Description

The next-best thing to beaming up.

Sadly, the technology to simply particle-beam you out of harm's way on the mountain doesn't exist yet, but Mammut offers the next best thing: the Element Barryvox Avalanche Beacon. The Element is the little brother of Mammut's famed Pulse beacon, and while it can't break down your cellular structure and reassemble you in safety, it does have a 50m search range and three digital antennas designed to make locating avalanche victims as easy as possible. It's also super intuitive and easy to use, with a one-button interface that eliminates confusion, audio cues, and a symbolic LCD display that shows and marks multiple burials (Another cool feature: there's an unmistakeable "U-Turn" signal that pops up if you're following a flux line in the wrong direction.)

If a signal hasn't been received for eight minutes, the Element will revert to send, eliminating the chance that you forget to switch your beacon back to the appropriate mode. Every time you switch it on, it performs an automatic self-check, and also gives you option to perform a group check to make sure your companion's beacons are working properly. It's light, too, weighing just over seven ounces with batteries, so you won't feel like you have a computer strapped to your chest, a benefit that everyone from beginners to crusty vets can appreciate.

  • Three-antenna analog beacon with 50m search strip width
  • Multiple-burial recognition with flagging function
  • Simple one-button interface
  • Reverse direction "U-Turn" function
  • Automatically switches to send mode after eight minutes with no signal detected
  • Audio cues
  • Automatic self check
  • Group check feature

Good buy

This was my first beacon, and after taking an Avi 1 course with it, and doing all sorts of burial exercises I must say I'm happy with how it works. It's fast to get that first signal and the range is better than most BCAs. I got right on top of the "victim" every time without fuss. The tricky part is multiple burials. This just finds the closest victim . You must get with in say 3 meters to "check" that victim off. Would be nice if you could switch to the next closest burial if say, your other buddies are working on a closer one and you decide to find the next victim. Not huge deal, but something to be aware of if you're ever in that situation.

Favorite beacon I have used

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love the Mammut Element. My first beacon was a BCA Tracker and after using a few different models in an avalanche class a couple years ago I loved the Mammut Pulse. When it came time for me to get a new beacon I checked out a few similar options and settled on the Element. The search feature is extremely reliable, easy to use, and I have never had any issues with multiple burial situations. This is my second full season using the Element and I absolutely love it. Hands down, this is my favorite beacon on the market.

seriously superior

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

replaced my old Opto 3000 Barryvox with the Mammut Element. This is the easiest and quickest beacon to use. Great range and the marking feature is great. Very happy with the purchase. Love the harness also.
