ABS: Safe products for more safety on the mountain

In an emergency, the avalanche backpack can make the difference between life and death. That's why ABS does everything it can to develop safe products according to the best technical requirements - and also has them certified by TÜV Süd. In 2021, the company is setting itself new goals to make products and processes functional and sustainable. The topics of durability and reparability in particular have a significant influence on the sustainability balances of the bags and accessories. Incidentally, all products have a two-year warranty from the time of purchase, which can be extended to four years. ABS also offers repairs, system checks, cartridge changes and other services. Through holistic safety, ABS wants to enable every mountain sports enthusiast to enjoy inspiring moments in the powder - in keeping with the claim "Enjoy your wild".


Keyword A.CROSS: The award-winning backpack was developed especially for piste and evening ski tourers who want to be safe and travel in style. Avalanche airbags are deliberately avoided - but not solutions for cleverly integrated safety equipment. Its big brother, the A.LIGHT, is the variable avalanche backpack with an airbag system that has been proven a thousand times over innovative safety features - also in a reduced-style design. The safety set called A.SSURE consists of an aluminum shovel and probe.

The highlight: When folded, the probe (and the matching first-aid kit) is pushed into the shovel. Smaller, lighter and faster to reach, there's no way! CEO Dr. Stefan Mohr: "All our products always offer clear added value: The difference is made by well thought-out little things like the red emergency strap on our new backpacks. An extremely practical DeepL access to safety equipment".


ABS is entering the field of digitization for the first time. But with a big hit: The smartphone app A.WAY, developed from scratch, is the communication and information tool for active winter sports enthusiasts with tour planner, avalanche know-how, weather and snow reports, tutorial videos and much more. The app collects a lot of safety and planning information from respected providers and experts under the ABS umbrella.

This makes the pioneer in active avalanche safety a reliable digital partner. "The support and safety of winter sports enthusiasts in their passion for the mountains is close to our hearts. That's why our app will be available to everyone free of charge since October 2020". And with the available ABS beacons, small Bluetooth transmitters that are attached to the equipment, the app checks via Bluetooth whether everything is on board for the ski tour - or locates skis lost in deep snow. Connectivity on ski tours - for even more fun offside. With security.
