Barryvox S Avalanche Beacon

  • Regular price $499.95


Mammut Barryvox was the first beacon I purchased and has also been the most reliable. It was the main reason I decided to add Mammut to the shop this season. A few things I look for in beacons is the search range, weight, and ease of use. The Barryvox exceeds the search distance of most other beacons, coming in at 70 meters. Switching from send to search mode is simple, and the display is easy to read. I generally wear this unit with the included harness but it will also fit in a pant pocket.
The Barryvox S version includes a few extra features, mainly it combines analog and digital antennae to increase search field to nearly 100m. I have yet to test this unit / feature.

Manufacturer's Features & Specifications: 

Digital/analog combo device with three antennas. The new Barryvox® S has a large receiving bandwidth and an effective search strip width of 70 meters. It offers users a large, simple interface and intuitive operation. The Smart Search function provides clear instructions thanks to a simple operating concept and quick, precise searching. The Barryvox® S includes the Rescue SEND function to protect non-searching rescuers. In the event of a secondary avalanche, the device automatically switches to SEND in order to locate buried rescuers. The Barryvox® S is also equipped with a Smart Search function, which interacts with the actions of searching rescuers.

  • Effective digital search strip width: 70 meters
  • Digital receiving range: 70 meters
  • Extended search range: extended receiving bandwidth (analog): up to 95 m; Extended search strip width (analog): 100 m
  • Circular receiving field: almost identical receiving range for X and Y antennas
  • Lithium-enabled: also works with lithium batteries: Less risk of leakage. More stable in low temperatures. Longer battery life (350 hours SEND)
  • Display: display with background lighting, very easy to read even when wearing polarized glasses
  • Acoustic search guidance: allows the rescuer to visually search the avalanche field
  • Reverse direction function to avoid 180-degree search errors
  • Group test with clear instructions
  • Visual interface: shows distance, direction and number of buried subjects
  • Design: ergonomic, impact-proof and break-proof. Can be operated while wearing gloves
  • Device tests: automatic self-test and function test
  • Smart search interacts with rescuer`s action during the search, making searching simpler and more reliable
  • Multiple buried subjects: digital signal processing in the event of several buried subjects
  • Buried subjects can be selected from a list, marked (MARK) and unmarked (UNMARK)
  • Automatic switching from send to search (Auto Revert): if a rescuer does not move for 4 minutes, we assume a secondary avalanche and the device switches to SEND mode (motion-sensor controlled)
  • Rescue SEND: Protective function for non-searching rescuers. In the event of a secondary avalanche it automatically switches to SEND to allow the rescuer to be located
  • Auto guidance: device continues to guide the rescuer to the buried subject in the event of signal failures or overlaps
  • Vital data: 3D sensor helps the rescuer concentrate his or her resources on the buried subjects with the highest chance of survival
  • Advanced search settings: individually configurable search settings: pro search, acoustic and visual guidance; automatic switching from search to send (Auto Revert)
  • Alternative search mode (analog mode) helps in resolving demanding search scenarios
