ABS - The avalanche airbag
The ABS avalanche airbag is an intelligent emergency system that can help prevent the wearer from being buried completely in an avalanche and to reduce injury. The system works as follows: By pulling on the activation handle on the pack, two airbags with a combined volume of 170 l automatically inflate within seconds. The additional volume created can prevent the wearer from being buried by the avalanche.
ABS is the most widely used avalanche airbag system and with 25 years of experience has also been in the market the longest. The ABS Vario Base Units holds the safety relevant components of the ABS avalanche airbag. This includes the TwinBags, the activation handle and the gas propellant cartridge that is available in a steel or much lighter carbon version.
