Ortovox - Avalanche Rescue Set Zoom+
The Zoom+ avalanche rescue set gives beginners an economical way to escape the hustle of the slopes and discover the backcountry air. Ortovox chose the components to be highly intuitive so they can be easily mastered even in stressful situations. The included Safety Academy Guide Book explains the ground rules and reveals a great deal of background information on the complex topic of avalanches to help ensure that the transceiver, probe, and shovel are not even needed in the first place.
The ZOOM+ combines the simplest handling with the latest technology and the most advanced design. Reduced to two functional buttons, the ZOOM+ concentrates on intuitive usability. The focus on the clearly designed LED-display is on the on / off switches and the switch between transmitting and searching. Distances, directional arrows and information about several avalanche victims guide you in the fastest way to the refined search area, with the intuitive search acoustics making victims easier to locate. Equipped with the patented SMART-ANTENNA-TECHNOLOGY, avalanche victims are found much better with the ZOOM+. The device analyzes its position in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transmission antenna. The latest digital 3-antenna technology is incorporated into all Ortovox beacons, as is the automatic switch over function in case of a follow-up avalanche.

The BADGER is a super lightweight aluminum shovel with an ergonomic, hybrid grip for maximum power transmission. Its sizable blade volume of 2.5 liters is backed up by robust design, pronounced center ridge and high side walls for full rigidity. Non-slip grooves on the top edge of the blade provide adequate traction when wearing boots. A centering aid in the shaft socket facilitates rapid assembly.
The ALU 240 is reduced to the essentials. The quick-lock assembly system allows for quick and simple set up. It is therefore ready for use in just seconds, and can be collapsed and folded just as quickly. The tension can be set by simply turning the optimized adjusting screw. The large probe tip, which has a significantly larger diameter compared to the probe elements, ensures improved penetration. The low weight is achieved by using aluminum with a diameter of 11mm.
As with all Ortovox probes, the ALU 240 features easy-to-read depth markers, a clear 1-meter marker and a neon orange bottom segment to optimally adapt the shoveling strategy.
