Safety in a set! Ortovox have combined their most popular products as a pre-packaged set and placed them in a high-quality box, to make your decision even easier. The 3+ avalanche transceiver, the Badger avalanche shovel and the 240 avalanche probe!

Transceiver

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 illuminated real-time display tells you the direction, distance and number of victims. The tendency 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 switchover ensures additional safety. We have also thought about the future: the 3+ can be updated and protects the environment with just a single battery.Effective use of a transceiver requires proper training and continuous practice. Always wear your transceiver next to your body under outer clothing. Carefully read the owners manual included with this transceiver. Always take a shovel and a probe when traveling in avalanche terrain and never travel alone.                                                                                       

3+ Smart Antenna
The 3+ has a position sensor, which can analyze the position of the device in the avalanche and switches to the best transmitting antenna. Worst coupling positions are thus eliminated.
3+ Fast Find
The presentation of the real-time display is limited to the essentials. It displays the distance and direction. Once you are in the refined search area, the displayed circle shows whether you are getting closer to the victim or moving away from him/her. Battery status and number of buried/marked victims appear small.
3+ Fine Search
In the refined search area, the patented circular display shows you whether you are getting closer to the victim or moving away from him/her in increments of 10 cm. The optimized, distinct search acoustics supports you in the search by pitch of the tone and volume.
3+ Easy Mark
The number of victims is shown in the display. With the "pin" key you can quickly and easily mark located victims and continue the search

Shovel

The Badger is a super lightweight aluminum shovel with an ergonomic, hybrid grip for maximum power transmission. The sizable blade volume of 2.5 liters is backed up by robust design, pronounced center 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.

Probe

The Alu 240 is reduced to the essentials. The quick-lock assembly system allows for quick and simple set up. It is therefore 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 of just 200g is achieved by using aluminum with a diameter of 11mm. The Alu 240 features easy-to-read depth markers, a clear 1-meter marker and an orange bottom segment to optimally adapt the shoveling strategy.
