More and more professional freestyle skiers and snowboarders rely on the ABS® TwinBag system and are leading the way. The multiple winner of the Freeride World Tour – Xavier De Le Rue – survived a massive avalanche accident almost unharmed thanks to ABS. Get to know our ABS team and find out why athletes have opted for ABS.
30 years of research and development have made the ABS airbag system what it is today. A sophisticated and proven system that aims to prevent burial in an avalanche and help victims pulled along by the snow mass to come out as unharmed as possible. ABS backpacks are recognized worldwide, tested by the German Technical Control Board, TÜV, and perfectly suited to meet the requirements of winter sport athletes.
All alpine organizations, associations, professional and trade organizations agree that it is essential to remain on the surface since that is where your chances of survival are greatest. Those who have to live with the avalanche risk on a daily basis know about the dangers of the mountain and equip themselves as well as possible. This is why not only freeriders and snowboarders but also mountain rescue organizations, piste patrollers, mountaineering schools and heli-skiing companies use ABS airbag systems.
