A high performance avalanche beacon outfitted with all the features needed for fast, accurate searches in the event of a slide, the BD Recon BT/PIEPS Powder BT Avalanche Beacon features Bluetooth capabilities, an updated user interface and clear blue housing. The beacon’s Bluetooth connection allows you to manage settings and software updates from your smartphone, while the redesigned housing features soft-touch contact points for improved handling. With a 60-meter circular range, three antennas for pinpoint search accuracy, a self-check function for always-accurate antennas and Digital Signal Processing to account for wayward beacon signals, the Powder BT is the go-to beacon for serious backcountry travelers. The included harness-style carrying pouch provides comfortable, streamlined storage and fast removal for beacon practice and emergency response.
