Mirage Recco XT

RECCO® is a search & rescue aid for mountaineers that have become lost in a storm, disorientated in the mountains or in a deep forest, fallen in a crevasse or have become avalanche victims.
It is simple technology that requires no maintenance, battery or switch.
It has an infinite lifetime and its performance does not degrade over the time.
The RECCO® system is based on a radar technology:
A transmitter device sends out a signal, which is sent back by your RECCO® reflector to allow you to be located accurately.
In the Alps (D/A/CH/FR/IT), Scandinavia (SE/NO) and in more than 700 ski resorts worldwide, air based rescue teams are equipped with a RECCO® SAR1, an ultra-high performance radar fixed beneath a helicopter allowing them to cover a lot of ground in minimal time. With a range of 300m, the rescue helicopter can cover 1km² in 90 seconds, the equivalent of a football pitch per second.


Why does Beal use RECCO® on harnesses?


While skiing, alpine climbing, ski-mountaineering, you will always be wearing your harness. Your RECCO®-featured jacket might be in your backpack which in turn may get ripped off your shoulders by an avalanche or fall.
Using a harness with a RECCO® reflector in the mountains increases your chances of being found by the rescue teams.
