SKU: RD1006 Categories: , ,


The Renegade 2.0 and Renegade X were specifically designed from the ground up to withstand the harshest environments. By taking feedback on the original Renegade radio from snowmobile industry athletes and professionals such as Dan Adams, Matt Entz, the Boondockers, and many more, we created the X and 2.0 radio platforms. Thought was put into every element of the radio, from the button layout, the increased waterproofing and moisture proofing, user interface, and more, to make this the ultimate backcountry radio.

The entire inside face of the radio mic and speaker is sealed with a waterproof membrane to ensure the mic and speaker never freeze over. The PTT button is completely sealed so no moisture even on the coldest, deepest, wettest powder days will ever prevent the PTT button from functioning properly. Here at Oxbow, we take backcountry communication seriously, and we have created a serious radio to provide reliable communication no matter the conditions. We know that when you are in the backcountry, reliable communication can literally be the difference between life and death.

The Renegade 2.0 comes with our patented mounting system to securely attach the radio to any backpack shoulder strap. Additional mounting options are available to make sure that no matter the pack or avalanche vest, you have a mounting option to fit your needs.

The license free Renegade X radio has 22 channels with 121 sub-channels. The removable lithium ion battery and power saver technology provides for 36+ hours of use. Transmitting at the U.S. legal limit of 2 watts, the radio has line-of-site range of 25+ miles and a backcountry range of 1-5 miles. The radio also has a VOX (voice activation).

Backed by a 2 year warranty, we stand by our products.

    Find out this winter how good this radio is.

  2. James

    Battery life is amazing range is amazing and clear easy to program. Lite and easy to mount to straps on the backpacks. Turn on and off with gloves on. talk with gloves on easy push to talk button.

  3. Shelley

    Love the durability of this product! It took a pretty hard hit riding sleds and it still works like a charm. Super easy to change channels too!

  4. Nina

    My absolute favorite radio. Easy to set radio channels. Longest lasting battery on one charge. Doesn’t freeze even when packed with icy snow. Incredible range and clear communication. I also use this with the Bluetooth handle bar press to talk button. Another nice feature is you can turn the beep alerts off so when I’m hunting it’s silent. You will thank yourself once you use this radio.

  5. Greg

    Absolutely zero complaints! Radio easy to use, and works flawlessly. Great sound quality and volume!

  6. John (verified owner)

    I upgraded from the original Renegade, this radio’s battery is amazing! I have loved everything about it.

  7. Miles

    Battery life, radio range, and radio clarity is top notch. Have used multiple other brands from the industry and none compare to the Oxbow.

  8. Daniel (verified owner)

    The radios are a game changer. I absolutely detest when someone pulls up with a BCA…they’re a nightmare to reprogram and they hardly work. Further, the ability to lock is essential when in the backcountry. No risk of switching preset channels by accident or hitting trees etc. I wouldn’t trust my life or that of my friends with anything other than an oxbow radio.

  9. Alex (verified owner)

    These radios are hands down the best radios on the market! I have put them through a couple seasons of hard abuse and they are the most durable and most importantly reliable communication devices on the market!

  10. Nicole

    I’ve been using this radio for a few years and continue to do so because it’s reliable! When you need a radio, you need your radio to work and Oxbow will not let you down. Excellent battery life and durability against the harsh weather

  11. Kev

    Best radio on the market for the backcountry. I have charged my battery only two times the entire season. Crystal clear comunication without fail.

  12. Brent (verified owner)

    When i first used the radio i was skeptical due to the squelching issues with certain sleds. Once you guys helped sort that out, i cant say enough good stuff about this radio. Battery life is amazing, mic is loud and clear, easy to use and the range is great! This is a great product and i will stick by it!

  13. Kelsey (verified owner)

    This radio is loud and no cords! The loudness is great, especially when riding a snowmobile/snowbike. I love how there are no cords, and it’s super easy to take the radio on and off of a backpack!

  14. Jessica

    Loved the clarity and range on these radios. Used the 2.0 snowmobiling this winter and our friend was able to hear us at the hotel room while we were about 10 miles up into the backcountry playing!! Great products!

  15. Cody (verified owner)

    Best radio in the game!

  16. Rowdy

    Great company, great products, and even better customer service! We’ve used the Oxbow Gear radios for sometime now and are super happy with the radios. We also have Voyager Helmet Light and just playing with it at home…I might ger another to replace my spotlight!

  17. Chris

    Worked perfectly all season, I did not personlayy have any problems with the screws backing out but did see it on a friends radio.

  18. Cole

    Long range, longgg battery life, and reliable like no other!

    I purchased (two) Renegade 2.0 radios in February 2024 and tested them out on February 15th. The purpose of my purchase was for back country snowmobiling but so far this year the snow is scarce in the south eastern part of Quebec, Canada. I’m located near the state of Maine border crossing. I’m surrounded by mountains and live in a valley with plenty of hills which are heavily wooded with fir and maple trees.

    Test of February 15 th.
    My neighbour was stationed in the sugar shack and I drove away in my car with the windows closed along a logging road which had 4 switch backs and several hills for a total of 1.4 miles the reception was excellent but as I started to go down hill again the reception faded away putting an end to my test. For as the crow flies mileage it was 1.15 miles.

    I’m very pleased with the results because our boondocking distances are much closer than this test.

  22. James (verified owner)

    Only used it 1 time, but worked great.

  23. Robert B. (verified owner)

    Radio works very well and is easy to operate. I use the rivet bracket for my Avy pack and it was also easy to install and use.

  24. Paul Croft (verified owner)

    Better than my BCA but still not impressed, need dependable commutations. Probably no fault of Oxbow. ordered two more since the 1st got lost after one trip. again, not oxbows fault. clip on radio broke and did not have the tether attached

  25. Sarah V. (verified owner)

    Best radio on the market hands down, I won’t go in the backcountry without my Oxbow radio!

  26. Jack Peterson (verified owner)

  27. Andy (verified owner)

    I’ve had so many radios! These Renegades are by far superior to any I’ve used. I wanted radios with super clear communication, long distance range, and really long battery life. This one is it! I also love Extremely happy with them!

  28. Parker

    All around a great radio. It is easy to operate. It is compact. It has a long battery life in extremely cold environments. It is very loud!

  29. Tom (verified owner)

    Does what a radio is supposed to do, works in every condition. I’m the summer I run these when doing high alpine enduro in winter its all snowmobile and these never fail unlike some other radios I’ve used. Thanks Oxbow for keeping us safe out there, communication is key!

  30. Cody (verified owner)

    Extremely long battery life and super loud speakers, this is legit the best radio in the market hands down.

  31. Joel

    The battery life lasts several days, the range is better then any other radio I’ve used, and the radio is loud big too hear over the sled. It also connects to most other brand radios so you can communicate with everyone. The best radio I’ve ever used.

  32. Jesse (verified owner)

    Top notch backcountry radio, the battery lasts forever, its super simple to use, and very rugged. These radios will handle whatever abuse you throw at them.

  33. Hunter (verified owner)

    Love how compact the radio is and the fact that the battery life is unmatched to any other radio in existence. I am on day three probably hour 16 of riding and haven’t charged it yet and still have 2 out of three bars! Absolutely love my 2.0 and recommend it to any one in need of a radio for not only sledding or dirt bikes but hikers, hunters, and anyone doing any outdoor activities

  34. Brogan (verified owner)

    Best radio on the market. Great company that stands behind their products!

  35. Tristen

    Very versatile! Super clear and great volume levels. Even when ripping through the trees I can hear the crew come over them com clear as day.

  36. Alex

    I have ran a lot of different radios over the years and hands down oxbow definitely takes the cake. It is a huge vital key in safety in the backcountry whether that is just keeping tabs on your riding group or having to try and get ahold of other people on the mountain I know that no matter the situation that oxbow has me covered.

  37. Shelley

    Love how there is no cord to wire through my avy pack, super easy to use!

  38. Joanna

    I loved my 2.0 radio out in the backcountry last season for snowboarding & also out on the snowmobile. While others in our sled groups were having issues with other brand radios, mine held strong through the crazy snow storms we had in Tahoe. Easy to use & navigate the controls on the radio. A+ can’t wait to get back out this year w/my new 2.0

  39. Tanner Grover (verified owner)

    Best radios in the game. Perfect quality and sound even from 3 ravines over.

  40. Christopher Hill (verified owner)

    Love the small size and convenience

  41. Jacob Taylor (verified owner)

    Works great, great reception and easy to operate for first time radio user!

    Only downside is the clip on the back was snapped slightly on one side.

  42. Andy H. (verified owner)

    Amazing range and battery! Seriously the best radio I’ve ever used. It performs extremely well in cold temps and snow too! I’ve converted ALL of my buddies to these for snowbiking and dirt bikes and even use them while hunting and camping etc

  43. Benoit Simard (verified owner)

  44. Dylan S. (verified owner)

    Absolutely loving these radios! Fantastic battery life! Just went 4 full days of riding on one single charge and still had 2 bars left!

  45. Jake Niebur (verified owner)

    Works great! Even better service after the sale. I had an issue with the antenna and they immediately took care of it. Thank you!

  46. Randy R. (verified owner)

    Easy to use, durable and loud. Our group runs Motorola, BCA and the Oxbow. In my opinion, the Oxbow beats the others in so many categories, hands down. Anxious to get mine set up with the helmet speakers and remote mic switch!

  47. Jamey Parks (verified owner)

    This is my first time using the Oxbow Renegade 2.0 and I am very happy with it. I love the radio clip onto the backpack strap with no cords coming out the top. I was able to hear the radio while riding and it was easy for me to find the bottom to talk even with gloves on.

  48. Jason (verified owner)

    Wanted to say thank you so much for working with me

  49. Oliver (verified owner)

    I upgraded from a BCA radio and the reach is far superior. I really love the key lock. So far, a great experience with the radio.

    Super happy with the range and clarity. Great radio!

  52. Sawyer S. (verified owner)

  53. Kevin M. (verified owner)

    Really like the radio so far, easy to change channels/settings and you’re able to put it where you want it on your shoulder strap. 4 stars only because one time for some unknown reason it stopped working. We were using 3 different brands of radios, so we changed to an open channel with no “security”. At first it was working, but at a fuel stop I realized no one could hear me and I couldn’t hear them. I changed the channels back and forth and it started working again.

  54. Jessika Jenson (verified owner)

    This radio is incredible! It is so reliable in the backcountry! Highly recommend!

    Best radio on the market

  66. Trevor Spiars (verified owner)

    I started my 22/23 snowmobile season with the Renegade 2.0. It is very user friendly, I had all the options figured out in a few minutes. There’s no cord to deal with and it has a compact profile. The speaker is VERY loud and I could easily hear it over the sound of my motor. I highly recommend this radio!

  67. Robert Nellen (verified owner)

    Much more user friendly than your typical radios.

  68. Nicholas B. (verified owner)

    Excellent product that is very simple to use👍

  69. Jesse Lemay (verified owner)

    Very durable, long battery life, and easy to use. Also communicates with other radios, so no worries if your buddy has a bca.

  70. Ryan S. (verified owner)

    Very convenient to have it all at your finger tips easy to access. As long as it holds up to the elements I will be happy.
