Ortovox offer more than just different colours for women. Their Cross Rider S is tailored for the female anatomy: shoulder and waist straps adapt perfectly to the female body, and the lower weight and smaller volume are based on their needs. Besides that, the Cross Rider S comes along with the same equipment package as the men's version does. The backpack features ski and snowboard as well as ice axe and hiking pole fastening. It has a front and rear access to the main compartment and a separate safety compartment. The backpack also offers a chest strap with signal whistle and a hydration system compatibility.
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!
