ABS Airbag is a new partner of Hotel Adula!
As the inventor of the avalanche airbag, ABS® revolutionized winter sports in 1985. 35 years later, the product design is now completely renewed, following the principles simple & safe – light & fast: the new A.LIGHT is designed for all freeriders, free tourers and off-piste skiers looking for the best powder. Thanks to the unique ABS® TwinBags Plus system, two independent airbags release in an emergency in a volume-optimized shape, significantly increasing the likelihood of staying on the surface. The striking, clean product design with a well thought-out carrying system and minimalist 10-liter pack volume offers space for a shovel, probe and first aid kit in an integrated safety compartment – any unnecessary packing volume is dispensed with. This makes the backpack particularly compact, so there is no longer any reason not to have an avalanche backpack with you in powder. In the BaseUnit there is room for a hydration system, for example. If additional equipment, such as a helmet or jacket, needs to be stowed during the ascent, this can be attached to the backpack via a modular strap system. If additional pack volume is needed on some mountain days, the A.LIGHT can be flexibly upgraded via the new extension system with packs in two sizes (15l and 25l). Optimized for emergency safety, the pack not only features a color-coded Emergency Flap for immediate access to the integrated safety compartment, but is also equipped with a standard leg loop so that the pack cannot be pulled over the head in the event of an avalanche. This loop can be neatly stowed in a special pocket in the hip belt for transport. An insulated pocket that prevents temperature-related battery loss of the cell phone completes the designed safety package. In addition to the safety features, the carrying experience has also been optimized. While the special back padding protects against falling on the shovel and probe, the padded carrying straps and an individually adjustable back plate with two bendable aluminum struts ensure the perfect ergonomic fit and maximum comfort during ascent and descent.
