RECCO® EXPANDS ITS REACH BY EQUIPPING NEW SUMMER PRODUCTS WITH RECCO® TECHNOLOGY

The global RECCO® network is growing as top outdoor brands unveil new summer products featuring RECCO® technology at the OutDoor Show in Friedrichshafen on June 17-20.

Stockholm, Sweden–June 16, 2018–The worldwide RECCO® network is expanding as more and more brands announce new products for summer 2019 that adopt RECCO® rescue technology. Leading outdoor brands will be unveiling their latest outdoor equipment featuring RECCO® reflectors at the midsummer OutDoor Show in Friedrichshafen, Germany on June 17-20.

Based on technology to aid in avalanche rescue efforts, RECCO® is actively expanding its offering to summer-oriented activities such as mountain biking, hiking, trail running, paragliding, and alpinism.

The RECCO® Helicopter Detector enables rescuers to search and scan large areas from the air to locate missing persons equipped with RECCO® reflectors. The RECCO® Helicopter Detector was announced in 2015 and has been undergoing extensive development and implementation at heli bases in Switzerland, Italy, Sweden, and Norway. The technology is now in active service in Zermatt and the Valais region in Switzerland–as well as in the Dolomites and the Aosta Valley regions in Italy–with plans to expand to new regions.

“Each year we spend considerable resources on rescue missions looking for missing people. The RECCO® Helicopter Detector will be useful for those missions. For us, lost hikers, mushroom pickers, etcetera, in lower forest areas are a frequent problem,” -Adriano Favre, President of the rescue organization Soccorso Alpino Valdostano in Aosta Valley

Product highlights to be unveiled featuring RECCO® reflectors include the Haglöfs Grym Evo Jacket, a tough, technical, and environmentally friendly three-layer shell jacket. Mountain bikers will look forward to the POC TECTAL RACE SPIN, a helmet for enduro racing featuring a lightweight design. The Tatonka Kings Peak RECCO is a lightweight touring rucksack designed for backpacking and hiking. Paragliders will rejoice over the Skywalk CULT4 and RANGE X-ALPS2 harnesses, designed for performance and comfort in the air.

“At Haglöfs, we integrate RECCO® reflectors into our finest products that are designed for people who walk longer and climb higher because being exhausted can challenge our focus and increase the risk of being exposed to danger. RECCO® technology simplifies the work for the rescuers in the case of an accident, and at Haglöfs we care about the safety of our customers. When we find a technology that really works, the choice is easy.” -Robert Olsson, Senior Designer at Haglöfs.

In addition to this wide range of upcoming outdoor products, leading brands such as Ortovox, Grivel, Ferrino, Montura, Bergans, Beal, Boeri, Frauenschuh are also integrating RECCO® technology into their upcoming product lines.

Electronic gadgets including video cameras interfere with Avalanche Beacons

Before you head out, find out what electronics interfere and which ones you should leave in the car or turn off.

This video popped up the other day: Transceiver / Go Pro Interference. It shows a video camera affecting an avalanche beacon. If you wear a beacon, and you should, in or out of bounds, you should know which of your electronics may affect your beacon.

Transciver Interference

Dale Atkins, an Avalanche Guru and Recco’s Training and Education Manager for North America told me:

English: Rescuer using RECCO R9 detector on tr...

GoPros cause grief to some transceivers (and probably to all), but this is not a surprise, and it’s not the fault of the transceiver companies. All electronic devices generate electromagnetic fields. The problem is more noticeable with GoPros (and likely with other movie cameras, too) than with our cell phones or radios because communication devices have shielding. GoPros, iPods, power lines, ski lift motors, thunderstorms, etc. do not.

These electronic devices (and phenomena) rarely cause problems for a sending transceiver, and typically only a few centimeters of separation are enough. However, receive is another story. Transceiver companies have for a number of years recommended one separate electronic gear from their receiving transceiver by 30 centimeters. However, over the years this “electronic” gear was usually shielded communication devices, so the 30 cm distance was more than sufficient. However, now with other electronic gizmos, like GoPros that are “on” (powered) all the time, I suspect we’ll see a new recommendation from the transceiver companies. It might say something to the effect that these devices be turned off and removed off the searcher. However, that’s my guess.

Reccois a non-beacon avalanche search device. The handheld device locates buried victims based on a small bar that is usually sewn into their clothing. If you are

looking for ski or mountaineering clothing, I would suggest you look for something that has the Recco Reflector sewn in and a Recco hangtag.

So?

If you ski wearing a beacon, you should pay attention to what is going on with all the battery operating devices you carry.

If you are an Avalanche Beacon manufacturer, you should probably put a notice or warning in your instructions to let people know of the risks.

Best of Outdoor Retailer and SIA

The best is always the people. However I found some interesting products

12 days, 8 days of exhibit hall, 3 days of on-snow demos and another tradeshow season comes to an end.

Here’s a quick rundown of what I saw that I liked.

Slide On for ski boots: This product makes putting your ski boot on a breeze. From the maker of the Booster Power Strap. If you ski and you aren’t using the Booster Power Strap, try and get off the bunny slope and give them a try.

Nargear: Not a lot of bells and whistles, just make to take your gear and keep it in one bag, no matter how far you throw it.

Snow Angel: No I don’t wear women’s clothing, but this stuff is beautiful. Feels good too. You are on your own for finding out how technical it is.

MIPS: If you need a helmet for any sport that is not a DOT helmet, get one with MIPS inside. It may make the difference

Kali Helmets: Don’t like MIPS, Kali is coming up with some new ideas in helmet technology that will change the way helmets perform.

Protect Helmets: nothing new as far as the helmet goes, but they have the Recco chip in the helmet.

Bern Hard Hat: I’ve told you a thousand times A new idea that makes sense in helmets: the Bern Hard Hat

Ski Retriever: Skiing Powder all the time and don’t like leashes, try technology to not lose a ski.

Fox 40: Fox had mouth guards at the ski show. See A helmet manufacture understands the issues

UClear: I’ve not tested it but if the ear phones eliminate the wind noise and the microphone eliminates all noise, these will be great for people who move

Loki: Did you ever have a coat that you grabbed when you weren’t sure, but when in doubt you always grabbed it. Loki makes coats, sweatshirts and accessories, all that serve multi purposes.

Orthahell Sandals: Ever put something on your feet and have your feet put a smile on your face. In a sandal even.

Suunto: Supposedly they have a new watch that works, by that I mean won’t break in 60 days. We’ll see. Heck, the PR team is beautiful……

Timex: Hard to read, harder to understand how it works, but as John Cameron Sayze used to say, it takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’

Eton: A product that made me go wow. Solar powered stereo that you can Bluetooth from your phone or MP3. No need to add songs to another device. Don’t know if it can take the outdoor beating, but works great indoors.

Replay: video camera a little larger than a roll of quarters, but not much larger

Hyalite Equipment: New name, old company solid great gear, bags, pads and bike gear

The Dry Guy: If you don’t own something from the Dry Guy, you are skiing with wet gloves and boots. The latest is a heater & dryer for boots, the Turbo Dryer that can work off your car. Warm boots when you put them on to ski after driving to the resort. Wonderful.

I have a lot more stuff to let you know about, but some I want to make sure the marketing matches reality.
