The E1 system is the lightest electrical system on the market. The entire E1 system weighs just 1,280 g, barely 150 g heavier than the 2.0 airbag system, making it without a doubt the lightest electrical airbag available on the market.
Supercapacitors are capable of storing electrical energy without any chemical reaction (unlike lithium-ion or lithium-poly batteries) and are thus not sensitive to lower temperatures, meaning you get the same performance from -30°C to +40°C. Supercapacitors are also lighter than "traditional" batteries.

How do you power up the Alpride Airbag system?
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.).
Radio Compressor Design
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.
Auto Test & LED Indicators
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.
The LEDs visible from the outside of the bag indicate the status and charge level of the E1 system: The utmost safety guaranteed.
How much does Alpride Unit Weigh?
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.
How do test activations work?
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.
Is the Alpride System Removable?
Yes simply remove the Alpride unit from one bag and easily add to another size without any extras.
The supercapacitors are passive electronic elements and are not subject to any restrictions for transport, shipment or storage. Finally, Alpride airbags are the solution for hassle-free flying.
Where are the Alpride engineered?
The airbag systems are fully designed and engineered in Switzerland. The electronic circuit is manufactured and tested in Switzerland as well. We guarantee impeccable quality, for a safe product.
