Product description
The MOST VERSATILE AVALANCHE BACKPACK helps you prepare for any situation!
Ortovox places trust in the system partner's 28 years of ABS expertise and ist tried and tested twinbag technology. The versatility of the system is both innovative and unique. Just a few motions and only three minutes is all it takes to install the M.A.S.S. unit into any of the five backpack models. If conditions allow, installing the airbag system can be entirely avoided. In such cases the backpacks are up to 1880 grams lighter and gain several liters in additional volume - making them suitable for a broader spectrum of uses. What's more, the adjustment options prove just as versatile as the system itself. The release grip can be in-stalled for either right or left-handed users and ist height and angle can be freely adjusted. A stowable aluminum bracket protects the grip from unintended release.
Together we have developed three different models especially for free riders. In addition to its unmistakable silhouette, the highlight here is the new removable SPS PRO² back protector. It provides TÜV-certified safety and can also be used separately with the includ-ed attachment straps. Available in three sizes and weighing in at only 300 GRAMS it affords optimal ventilation courtesy of ist ventilation holes. The ergonomically designed straps and the wide elastic hip belt with ist innovative aluminum locking clasp ensure the protector fits per-fectly and thus provides optimum protection. It provides additional safety and ease of use even when wearing thick gloves. What's more, we rely upon robust aluminum and abrasion-resistant hypalon for its new multi-functional X-SKIFIX ski fastening system. Secured by locking aluminum clasps, the skis can be attached either diagonally or crossed, as can snowboards or snowshoes.
