Ortovox Freerider 22 Avabag (Avabag Not Included)
For the lightest airbag system in the world Ortovox have developed the FREE RIDER 22 AVABAG – a freerider backpack that provides the highest level of protection.
Ortovox have redeveloped their SPS Flex back protector to incorporate both the back system and the protector in a flexible unit. The unobtrusive, TUV-certified protector is built from eight flexible pads which adapt to the shape of the body for maximum comfort. In the event of a sudden impact, the pads immediately harden to absord the force of the impact and protect the wearer. The protector integrates into the silhouette of the avalanche backpack, and the broad hip belt ensures a secure but comfortable fit around the waist and on the back.
Ortovox have also completely redesigned the Freeride backpack’s inner and airbag to aid packing. Around the AVABAG, which now weighs only 690g, there is 22 Liters of fully-utilizable packing space, room for all the tools and kit you need.
Outside, the tried and tested freeride features ensure that this pack is completely suited to off-piste action. The snug, streamlined design allows full body movement, and optimized helmet and snowboard holders make this a practical as well as comfortable pack.
This product can be combined with the Ortovox Avabag Unit, a simple, compact and easy to use Avabag system, to ensure maximum safety whilst skiing
