Ortovox  developed the FREE RIDER 20S AVABAG as a freeride backpack that provides the highest level of protection combined with an extremely lightweight airbag system. The integral back protector, low volume and close fit make this a perfect pack for lift-served off-piste or for slopes that need only a short hike or skin.

The redevelopment of the SPS FLEX back protector is a 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. In parallel, the broad hip belt and the avalanche backpack’s body-integrating silhouette ensure a snug and secure fit on the back.

Ortovox have completely redesigned the Freeride backpack’s inner layout to aid packing. They 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, with significantly optimized the helmet and snowboard holders.

The advantages of the AVABAG system at a glance:

  • extremely light and  compact airbag system, with the AVABAG system weighing approximately 690g*
  • activation training without cartridge
  • handle design optimized for activation: the handle can be gripped with any type of glove, and is suitable for both left and right-handed users
  • removable and compatible with all ORTOVOX AVABAG backpacks
  • no electronics, so no worries about battery or software failure

The Free Rider 20S AVABAG Backpack kit includes operating instructions and the AVABAG unit. The AVABAG UNIT includes: - activation unit - airbag - activation handle - pre-tension tool.  Gas canister supplied separately.

Sizing: This is a short sized pack, scroll down for sizing measurement and sizing details.  The equivalent backpack for customers with shorter backs is the Ortovox Freerider 22 Avabag Backpack.

*Weight fluctuations of +/- 4% may arise during manufacturing.
