Arva Neo Avalanche Beacon -

Beacon features like effective multiple burial recognition and W-Link have gotten a lot of play recently, often overshadowing what might still be a transceiver's most important feature: range. With the 60m search bandwidth of the Neo Avalanche Beacon, Arva is putting the focus back on signal distance, without foregoing other seriously important beacon technologies.

Having a beacon is no guarantee of backcountry safety, and having an increased range doesn't change that. What range can do is save you some of the back-and-forth searching that comes with shorter-range beacons and large, spread-out debris fields, shaving valuable minutes off of search times and potentially saving lives. The Neo achieves its field-leading range by ensuring that two of its three antennas possess virtually equal receiving power, which ensures a stronger signal reception than traditional beacons, which rely primarily one one antenna to receive distant signals and only engage multiple antennas when you begin to zero in on your target.

The Neo isn't a one-trick range-pony, either. Group check mode indicates if your partners' beacon is transmitting correctly, before heading out. It also has the ability to recognize and flag up to four burials, while indicating if there are more, and a U-turn alarm that indicates if you are moving away from a burial during a search. The Neo is prepared for secondary slides, too, as it has a timer that will automatically switch the beacon back to transmit mode after a given amount of time, ensuring that a searcher will not get buried and have a beacon that's stuck in search mode. It won't replace training and sound decision-making, but the Neo has the tools to help bail you out in a serious backcountry emergency.


  • Adjustable marking range of 3 or 5 meters
  • U-turn alarm
  • IsoTech 3-antenna design
  • Audio cues
  • 60m range is among the best available
  • Marks up to 4 victims, indicates 4+
  • Backlit screen
  • Switches back to transmit automatically (programmable 2, 4, or 8 minute timer)
With some of the best numbers for range and search band width in the business and a 100% digital display for easy use, the Arva Neo Avalanche Beacon is an intuitive top-performer which will impress backcountry veterans and neophytes alike. Featuring Arva's Isotech Technology, a multiple victim marking function, bright screen technology for clear visibility in any light conditions, and an automatically timed revert to transmit mode function in case of a secondary avalanche, the Neo is always ready for the worst.

Arva Neo Avalanche Beacon Reviews:


I was able to test this beacon side by side other units last year and was impressed with its initial distance read and consistency and marking when searching for multiple beacons. Would definitely recommend this beacon to anyone I would go backcountry with.

The easy use of this is great. I'm impressed with it's range and accuracy. Stoked I made the jump to ARVA.
