Ortovox have are combined three top products into one set: the AVALANCHE TRANSCEIVER 3+, the BADGER avalanche shovel, and the ALU 240 avalanche probe. The included SAFETY ACADEMY GUIDE BOOK explains the ground rules and provides a great deal of background information on the complex topic of avalanches with the goal of preventing the need to use the transceiver, probe, and shovel in the first place.
With the 3+ you are in charge! The patented SMART-ANTENNA-TECHNOLOGY - with intelligent position recognition automatically switches to the best transmission antenna. You will be found easier. Ortovox make no compromises in terms of searching either. The 3+ is equipped with all the features of a modern, digital 3-antenna device. The illuminated real-time display tells you the direction, distance and number of victims. The patented circular display, combined with the intuitive search acoustics, leaves no doubt when operating in fine search mode. Once located, victims can be removed from the display using the flagging function. The motion-sensor-based follow-up avalanche switch-over ensures additional safety. Ortovox have also thought about the future: the 3+ can be updated and protects the environment with just a single battery.

The BADGER is a super lightweight aluminium shovel with an ergonomic, hybrid grip for maximum power transmission. Its sizable blade volume of 2.5 litres is backed up by robust design, pronounced centre 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.
A functional probe with quick-lock assembly system: the ALU 240 is reduced to the essentials. The quick-lock assembly system allows for quick and simple set up. It is 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 aluminium with a diameter of 11 mm.
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.
As with all Ortovox probes, this 240 cm-long model features a visual guide system with depth markers, a clear 1-meter marker and a practical quick-release cover.
VISUAL GUIDE SYSTEM
The intuitive visual guide system provides you with quick and clear information about the victim‘s depth at all times. You can perfectly ADAPT YOUR SHOVELING STRATEGY and save important time thanks to the clear 1 m marker, CONTRASTING DEPTH SCALE and COLOURFUL END SEGMENTS. The bottom-most segment in neon orange indicates when you are approaching the victim.
The quick-assembly strap makes immediate OPENING AND ASSEMBLY possible IN ONE MOTION, without first having to take the probe out of its cover.
