Ortovox has developed the FREE RIDER 22 AVABAG – a freeride backpack that provides the highest level of protection combined with an extremely lightweight airbag system . The re-development of the SPS FLEX back protector is the main focus, which combines the back system and protector into a flexible unit. Built from eight pads that remain comfortably flexible even in the cold, the TÜV-certified 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. We have completely redesigned the Freeride backpack’s inner layout to aid packing. We have been able to produce 22 liters of fully-utilizable volume around the AVABAG unit. Outside, the tried and tested freeride features come into action, whereby we have significantly optimized the helmet and snowboard holders.
