BCA Float 22 Throttle Avalanche Airbag
Preventing or minimizing burial depth is the key to reducing avalanche fatalities. That's because the majority of time in an avalanche rescue is spent on excavating the victim. An airbag is designed to keep you at or near the surface, minimizing excavation time.
The Float 22 Throttle avalanche airbag is designed specifically for snowmobilers. Creating boyancy and helping you float to the surface, the 150-liter airbag not only decreases your burial depth but also protects your head and neck from trauma in an avalanche. The trigger, located on the right shoulder strap, allows you to deploy the airbag without taking your hand off the throttle.
With its thin profile and lightweight structure, the Float Throttle will easily carry your winter rescue tools, lunch, water, and extra layer for a full day in the backcountry. BCA's 190+ certified refill locations around the world make it the easiest refillable airbag system on the market. The Float airbag system does not guarantee survival in an avalanche incident. Educate yourself, make good decisions, and know before you go. Cylinder must be purchased separately.
Designed specifically for snowmobilers.
