ABS Ortovox Avalanche Backpacks - Free Rider 26

Regular price $319.00 Save $-319.00


Ortovox places trust in its system partner's 28 years of ABS expertise and its tried and tested twinbag technology. The versatility of the system is both innovative and unique. Just a few motions and only three minutes is all it takes to install the M.A.S.S. unit into any of the five backpack models. If conditions allow, installing the airbag system can be entirely avoided. In such cases the backpacks are up to 1880 grams lighter and gain several liters in additional volume - making them suitable for a broader spectrum of uses. What's more, the adjustment options prove just as versatile as the system itself. The release grip can be in-stalled for either right or left-handed users and ist height and angle can be freely adjusted. A stowable aluminum bracket on the ABS avalanche backpack protects the grip from unintended release.

Together they have developed three different models especially for free riders. In addition to the Ortovox Freerider 26's unmistakable silhouette, the highlight here is the new removable SPS PRO back protector. It provides TÜV-certified safety and can also be used separately with the included attachment straps. This ABS avalanche backpack is available in three sizes and weighing in at only 300 GRAMS it affords optimal ventilation courtesy of its ventilation holes. The ergonomically designed straps and the wide elastic hip belt with its innovative aluminum locking clasp of the Ortovox Freerider 26 ensure the protector fits perfectly and thus provides optimum protection. The ABS avalanche backpack provides additional safety and ease of use even when wearing thick gloves. What's more, we rely upon robust aluminum and abrasion-resistant hypalon for its new multi-functional X-SKIFIX ski fastening system. Secured by locking aluminum clasps, the skis can be attached either diagonally or crossed, as can snowboards or snowshoes.
