Ortovox heritage comes from their products, they stand for maximum protection, simplicity, reliability and indefatigable pioneering spirit. For 37 years Ortovox has pioneered the avalanche transceiver market and enriched it with continual new technologies.
Since being founded in 1980, Ortovox has been one of the leading brands in backcountry safety equipment, producing the first avalanche transceiver to search and transmit of two frequencies and the first visual searching that soon became an industry standard.
Today Ortovox offers a complete safety setup, including backcountry transceivers, shovels, probes, and avalanche airbags systems. Although a lot has changed over the years within backcountry and avalanche safety, Ortovox has maintained themselves as the leading brand since their very first day on the market.
