“Easy to use. Form follows function. No explanation necessary. Under shock the DIRACT VOICE is self-explaining and guides you through the process. You don´t have to be a tech-freak to handle it. The highest rankings on the rating sheet are innovation and purpose, followed by functional design. A whole lot of points that lead into the right direction: The intelligent Battery warns you, when it needs service and the app contains lots of tutorials and ideas intended to educate people before they go off the slope.”

We asked the Brands a few questions about their product and their company. This is what they told us:

ORTOVOX is setting out on a new, innovate path: The DIRACT VOICE is the world‘s first avalanche transceiver with integrated voice navigation and will reliably and quickly guide you to your buried companion in an emergency. Clear, simple spoken instructions tell you what to do in every phase of your search and keep things calm when your partner’s survival is of the utmost importance. The display is exceptionally stable from first reception, which reduces stress in an emergency situation and helps speed up the search. The three-antenna device comes equipped with Smart-Antenna Technology, which analyzes the device’s location in the avalanche and automatically switches to the best transmitting antenna. This means you get up to double the range and will be found more quickly! Thanks to its streamlined, logical design, the DIRACT VOICE is intuitive and easy to use, because using just one button you can quickly flag burial victims or switch to standby mode. Secondary avalanche protection automatically switches from search-and-standby mode to transmit mode to guarantee the searcher full protection. Even in extreme light conditions, the full-graphic, extra-large screen is easy to read and, thanks to clear instructions and a 360-degree real-time display, ensures intuitive user guidance in stressful situations. This handy avalanche transceiver weighs in at just 210 grams, can be held securely when wearing gloves thanks to its rubberized grip zone, and fits easily into a hip pocket if it isn’t being worn in the quick-access carrying system which automatically pushes out the avalanche

"What MATERIALS is your product made off? "

N.A.

"Tell us more about your COMPANY / PRODUCT SUSTAINABILITY... "

COMPANY: All our sustainability efforts root within our company values and our sustainability strategy named ProtACT2024 with specific goals, that need to be achieved by 2024. Parts of the strategy include: nature protection and animal welfare (Ortovox Wool Promise), human protection (hold leader status with Fair Wear Foundation, Bündnis für nachhaltige Textilien), local uniqueness (local production, goad to keep 60% production in Europe), protect the mountains (climate protection, EOCA projects, Bundesverband Nachhaltige Wirtschaft e.V.), Chemical Management (100% PFC-free by 2024, adhere to Ortovox Guide to Chemical Mgmt), protection with sustainable innovations (longlivety, second hand, long product life cicle, repair service) 

PRODUCT: Made in Germany

"We know there are FUN FACTS and / or a BACKSTORY! Please share!"

Honestly, the idea first came about over a drink with colleagues and mountain guide partners at ISPO (laughs). Archimedes didn‘t have his eureka moment at his desk, but in the bathtub! But it was a long way from the idea to the first really well-functioning prototype and then to the final product. It took many months of development in the lab and tests in the snow.
