The brand new Alpride E1 is a fully electronic avalanche airbag, its supercapacitor technology replaces the traditional Li-ion battery and results in the lightest electronical device on the market.
Alpride has collaborated with major brands such as Scott Sports and Black Diamond to create some of the best electric airbags to date.
Supercapacitors store electrical energy without any chemical reaction (unlike lithium-ion or lithium-poly batteries)
The Alpride supercapacitor airbag system is a chargeable unit, The E1 unit can be recharged with two AA batteries in just 40 minutes, the easiest solution in the mountains, far away from electrical outlets and civilisation.
The E1 can also be recharged using a micro-USB port in 20 minutes (with a standard charger or any USB-compatible energy source: powerbank, solar, etc.).
The E1 compressor design is the same as what’s in the latest generation car turbochargers. This radial compressor technology provides high-pressure, fast inflation.
Two AA batteries provide the airbag with 3 months of autonomy. Your E1 airbag is ready for use all winter long, without you having to worry about recharging it. It’s always ready to hit the slopes.
Each time the E1 system is switched on, the electronics perform a self-diagnostic to check the function of more than 15 parameters and components of the E1.
We all know some airbag units can be super heavy and unfunctional, Alpride stepped in here to create the lightest electronic airbag on the market. The entire E1 system weighs just 1,280 g.
The great thing about the Alpride airbag unit is you can run cost-free test activations due to the USB charging point, you can run multiple deployments on a single charge. If there is a Green LED light on the airbag system you will be able to pull the trigger as many times as you wish in order to test your airbag is working correctly.
We recommend testing regularly.
