Statement from the jury: Recco is famous all over the globe for a very small device that has made a huge difference to unlucky outdoor people and their families. Now they made this already small device even tinier and ultra flexible. The developers managed to reduce its material use by 50% saving also on the copper that is inside. The result is a device that - after two years of R&D and testing - is so small and flexible, that it can be incorporated in high-pulse or warm weather garments made from the lightest and thinnest fabrics; you will not notice that it is there. The jury rewards this big leap that is made with this device that on top of this, outperforms its ‘bigger’ brother in search performance.
It's the slimmest and therefore most flexible RECCO reflector yet, still it is super durable. It's very light at only 1 g and 2,5mm thick. It makes you searchable to rescue professionals, for the lifetime of your garment.
PRIMARY INNOVATION FEATURES
The most flexible and durable RECCO Rescue Reflector yet (only 2,5mm thick), made for packable clothing such as puffer jackets or very thin hiking pants. This opens a completely new product segment for potential RECCO brand partners. With its extremely flexible design it can be hidden into garments without effecting the design of the garment, making it attractive to brands with clean design. The high-quality silicone material makes it flexible, yet very temperature and abrasion resistant.
