photo jeremy bernard photo jeremy bernard know-how avalanche equipment mammut has been working intensively on the topic of “safety in the mountains” for years and is doing everything in its power to reduce the risks associated with mountain sports to promote this aim we are developing new products that set milestones in terms of innovation and safety we also support prevention and training projects around the world and under the “mammut safety” banner mammut has committed to increasing the safety of snow sports by means of continuous improvements in equipment specific training and transmission of knowledge photo thomas senf mammut is now offering all snow sports enthusiasts the highest safety standards with an avalanche transceiver a probe a shovel and an avalanche airbag in an emergency situation the combination of these four pieces of safety equipment allows fast and efficient location and rescue the right equipment and improved expertise will bring you even

shovel rescue airbag prevent robust shovel blade made from strong anodized aluminum simple and safe thanks to simple physical principles and intuitive operation ergonomic efficient shoveling thanks to the cleverly shaped handle light with new carbon cartridge from approx 2.1 kg efficient torsional forces are absorbed by the triangular shaft removable a single airbag system for different backpack

mammut barryvox® avalanche transceiver easy fast and effective easy operation thanks to a fully graphic display and clear user navigation with acoustic support the reverse direction function prevents 180° search errors while a “mark” function makes it easy to record found buried subjects location is extremely fast and accurate thanks to a 360° display and three antennas for easy fine searching manual scrolling guarantees an overview of distance direction and the number of buried subjects in the relevant list fast accurate marking for multiple buried subjects saves you time speed is the most important survival factor in the event of burial real-time direction display digital signal processing in the event of multiple buried subjects intelligent group test and an additional communication channel w-link for better search results also increase

digital signal processing dsp rapid signal recognition and long digital range with direction and distance display as well as 457 khz and w-link signal pattern recognition for quick and reliable recording of multiple buried subjects in a list multiple buried subjects intelligent search audio-supported fine searching in a cross bracketing is simplified by using arrows these clearly show on the display the direction to walk in based on the distance and signal information in relation to the avalanche transceiver the device helps users by means of information regarding when to change search direction and the optimum transition from fine searching in a cross bracketing to probing pinpointing photo marc van swoll the starting point for guided fine searching dynamically adapts to the depth of the avalanche and the device guides the user based on the remaining distance to the buried subject using one or more processes of fine searching in a cross bracketing pattern recognition is used to

mammut avalanche airbag more safety in the mountains an avalanche airbag is part of your avalanche equipment and should always be used in combination with an avalanche transceiver a shovel and a probe mammut offers two airbag systems the removable airbag system r.a.s and the new protection airbag system airbag systems increase the chance of staying on the surface of the avalanche and allow faster location in the event of burial however airbags do not prevent avalanches so never expose yourself to high risk even with an airbag burial by an avalanche is always a life-threatening situation regardless of your equipment effect and operation of an avalanche airbag the effect of an avalanche airbag is based on the physical principle of “inverse segregation” this sorting effect means that in an equally moving mass of particles the smaller particles gravitate to the bottom while the larger ones rise to the surface the avalanche airbag increases the wearer s volume significantly
