MADE FOR POWDER LINES: THE FREE RIDER 22 AVABAG
FREE RIDER 22 AVABAG, we have developed an extremely light freerider backpack that provides the highest level of protection and functionality. 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 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 and airbag to aid packing. We have 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 we have significantly optimized the helmet and snowboard holders.
In addition, an AVABAG UNIT can be easily and quickly installed into our FREERIDER 20 S AVABAG. The system weighs only 690 grams*. With the AVABAG avalanche airbag system, activation can be practiced again and again without a cartridge attached. After all, in the case of an emergency, every move has to be just right!
The advantages of the AVABAG system at a glance:
- extremely light and sensationally compact airbag system
- activation training without cartridge
- handle design optimized for activation: the handle can be gripped with any type of glove, and is suitable for both left and right-handed users
- removable and compatible with all ORTOVOX AVABAG backpacks
- no electronics

Ortovox came to life with the invention of the first double frequency transceiver to aid in avalanche victim searches. With their passion for keeping skiers and snowboarders safe, Ortovox has grown into one of the biggest producers of avalanche safety gear on the market. In 1995 they added merino underwear to their selection, and we have been hooked ever since!
