distance, without foregoing other seriously important beacon technologies. Having a beacon is no guarantee of backcountry safety, and having an increased range doesn't change that. What range can do is save you some of the back and forth searching that comes with shorter range beacons and large, spread out debris fields, shaving valuable minutes off of search times and potentially saving lives. The Neo achieves its field leading range by ensuring that two of its three antennas possess virtually equal receiving power, which ensures a stronger signal reception than traditional beacons, which rely primarily one one antenna to receive distant signals and only engage multiple antennas when you begin to zero in on your target. The Neo isn't a one trick range pony, either. Group check mode indicates if your partners' beacon is transmitting correctly, before heading out. It also has the ability to recognize and flag up to four burials, while indicating if there are more, and a U turn alarm that indicates if you are moving away from a burial during a search. The Neo is prepared for secondary slides, too, as it has a timer that will automatically switch the beacon back to transmit mode after a given amount of time, ensuring that a searcher will not get buried and have a beacon that's stuck in search mode. It won't replace training and sound decision making, but the Neo has the tools to help bail you out in a serious backcountry emergency.
