Product details: Ortovox Free Rider 22 Avabag Avalanche Backpack (without Cartridge) Black / Anthracite

With the Free Rider 22 Avabag Avalanche Backpack Ortovox developed a freeride backpack that provides the highest level of protection combined with an extremely lightweight airbag system. The main focus is on the SPS FLEX back protector, which combines the back system and protector into a flexible unit.

Built from eight pads that remain comfortably flexible even in the cold, the protector adapts to the body and absorbs impact through the immediate hardening of the foam. Meanwhile, the broad hip belt and the avalanche backpack's body-integrating silhouette ensure a secure fit on the back.

The Avabag system is an extremely light and sensationally compact airbag system. Without cartridge you can do unlimited activation training. The handle can be gripped with any type of glove, and is suitable for both left and right-handed users. The Avabag works without electronics, is removable and compatible with all Ortovox Avabag backpacks.

On the inside, Ortovox produced 22 litres of fully-utilizable volume around the Avabag unit. Outside, the tried and tested freeride features come into action, whereby Ortovox has significantly optimised the helmet and snowboard holders.
