With the Airbag System 3.0, we have succeeded in developing a reliable, small, ultra-lightweight avalanche airbag. As the airbag balloon needs to be extremely robust, we have revised it completely using production technologies from the automotive industry.
A detailed tour plan including studying avalanche reports, weather forecasts and maps, selecting the route and a situative assessment on site are essential for any freerider. A full set of avalanche safety equipment is another basic requirement, as is the ability to use it correctly through training and regular practice.
The Protection Airbag System can also protect you from mechanical injuries. It protects the head, neck and chest area in emergencies and provides the best possible protection from burial and life-threatening trauma injuries.
