In skiing regions, avalanches are one of the most common causes of fatalities. Should you find yourself in such a situation, time is of the essence. Avalanche victims can often suffer serious injuries or broken bones due to falls and are unable to help themselves out. The general rule is: the faster those affected are found, the higher their chance of survival. The right equipment saves lives! The Pieps Micro avalanche transceiver is the smallest, lightest and most intuitive 3-antenna-beacon in the Pieps product range. What's more, the device is extremely robust, resistant, lightweight and waterproof. It has a maximum, circular reception range and starts to vibrate at initial detection. This allows focus to be shifted to the visual surface search during the signal search. The sensor technology enables easy, intuitive handling. Following a prolonged period of inactivity, it automatically switches from search mode to transmit mode. The wide range and the technical details make Pieps avalanche transceivers the perfect aid in the search for victims. They work perfectly under extreme temperature conditions from -20 to +45ºC. For all lovers of the great outdoors who are out and about in the mountains, Piep avalanche transceivers offer you the best possible support.
Avalanche transceivers are very handy and can be easily attached to a rucksack or your functional clothing. In the event of an accident, every second counts. Even if you get nervous, the intuitive handling of the device means that you can't go wrong. These robust avalanche transceivers work in any weather and even after a fall.
