Consisting of an avalanche transceiver, a snow shovel, an avalanche probe, and a safety book, the Ortovox Avalanche Rescue Set ZOOM+ is a functional, cost-effective, all-in-one kit for mountain preparedness.
When seconds matter, the last thing you need is an overly-complicated avalanche tool. The Ortovox ZOOM+ transceiver delivers pinpoint performance in an intuitive, simple-to-use design. A large, easy-read LED display clearly communicates readings and switches between transmitting and searching with the flip of a switch. Higher-pitched and faster acoustic sounds send a clear alert when you are approaching an avalanche victim.
The lightweight (1 lb, 6 oz/625 g), collapsible Badger Shovel is ideal for mountaineering, winter explorations, or avalanche rescues. The aggressive, 2.5 liter-volume shovel is constructed of durable, powder-coated 5052 aluminum. High side walls and a tall center ridge maximize strength. Non-slip step grooves enable you to confidently drive the shovel with boot soles.
Lightweight (7.1 oz/200 g) and durable, the aluminum 240 Economic Probe is an effective, easy-to-use tool for avalanche rescues. Constructed of reliable aluminum and employing a collapsible design, the probe effectively balances price and performance. Markers on the shafts make it easy to read the depth of snow and a quick-release tensioning system makes it easy to assemble the probe and also allows it to pack down easily when not in use.
The included Safety Academy Guide Book explains much of the science behind avalanches and offers guidance on how to travel in the backcountry in a manner that hopefully ensures the transceiver, shovel, and probe aren’t ever called into rescue service.
NOTE: With the exception of the safety book, all components of the Avalanche Rescue Set ZOOM+ can be purchased individually.
