We know that its costly for a company to have a massive recall on a product,
but obviously Pieps knows that the cost is much higher if this beacon fails.
Effectively immediately, PIEPS is recalling all PIEPS VECTOR avalanche transceivers due to functional issues that may not be readily apparent to the user. This RECALL affects all PIEPS VECTOR transceivers.
PIEPS has discovered that the functionality of the VECTOR does not conform to our quality standards and strict requirements for “Premium Alpine Performance”. Safety and reliability have top priority! In order to prevent any risks to users, PIEPS has decided to implement this recall. Please stop using the PIEPS VECTOR immediately.
This recall applies to the PIEPS VECTOR only. All other PIEPS transceivers are not affected by this recall.
