In 1980, the F2 was developed, a 2-frequency avalanche victim search system. This was followed by a line of innovations, notably the F1 Focus (1994), which was a huge success and the best-selling transceiver in the world . In 2010, the 3+, with Smart Antenna technology which eliminates bad coupling positions and simply allows for a faster rescue, until reaching the pinnacle of technology, the Diract Voice which carries with it a voice navigation, a first!
Obviously merino wool has not been left behind during all these years, ORTOVOX has also developed products designed to make comfortable mountain outings by facing even extreme temperatures. They released in 2013, the Merino Guardian Shell which takes comfort to the next level by coupling a highly durable and waterproof 3-layer construction with merino wool to achieve a breathable and comfortable interior.
The back panel is an important part of the backpack and comfort and ORTOVOX knows it. In fact, on the PEAK model, they compressed merino wool to get a very breathable bag with perfect moisture management, offering a dry comfortable feel. In terms of backpacks, they have developed their own AVABAG airbag system and more recently, in partnership with Arc'teryx, the LiTRIC technology which ensures an electronic system weighing just 1100g and a total of 2 triggers per charge.
