Ortovox heralds a new era in avalanche emergency equipment with the Diract Voice avalanche transceiver, the world’s first avalanche transceiver with voice navigation, and the company has managed to to score the coveted „Product of the Year“ award by ISPO Munich in the Snowsports category. The new device reliably guides the searcher quickly to the buried victim with clear and distinct voice commands in an emergency. The design is minimalistic and logical with only one control button, an extra-large display and a handy toggle switch to change between transmit and search mode. The transceiver is easy to operate even with gloves on. Other features of the 3-antenna device include integrated smart antenna technology, multiple burial marker functions and post avalanche protection. The Diract Voice also works with a rechargeable low-temperature battery and updates and configuration are done via the Ortovox app.The German mountain sports specialist won three other Ispo Gold Awards this year with the Free Rider backpack, the new Deep Shell freeride bip pants and the 3 Finger Glove Pro.
