ABS Backpack The Avalanche Airbag
The ABS® Vario line is the patented best-practice solution for the individual demands of freeriders, ski tourers and mountain guides. The twin system consists of a Vario Base Unit and the Vario Zip-ons with packed volumes between 8 and 55 liters. The Base Units are equipped with the proven ABS® TwinBag System. Whatever your plans are - whether short, single- or multi-day tours, you are always reliably equipped with the right backpack system.
Zip-ons specially designed to meet the needs of snowmobile riders, allowing quick access to the shovel. The SB Zip-ons with 5 liters and 15 liters can easily be attached by means of a zip.
The new Silver Edition combines the advantages of the ABS® lines: It is particularly narrow and fits to the body perfectly thanks to the neoprene hip strap. It can be combined with all Vario and Ultralight Zip-ons. Since the neoprene hip strap takes less load than the normal padded waist belt of the normal Vario Base Unit the attached Zip-ons should not be too heavily loaded for optimum fit and comfort. The thoroughly tested ABS TwinBag System is integrated into the Base Unit. When you pull the activation handle, two airbags with a total volume of 170 liters inflate which will most likely prevent the wearer from being buried.
Flexibility for freeriders. Base unit specifically designed to meet the needs of freeriders with proven ABS TwinBag system: compact, narrow, light. The Powder Zip-Ons with 5 or 15 l can easily be attached by means of a zip.
The ABS® activation unit (cartridge and handle) is required for the activation of the ABS® TwinBag. Refilling the cartridge is cheap and the activation handle can easily be replaced in retail shops. ABS® will do the actual refilling and renew the warranty.
