The Barryvox S is the new top of the line Avalanche Beacon from Mammut. It comes with all of the reliability and performance of the old Mammut Pulse beacon that guides and rescuers have trusted for years. But with the addition of a few key enhancements.
The Barryvox S is a 3 antenna Beacon that is operable in both Digital and Analog modes, giving you more control over how you search. It has a huge receiving bandwidth and allows the user to use larger search strips, up to 70m.
Smart Search is a new function that provides simple, clear instructions to follow for a rescue. It definitely doesn't replace the need for proper training but helps remind you of how quickly you should be moving and what to do next should you forget. It also interacts with other Barryvox S searchers in order to improve group searchability.
While a number of features that differentiate the Barryvox S from the simpler Barryvox are largely for pro-level use. There are a handful of benefits for casual users as well: a bigger screen, Smart Search & dynamic screen icons that step you through a search.
Please note that the Barryvox S beacons that we receive are specific to the US/Canada/NZ, and the W-Link operates on a band specific to those locations that are not suitable for use in Japan or Europe. If you intend on using your Barryvox S in those locations, there are W-Link features that must be turned off. These features do not affect the traditional Search/Send features that operate on a 457 kHz band worldwide.

Any defective items that are still within the manufacturer’s warranty period will be returned to the manufacturer or their local agent for warranty assessment.
The manufacturer or their local agent has sole discretion in determining whether an item is defective and qualifies for a replacement.
Be sensible – if you slide rails or hit rocks, your skis aren’t going to get replaced.
Chips to the edges of a ski's topsheet & topsheet peeling caused by skiing with your feet close together or banging your skis together on a lift are not covered by warranty.
Luggage: Please note that luggage warranties specifically refer to manufacturing defects, not damage sustained during travel. For example a tear in the fabric isn't covered, but a burst seam or defective zip is.
Airline policies differ, but generally require you to report damage sustained to your luggage either at the airport or within 1-3 days of your flights in order to receive compensation.
Too big, too small, not stoked on the colour? No worries!
If you are not happy with your product purchased from aussieskier.com you can return, subject to the below conditions, within 30 days of purchasing your item. First step is to lodge an RMA request on our Return Portal
