“Small but powerful”
…that is the tagline Arva is using for its brand new Arvo 5. Tipping the scales at just 170g and with a slim, pocket-friendly profile (11cm by 7cm), it is the most compact and lightweight avalanche rescue transceiver the French company has ever made in its 35 years.
Miniature it may be, but it still packs a punch in terms of performance with a triple antenna (for faster, easier and more efficient search times), 50-metre search strip width, multiple burial indicator (3+), mark function, an automatic revert-to-transmit mode (in case of a second avalanche), plus an extra large, backlit screen. All operated by a single AA battery.
Clever stuff, Arva.
