Introducing the all new Ortovox Cross Rider 18 AVABAG as well as the AVABAG Cartridge Aluminum NA, the all new Cross Rider 18 AVABAG has been designed for all powder fans who don’t mind climbing a few extra meters to get the best descents.Thanks to its AVABAG airbag system, the CROSS RIDER 18 AVABAG is a lightweight, descent-oriented avalanche airbag that still has all of the important functions for days spent riding powder. Its close fit and foamed back mean it will sit perfectly on the body and ensure maximum freedom of movement – no matter how long the descent. The main compartment provides quick access to your emergency equipment. Other small items can easily be stowed away in the hip pocket. The aluminum locking clasp and safety leg strap guarantee that the backpack sits securely – on any descent. Our CROSS RIDER 18 AVABAG is also well equipped for when you have to carry your skis: They can be attached securely and diagonally to the avalanche backpack using the D-skifix. Of course, there is also an ice axe and hiking pole fastening and a removable helmet net.
This light airbag system weighs just 690 grams* and is therefore sensationally compact. Another special feature of the AVABAG system is the activation training: You can practice activating it again and again without the cartridge attached, so that you can be well prepared for an emergency situation.
