Pieps Freeride Beacon
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a pretty sweet little beacon but only appropriate sometimes. Wicked for a rando/skimo race where you are usually just carrying a beacon for show. It is about as light as it gets. Not something I would ever want to have to use to search for a buddy though. The single antenna does NOT give directional signals like a multi antenna unit. Getting spotted by guides in a helicopter or racing on piste? This is a great unit. Out with buddies on a high avy day and the chance you might be part of a search - not my first (or second) choice.
