Ortovox Free Rider 22 Avabag Kit
The Ortovox FREE RIDER 22 AVABAG is a freeride backpack that provides the highest level of protection combined with an extremely lightweight airbag system. The redevelopment 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. Ortovox has 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 Ortovox has significantly optimized the helmet and snowboard holders.
The bottom line – if you’re an aggressive skier or snowboarder who demands a performance-based avalanche airbag that fits perfectly and stays in place, you can do no better than the Ortovox Free Rider.
