Detailed description

The Aqua Free Rider 22 airbag backpack from Ortovox. Ortovox has completely updated its bestseller around the new AVABAG system, to offer a bag which is ready for the piste and gives maximum protection.  The "S" is for 'short', since all of Ortovox's 'S' backpacks have a shorter back panel, making them perfect for women or for men with a shorter than average back. The shoulder and thigh straps are also adapted to the female body shape.

This new bag from the Ortovox range is entirely adjustable - leave the Airbag system at home for days with the family and install it for your off-piste ski days! Adjust your bag to just how you like it.


Please note that this backpack is fitted with the Ortovox AVABAG unit, but the trigger unit (gas bottle) is sold separately

Heavier than the Ascent model, the Free Rider still holds its own and offers maximum protection. Weighing in at 1380g (without airbag system), the new Free Rider is extremely well balanced for excellent freeride performance.

Ortovox has invested a lot of effort into developing the SPS FLEX protector, a versatile unit integrating a back protector into the backpack panel. Built from eight pads that remain comfortably flexible even in the cold, the TÜV-certified protector adapts to the body and absorbs impact through the immediate hardening of the foam.
The broad hip belt and the avalanche backpack’s body-integrating silhouette ensure a perfect back fit for maximum safety. The interior of this freeride backpack with Airbag has been completely redesigned. 22 litres of true, fully usable volume have been wrapped around the AVABAG unit. The exterior of the bag offers all of the necessary freeride elements, and fixing systems for helmet and snowboard have been optimised.

This light, comfortable and extremely technical backpack is designed to help you in skiing off-piste, with its classic and well-thought-out characteristics such as diagonal ski attachments, an ice axe holder and a rope fastening.

As a pioneer of safety, Ortovox presents a totally new Airbag system for this season, aimed at keeping weight to a minimum.  The all new AVABAG from Ortovox is quite simply the most lightweight and compact on the market. The small trigger system is integrated into the inside of the inflation unit, forming a robust, entirely closed system.

The advantages of the AVABAG system at a glance:
- The world's smallest and lightest 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

AVABAG Airbag system

AVABAG is the world's lightest airbag system!Ortovox has managed to cut its weight down to 640g, thanks to an innovative construction: the fabric is made without stitching or additional waterproofing, and the inflation unit is extremely minimalist.

With a reduced weight and volume of only 1.8 litres, AVABAG is the world's smallest and lightest Airbag system. One other feature of the AVABAG system is the option it gives to practise releases. You can train for deployment without a cartridge in place, as many times as you need, to help you prepare for the worst.

The avabag's handle is designed to be perfectly ergonomic and optimise the trigger mechanism when it's needed. The non-slip handle also offers a 360° shape which allows an easy trigger with all types of glove. 
With adjustable length, the system has been designed to guarantee optimal individual fit.
