ABS Airbags


In the 1970s a Bavarian farmer was caught in an avalanche whilst carrying game back to his farm. He survived by staying above the avalanche, something which was attributed the game he was carrying on his shoulders. This started a series of tests on the effects of canisters and voluminous bags in avalanches and in 1980 ABS was founded. By 1985 the first fully functional airbag system was premiered and ABS have been at the forefront of airbag technology ever since.
