Thanks to the innovative processing system which requires no sewing or additional sealing, and a drastically reduced venturi unit, the Ortovox Avabag is one of the lightest airbag systems in the world. Weighing only 690g, the system combines an incredible lightweight stripped-down design with the highest levels of reliability.
At just 1.8 Liters, and weighing only 690g, the AVABAG is the smallest airbag system worldwide.
The unit's small size means it takes up the minimum amount of space in any of the ORTOVOX backpacks, leaving as much room as possible for tools and kit.
The activation unit sits inside the venturi, creating a completely closed, robust system that functions without electricity. As such it is protected from dirt, ice, and all forms of corrosion, regardless of its environment.
The welding techniques used in the production of this unit have the dual function of keeping the size as small as possible at the same time as protecting the unit from any tears or leaks.
The AVABAG unit can be simply and quickly replaced or upgraded and is compatible with all ORTOVOX AVABAG backpacks.
Releases can be practised as often as required without an installed cartridge to ensure that the wearer is able to react appropriately in a real situation. The AVABAG system can then be re-activated by using the Ortovox Rearming Tool.
Ortovox AVABAG Carbon Cartridge
Weighing just 310 grams, the Ortovox Avabag Carbon Cartridge is lightweight, compact and easily stowed due to its small size. The Canister can be quickly and simply installed and removed for ease of use and efficiency.
The canister is capable of inflating the 150-litre volume Avabag in under 3 seconds and is an integral component of a system designed to keep the skier from being completely submerged in the event of an avalanche.
Carbon is the 15th most abundant element found in the earth's crust and is used on the surface of modern racing skis and as a hybrid element in ski waxes supporting the world cup and elite North American racing scenes.
Electro-thermal purification technology is applied to carbon materials at 3,000C creating a crystalline structure with exceptional purity. In effect, it is stronger, lighter, more durable, efficient and resilient.
Attaching the Avabag Carbon Cartridge:
Screw the AVABAG cartridge into the cartridge bushing right up to the stop so that the sealing ring can no longer be seen on the AVABAG cartridge.
Fasten the backpack orange cartridge clip to keep in place.
