    Stay safe in the backcountry, but bring a beacon just in case.

    It's tough to beat the odds—if you spend a significant amount of time in avalanche terrain, the chances are pretty good you'll be involved in a slide, whether as a victim or a rescuer. There's a whole lot you can do to minimize your chances of being caught, and while an avalanche beacon won't prevent accidents, it will increase your chances of being found or finding a victim before it's too late. The Pieps DSP Pro is designed for skiers and snowboarders who spend serious time in relatively high-risk areas and need a beacon that's fast, accurate, and easy to use.

    The Pro has a simple two-button interface that gives you only the options you need for fast and effective performance—send, search, scan, and flag. Just slide the side switch to toggle between transmitting and receiving and mark burials using the flag button. When you've flagged a signal, the three antennas automatically switch to the nearest unflagged signal for streamlined searching. The Pro has a 60m circular search range and a smart transmitter that, during a burial, automatically switches to the antenna with the clearest broadcasting range, minimizing dead spots and signal traps that can drastically reduce a beacon's effectiveness. It also ensures that its signal isn't overlapping with any other transmitting beacons, minimizing misleading signals and indirect search paths.

    Designed to keep things simple and efficient, the Pro has a distance readout, a directional arrow, multiple-burial indicators, and a battery-life display, which provide all the necessary information without cluttering the screen. The Sport is also compatible with the Pieps iProbe to reduce search time even further, particularly in a multiple-burial scenario, and has a built-in inclinometer to help you assess slope angle. There are also available software updates to keep your beacon up-to-date, and it will work with older beacons regardless of the software installed.

    Although beacons are pretty awesome, please remember that they are NOT a guarantee that you will survive an avalanche; get educated, learn to use your tools, travel with trusted partners, and be smart out there.

    Quality Beacon

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    The peeps dsp pro beacon is by far the easiest beacon I've ever had to deal with. With its three entena technology that allows for quicker pinpoints thus making faster rescues; it's what every backcountry enthusiast should have on them. Its been tried and true to its word about being fast and durable. The battery last a long time and it has one of the largest ranges on the market. I wouldn't consider getting anything else.

    Great Features

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    -comes with a harness, but I recommend putting it in your pant pocket instead(if you have room), it comes with a wrist strap that should be put on if you go the pocket route



    -can be set to return to send mode after not moving for a certain amount of time, useful if you get caught in a 2nd wave avalanche while rescuing



    -3 antennae system allows for a signal to transmit even while buried in a scorpioned position with your arms dislocated



    -picked up a signal from 54 meters with the long antennae



    -picked up a signal from 22 meters with the short antennae



    -once within 2 meters of buried friend the lag becomes noticeable between the receiver and the screen, you have to move slow to pinpoint location (this is the case with all digital transceivers as far as I can tell)



    -arrows are very accurate, and have slight enough variations to keep you on the correct path so that overcorrections are not an issue



    -off/send/search switch has a lever that has to be depressed so the switch can not accidentally be changed in your pocket/harness



    -screen can be hard to read if you are wearing polarized glasses

    You don't have to be a pro to love it!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have worn it several times in the Wasatch and done some beacon drills with it, but luckily have not had to use it the way it was intended yet. For being so simple, this beacon has a ton of awesome features. I love that you can hold down the search button in send mode and it pulls up an inclinometer you can use to gauge the terrain. The multiple burial function is also very reassuring, as much as I would hope to never have to use it. The beacon harness is lightweight and very comfortable over my base layer, as I did not notice it all day after zipping up my shell and putting on my pack. The beacon itself is very easy to pull out of the harness and the tether that connects it to the harness is fairly long and stretchy, so you do not have to worry about losing it if you let go and you have plenty of mobility in case you really do need to use it in a rescue scenario. The off, send, and search modes are very easy to cycle through, but secure enough that you do not have to worry about accidentally turning off search mode when the beacon is harnessed. All in all, wearing a beacon for backcountry travel is a must, and the DPS Pro is a sure bet. Have fun and be safe out there!

    The new standard?

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Just replaced several year old Pulse. The features, size, ease of use, marketing of Black Diamond will surely make this the new standard. The harness is also very nice. Watch for it on sale, I picked it up for $299' no brainer. General impression is I like it better than the Pulse.

    Great features, small package.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This little guy goes unnoticed under your gear. Very comfortable yet easy to extract from its pouch when needed. The modes are pretty easy to cycle through and I love the integrated inclinometer. If you get one, convince your buddy to snag one too so you can get unburied quick!

    Great features, small package.

    Great Beacon, Easy to use.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I just got this beacon & love it so far. I had a few buddy's that swore by the previous model so I decided to upgrade from my old one. This Beacon has great range with lots of features. It's good with multiple burials & you can test other beacons to see if they are off & by how much. I like the harness and carrying case a lot as well, much more cumfy than my old beacon. I'm super stoked on this beacon!!!

    Good but the Tracker had better range.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    We used multiple beacons at a clinic early this season and found this beacon to preform well. We did notice that the range on the Tracker 2 was about 10 yards further out. Lots of features and it is fairly easy to use.
