Ortovox Cross Rider 18L Avabag Kit Backpack - Hit the powder!

A new addition to the AVABAG family: The new Ortovox Cross Rider 18L Avabag Kit Backpack has been designed for all powder fans who don’t mind climbing a few extra meters to get the best descents. Thanks to its AVABAG airbag system, the CROSS RIDER 18 AVABAG is a lightweight, descent-oriented avalanche airbag that still has all of the essential functions for days spent riding powder. Its close fit and foamed back mean it will sit correctly on the body and ensure maximum freedom of movement – no matter how long the descent. 

The main compartment provides quick access to your emergency equipment. Other small items can easily be stowed away in the hip pocket. The aluminum locking clasp and safety leg strap guarantee that the backpack sits securely – on any descent. Our CROSS RIDER 18 AVABAG is also well equipped for when you have to carry your skis: They can be attached securely and diagonally to the avalanche backpack using the D-ski fix. Of course, there is also an ice ax and hiking pole fastening and a removable helmet net.

With its lightweight and intelligent features, the CROSS RIDER 18 AVABAG is ready for the most epic spray turns!

This light airbag system weighs just 690 grams* and is therefore sensationally compact. Another unique feature of the AVABAG system is the activation training: You can practice activating it again and again without the cartridge attached so that you can be well prepared for an emergency situation.
The advantages of the AVABAG system at a glance:
- extraordinarily light and sensationally compact airbag system
- unlimited activation training (without cartridge)
- handle design optimized for activation: the handle can be gripped with any glove and is suitable for both left and right-handed users
- removable and compatible with all ORTOVOX AVABAG backpacks
- no electronics

About Ortovox

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!
