Introducing Our Backcountry Radios: Unmatched Performance Meets Unbeatable Design

Communication is essential when you’re out there tackling the elements. Whether you’re carving up the slopes, shredding dirt bike trails, conquering mountain peaks, or exploring the wilderness, our backcountry radios are the perfect companion to keep you connected. Designed with you in mind, these radios bring you reliability, durability, and performance in a sleek and user-friendly package.

Patented Mounting System: Adventure-Ready, Always Secure

We’ve developed a patented mounting system, fully compatible with GoPro mounts, that allows you to securely attach our radios to the shoulder strap of any backpack or avalanche vest. Say goodbye to fumbling around with cables and loose equipment – our design ensures your radio stays put, even during the most extreme sports and movements. The secure attachment prevents your radio from flopping around or getting in your way, giving you the confidence to focus on your adventure.

For winter sports, our GoPro-compatible mounting system keeps your radio front and center, making it accessible and cable-free. No more struggling with cables running through an avalanche bag, which can make it difficult to change channels, charge batteries, and access other features. With our innovative design, you’ll have the whole radio right where you need it.

Tough and Reliable: Built to Brave the Elements

Our radios are engineered to withstand the harshest conditions. From snowmobiling and skiing to dirt biking and hiking, we’ve got you covered. All of our radios feature water and moisture-sealed buttons, as well as an internal waterproof membrane lining the mic and speaker. This ensures that your radio stays protected, even in the wettest and coldest conditions.

Plus, our radios are designed to endure freezing temperatures, ensuring the battery, mic, and speaker remain unaffected. The rugged construction and premium materials guarantee that your radio will perform, no matter what conditions you’re in.

Powerful Performance: Unrivaled Range

Operating on FRS/GMRS frequencies, our radios transmit at 2 watts, in compliance with the FCC’s legal license-free limit. This means you’ll enjoy strong, clear communication without worrying about licensing fees or restrictions. With a real-world backcountry range of 1-5 miles and line-of-sight range of 25 miles, our radios are perfect for staying in touch with your group when you’re out exploring the wilderness.

Extended battery life: Explore for Days

Battery life is another important consideration when it comes to choosing a handheld two-way radio. That’s why we’re proud to offer radios with a battery life of 36 hours, one of the highest numbers on the market. You can explore the wilderness for days without worrying about running out of power, so you can focus on having fun and enjoying your outdoor adventures.

User-Friendly Interface: Easy to Operate, Even on the Go

We understand that when you’re out in the backcountry, simplicity is key. That’s why we’ve designed our radios with an intuitive interface that’s easy to use, even when you’re on the move. The well-placed buttons and straightforward menu system make it a breeze to navigate through channels, adjust settings, and access other features.

Pair them with your favorite headphones, wireless headset, Bluetooth earpiece, speaker, microphone, or helmet intercom system for a true wireless communication experience.
