    These work awesome we ride single track in the mountains and range seems to be at least two miles that we have tested. Comes in loud enough to hear over our headphones for music and is clear. Channel lock is nice… first time out we had both bumped to different channels. Super simple to use as well and batteries have lasted for days of riding.

    So far they seem to be working good, unfortunately they do not work vehicle to vehicle on the roadway, but the real teat will be in Colorado at the end of July, then I will have a full review.

    Have only used sledding 3 times so far… but the Renegade seems to be more practical than the BCA’s for me. Range seems about similar (maybe slightly less), but the price is significantly cheaper and the usability is much more efficient against the elements.

  5. Kevin Young (verified owner)

    These are great radios. The reception is very clear, and easy to use.

  6. Noah (verified owner)

    Still waiting to receive it

  8. MIchael King (verified owner)

    Very good reception at longer distances. Loud and clear.

  9. Keith (verified owner)

    Not much bigger than the BCA hand microphone. Everything in one very secure unit. Seems to have at least equal range as other 2 watt units.

    I’ve had these for over a month and would highly recommend them to anyone. I’ve used the bca link for years and for me this works far better. So far I’ve used it for backcountry skiing and snowbiking. Design is simple I turn it on lock the function and go all day without ever accidentally switching channels. Range is great. Battery life is good I get 2-3 days of riding without charging if needed. Great company if your waiting for yours due to growing pains it’s because their product is worth it!

    Radio itself is nice but battery fully charged at 9 am didn’t last till 2 pm very minimal use in between. It was cold but my old bca radio I had in my pack as a backup lasted the day.

    Bout this radio for out west riding snowmobile. Performed very well in the woods and backcountry. 2 other guys I was with had BCA radios an talked to them just fine with good range. Very nice radio!

  14. Scott Fink (verified owner)

    So far, so good. Only been out a couple times with them, but they are performing flawlessly.

  15. COLBY T. (verified owner)

    It is a decent unit lightweight and pretty easy to use. The clip is strong and secure but it does make the radio stick out a way from the strap it gets in the way when i have to cross my arm, but it is very stout. placement is important if mounted to high on your shoulder strap the antenna is in the path of your helmet while turning your head. other than those minor issues i am happy with this radio. i would reccomend it to others not wanting to spend a fortune on a pack radio.

    I still have not recieved it. Tracking tells me nothing but ” It will be late”

      Hey Brad,

      Sorry you haven’t received it yet. We did ship it right away, but the postal services do get a little backed up this time of year. Thanks for your business and support!

  18. Aubrey DuMont (verified owner)

    pretty darn cool, I think my dad will love these.

  19. Caleb (verified owner)

    After some more testing, these these performed great! Excited to try these out on the trail!

  20. Craig C. (verified owner)

    I like the radio overall, wish the PTT button was a bit bigger and the two buttons underneath were in a different locations, I tend to hit those buttons with gloves etc. The clip does not fit on BCA vests, but that is expected and fits normal backpacks just fine.

    • Oxbow Gear (store manager)

      Hey Craig,

      Thanks for the feedback. We’ll definitely take your recommendations into consideration.
