Quick OverviewVery small, compact beacon for advanced users
The Pieps Freeride is a full digital 1-antenna avalanche transceiver that supports the iPROBE's ability for temporary deactivation. Simple to use, the Freeride is small, light and dynamic, a perfect solution for the backcountry rider or skier who doesn't want to carry a lot of extra weight. The Freeride is an excellent choice for backcountry experts doing activities like A/T ski racing.
The Freeride should only be used by advanced transceiver users, as it lacks a directional indicator and has one antenna, requiring advanced search techniques. This is not a beacon designed for beginners.
