Size chart for ABS - Avalanche Backpacks

The perfect size backpack for freeriding + lightweight ABS carbon cartridge

ABS were the first ones to establish airbag backpacks. But that doesn't mean they rest on their laurels. A few years ago, ABS launched the P.RIDE system, the first partner system on the market.
With P.RIDE you can activate your own airbag, your buddy’s airbag when he or she is riding on a section individually, or you can activate the airbag of your entire group. Group members are synchronized automatically when they simultaneously open their activation handles
The P.RIDE Compact base unit features the ABS P.RIDE System and the ABS® exclusive TwinBag technology with two independent airbags.
The P.RIDE Compact base unit is suitable for people between 1.60m and 1.85m and is compatible with p.RIDE compact Zip-Ons and s.LIGHT compact Zip-Ons.
This set includes the P.RIDE Compact base unit and the Compact 18 Zip-On. 18 litre storage space is perfect for freeride days in the backcountry. The Zip-On offers enough space for safety equipment, drinks and snacks, as well as some extra clothes.

Carbon cartridge
The ABS P.RIDE Inflator is an ultra-light carbon cartridge for maximum weight reduction for your ABS P.RIDE Base Unit.
