    Barryvox S Beacon

    Compared to the standard Barryvox, Mammut's Barryvox S Beacon has more advanced features that appeal to experienced mountaineers, guides, and backcountry skiers and splitboarders. That's not to say this beacon is too advanced for beginners in the backcountry; on the contrary, it still features the same beginner-friendly interface (single switch, single button, and separate flagging button) that makes the standard Barryvox so easy to learn how to use. In fact, the Barryvox S features a smart search display with a dynamic icon that moves with you down slide paths and assists in proper probe planting to refine your avy techniques whether you're practicing or using what you practice for real emergencies.

    Along with this smart search display, the Barryvox S also shows a similar readout to the standard Barryvox, with distance, direction, and number of burial victims showing clearly whether you have goggles on or off. Since there's more information on the display, Mammut made this Barryvox S Beacon's screen slightly larger than the standard model. This model also accepts lithium batteries as well as alkaline, and lithium batteries have proven to last longer in harsher climates. For more advanced use, the Barryvox S can switch from digital to analog. Now both Barryvox beacons boast an extended 70-meter range, but in analog mode, this beacon can extend its range to 80 meters.

    Good, reliable beacon, advanced features

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a good beacon. I've used it in three Av courses and a bunch of backcountry treks. Advanced features but they don't get in the way. I wouldn't complain if they made it smaller, half the thickness would be awesome. Like any beacon, you have to train on its idiosyncrasies. One of this one is that you need to make sure you're not reading the bearing and distance faster than it can update, and when you get to the > 10m to < 10m threshold, you better go slow so the final bearing is right on, other wise the final search will take longer.

    Awsome Beacon!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great beacon for anyone looking to get into backcountry skiing. It is incredibly easy to use out of the box and as your skills progress you will be able to dive into more of the advanced capabilities. Also, I like how this beacon will switch from search to send after four minutes of inactivity.

    Easy to use.

      I wish I had loads to say about this beacon but in comparison to my tracker 2 that I used for the past few seasons its a bit more accurate in search mode. It has some pretty cool features by being able to mark multiple victims lock the location and then head towards the next.

      It has all the cool features but it is a great beacon for beginners because how user friendly it is

      the best beacon on the market

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Hands down, this is the best. It has all the bells and whistles. Its easy to use and sends out a reliable signal. Beacons are the pieces of equipment you never hope to use, but if yo have to use it you'll be glad to have this one strapped to your chest. your touring partners will be stoked too!

      All the bells and whistles

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      70M range, three antena, sinple user interface, alkaline batteries, and auto switch from search to send when it senses you haven't moved after 5 minutes. This beacon gives me all the tools to have a successful rescue, and the confidence that I can be found if I were to be burred initially, or even after a second slide.
      It's not about having the right gear, its about knowing how to use the gear you have. That being said, this beacon is top of the line so when you put in the time to become familiar with it, you'll be confident that you can make a difference.

      Even Better Than the Pulse

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      For the past three years, I used Barryvox Pulse. This year I upgraded to the Barryvox S. Here's what I've found so far:

      Simple to use out of the box or if you want to take advantage of the advanced menu functions, adjusting options is now a breeze.

      The button and menu set-up is only a little bit different but much more intuitive and easy to move through.

      During multiple burial scenarios, the S locks more quickly on the second/third burials signals after marking the previous one.

      The larger screen on the new S allows for helpful information icons and prompts to guide users through the search process.

      While the Barryvox Pulse is still a top-of-the-line beacon, if you're in the market for a new beacon, the “S” is a strong choice.

      way simpler than I thought

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Great beacon. Range is only a little longer than my Pulse, but a lot longer when the beacons aren't lined up exactly. The navigation is way easier than the pulse. The description makes it sound like this is only for advanced users, but really most of the features are useful for anyone and you dont need to do anything to use them, it's automatic. My buddy who is a beginner was doing 3-burial searches in under 5 minutes within one short parcitice session. The only thing that is for experienced people is the pro search, which is still easier than on my pulse, and anyone who is going to practice micro strips will want this.

      Unanswered Question

      Does it still detect if a victim is breathing? The old ones could detect micro movements.
