Race weight and ready for reconnaissance! The BD Recon LT beacon is the ticket for light and fast alpine missions and skimo races. Ostensibly replacing the Pieps Micro, this adorable beacon features Bluetooth connectivity so you can stay on top of staying on top. A 50-meter range isn't for guides but suffices for lots of touring, missioning, and certainly racing. One battery keeps things light while three antennae help you circle the drain with accuracy. For convenience and ease of use, BD has included a harness for us old-schoolers that prefer to keep our pants pockets free of lint and rectangles. Simple search slider and marking button keeps the confusion down when anxiety is up. The Black Diamond Recon LT is a compelling beacon to make your companion.

  • 3-antennae beacon is fully featured, but not-so-full weight.
  • Settings and updates are controlled via a Bluetooth connection.
  • Marking function flags a burial so you can be a multi-hero.
  • Compatible with Pieps IProbe for some precision poking.
  • Includes harness-style pouch for your ponch, for an extra 58g.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Ben
Does this beacon beep louder than the notoriously quiet Pieps Micro? How does it compare overall to the Arva Evo5, the other nerd-weight beacon on the market?
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi Ben, unfortunately we don't have a Pieps Micro around to compare to, but I grabbed the Recon LT and Arva Evo5 and compared them.

When in search mode, they both have similar initial volumes, which I would describe as highly noticeable. Neither strikes me as quiet. They sound similar in volume to my BCA Tracker 3. When you are moving towards a target, the Recon LT cues you auditorily by increasing the frequency of the beeps. The Arva Evo5 does this by increasing the pitch and volume of the beeps, so it gets louder the closer you get to a target.

They are very similarly spec'd, so it might just come down to preference. The Recon LT includes a harness pouch, whereas the Evo5 simply includes a belt and elastic strap, if you have a preferred carrying method.
