Spectacular slopes and breathtaking lines are guaranteed on the Swatch Freeride World Tour. This is where the world's best freeride skiers and snowboarders compete. ABS sponsors the series as official supplier and airbag partner, and equips the tour team with ABS TwinBags.


ABS®-rider und FWT-participant Eva Walkner:

„As professional riders, we are role models for young freeriders and we can make a significant contribution to sensitizing them to the dangers in the backcountry. The ABS® TwinBag has been my faithful companion for a long time. That’s why I’m particularly pleased that ABS® is now involved as the partner of the Freeride World Tour."

ABS® will equip the team of the tour with the so-called Base Units, the heart of the avalanche airbags – the zip-ons come from the renowned backpack producer Dakine. In addition to equipping the team and the riders, ABS® also provides the public with information and workshops on avalanche safety during the tour stops.

„Security is key for FWT so it’s essential to partner with the leading manufacturer in that field“, says  Nicolas Hale-Woods, Freeride World Tour General Manager Europe.
