Hey folks, welcome to a belated, yet very sweet perk for all the MSC Members out there. Here's the deal, we have teamed up with a new member Everest Sports to offer you guys the PRO DEAL rates on all the Ortovox Avalanche Safety gear. These guys don't mess around and usually for all of us down under this kit is pretty price prohibitive. Then when you read through the details on the transceiver, this isn't the stuff to be buying the cheapest option, like how they save morelives, quicker etc. This really is a very generous offer from Everest Sports and Ortovox... Check out the Ortovox website if you need more info.
In the interest of transparency here is the Australian Price list Winter 17/18, just to be clear MSC isn't making any money off members. It is in our interest to promote alpine safety for the user group community. These items are at cost price or less.
We are combining our top products into one set. Packaged together in a high-quality box, the decision is easy: The AVALANCHE TRANSCEIVER 3+, the BEAST avalanche shovel, and the 240 LIGHT PFA avalanche probe. The included SAFETY ACADEMY GUIDE BOOK explains the ground rules and reveals 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.
The Zoom+ avalanche rescue kit gives beginners an economical way to escape the hustle of the slopes and discover the backcountry air. We 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 S1+ combines the success stories of two unique avalanche transceiver innovations: the display showing the relative position of avalanche victims and the SMART-ANTENNA-TECHNOLOGY™! Handling the device is more intuitive than ever. Once switched on, it transmits, but when opened up it switches straight to search mode. The illuminated 360° Real-Time-Display shows the position in the avalanche and gives unmistakable action instructions. As soon as the person searching begins the pinpoint search, the patented circular display and intuitive search acoustics help the location process.
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. We make no compromises in terms of searching either. The 3+ is equipped with all the features of a modern, digital 3-antenna device.
The ZOOM+ combines the simple handling with modern technology and the 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.
The ALU 320 + PFA is our stable, extendible aluminum probe with PFA assembly system. It has the same features as our ALU 240 PFA probe, but is 320cm long and extendible. The tip is also replaceable.
Thanks to the optimized PFA system, the ALU 320 + PFA is now MORE COMPACT while also offering better handling. The quick-assembly strap makes immediate opening and assembly possible in one motion. In order to determine burial depth and select an optimized shoveling strategy, all our probes have highly legible DEPTH MARKERS and a clear 1 METER MARKER. The bottommost segment in neon orange provides visual notification of the proximity of the buried person during shoveling. The ALU 320 + PFA’s new and improved RUBBERIZED GRIP also ensures safe, ice-free handling in all conditions.
n this latest iteration of an ORTOVOX classic we’ve used the most innovative materials available and cutting edge production methods to achieve the best weight-to-rigidity ratio possible. Stabilization ribs and high sidewalls give the anodized blade rigidity, while the integrated shaft socket makes it easy to pack. With the new quick-lock, the blade and the fluted telescoping shaft can be put together in one motion.
Tough mountaineering shovel with unique clearing function and practical D-grip! Our KODIAK shovel boasts the largest shoveling volume (3.1 liters) in our product line, so it can safely be called the fastest of the bunch. The blade is also extremely rigid (AL 6061 T6 is the perfect material for shovels), yet this tool is easy to pack and fits easily into any ORTOVOX backpack. Its cutting edge is sharpened and its upper edge is equipped with non-slip ridges. The shaft is oval (for greater rigidity) and has a telescopic, non-slip rubberized surface.
Compact, light, and with a wide range of possible applications, the BASE provides an entry point into the world of ORTOVOX avalanche airbags. The removable ABS airbag system M.A.S.S. (Modular Airbag Safety System) is a standard feature that enables the system to be adapted to prevailing conditions. With an anatomical shape and a lean silhouette, the BASE was designed especially for freeride tours and day ski tours. A TÜV-certified back protector can also be integrated for optimum protection. Comes complete with carbon bottle and full MASS unit.
