The Ortovox Free Rider 22 Avabag is a mid size pack for days in the backcountry with a focus on providing the wearer additional protection. Along with Ortovox's Avabag the Free Rider 22 includes the redeveloped SPS Flex back protector. Made from Visco elastic foam it will remain flexible for all day comfort but hardens when impacted providing excellent protection in the event of a crash. The rest of the pack has the expected safety pocket, ski and snowboard carry axe and pole loops and helmet net. The outer fabric is PU coated, making it water resistant and the silhouette of the pack integrates with the body giving a secure fit which is backup by the wide hip belt which will evenly distribute the weight of the pack.
Ortovox's Avabag system is a new addition to the airbag market for 2016. It's a compressed gas powered system and Ortovox have succeeded in making it extremely small and light. The airbag and inflation system takes up just 1.8 litres and weighs a paltry 640g, this leaves plenty of space in your pack for your kit. A further advantage of the Ortovox system is the training feature on the Avabag. The Avabag allows you to set off the airbag without a cartridge installed, obviously it won't inflate, but the system does let you know if the inflation would have been successful had the cartridge been attached. It can then be easily reset by the user for another test or use.
The Avabag is removable and can be fitted to any Ortovox Avabag pack. It's worth noting that the stated Ortovox pack sizes take into account the space the airbag takes up, though not the cartridge.
Buying an airbag is a massive purchase so if you would like to talk to us about it and need any information not provided here then please give us a call to discuss. Contact details at the bottom of the page.
