RECCO reflector adds extra safety to Xavier’s Resero Whistle
The Resero Whistle is an instant, hands-free emergency system for outdoor activists, launched at ISPO last year. To further increase the safety function it will now also have a RECCO reflector integrated in the unit.

The RECCO reflector works as a safety back up system and also facilitate an exact pin pionting in the final search stage.
RECCO® advanced rescue technology makes outdoor enthusiasts searchable to rescuers in case of an avalanche accident or when lost in the outdoors. The technology builds on a two-part radar system. Rescuers carry RECCO® detectors that send out search signals which are echoed by RECCO® reflectors, carried by the user. RECCO® detectors are used worldwide at more than 900 ski resorts and mountain rescue organizations in 28 countries. RECCO® reflectors are integrated into select apparel, helmets, protection gear and boots manufactured by more than 150 leading outdoor brands.
