Ortovox has developed the Free Rider 22 Avabag – a freeride backpack that provides the highest level of protection combined with an extremely lightweight airbag system. The redevelopment of the SPS FLEX back protector is the main focus, which combines the back system and protector into a flexible unit. Built from eight pads that remain comfortably flexible even in the cold, the protector adapts to the body and absorbs impact through the immediate hardening of the foam. Meanwhile, the broad hip belt and the avalanche backpack’s body-integrating silhouette ensure a secure fit on the back. Ortovox has completely redesigned the Freeride backpack’s inner layout to aid packing. They have been able to produce 22 liters of fully-utilizable volume around the Avabag unit. Outside, the tried and tested freeride features come into action, including significantly optimized helmet and snowboard holders.
The advantages of the Avabag system at a glance:
- extremely light and sensationally compact airbag system
- activation training without cartridge
- handle design optimized for activation: the handle can be gripped with any type of glove, and is suitable for both left and right-handed users
- removable and compatible with all Ortovox Avabag backpacks
- no electronics
