KTI Safety Alert Personal Locator Beacon
Looking for something for Dad that he'll love more than socks? A KTI Personal Locator Beacon might be just the thing.
Picture this: you're out alone on a mountain road, enjoying the freedom of two wheels and the wilderness, suddenly an animal hops out in front of you. You swerve to miss it, and manage to lay the bike down (or lose it over the edge) and now you can't ride.
Stuck, all alone, with no-one for miles, hit the button and be rescued with this incredible device.
KTI 406 MHz Safety Alert SA2G (catchy title) is compact, fast and reliable. It provides peace of mind for anyone who is off the beaten track, off piste or off grid. Using the highly accurate 406MHz COSPAS-SARSAT satellite frequency to deliver pinpoint detection accuracy and faster rescue response times this small device could make finding the needle (you) in the haystack much easier.
Ideal for motorcyclists, bushwalkers, four wheel drivers, cross country skiers, small watercraft users and small aircraft pilots, the KTI Safety Alert PLB (personal locator beacon) is the ultimate global rescue tool for people who want peace of mind in the outdoors.
With 10 year battery life this PLB exceeds 24 hours continuous transmission at -20°C (that's quite chilly). GPS equipped with a location accuracy of down to 3.0 metres, coupled with a chip style antenna which provides high sensitivity together with superior resistance against detuning by nearby objects.
No subscription necessary for this little life saver.
One of the best personal locator beacons on the market, we trust this little piece of technology every time we ride.
This pocket sized lifesaver may be the most important piece of equipment you ever own.
