ABS Avalanche Airbags

The 1980’s gave way for the first avalanche airbag – the ABS (Avalanche Balloon Secutem) system was created by skier and entrepreneur Peter Aschauer after a first-hand avalanche experience. Since then ABS has consistently innovated airbags – from the twin-bags system, to the zip-on systems and more, ABS has been at the forefront of avalanche technology. All of the new ABS airbags are equipped with the Twin-Bag ABS avalanche airbag system, which utilizes two bags, instead of one – meaning that if one airbag is punctured or torn during an avalanche there is another bag to keep you afloat. The canister used to deploy the airbags is a steel canister filled with compressed nitrogen gas, which is a purer gas with a quicker expansion rate and better performance in extreme temperatures. Plus, ABS offers customization of storage space with their innovative zip-on attachments that allow users to change storage size by simply zipping off a pack and then zipping another one on. SnowBigDeal was proud to be the first in the United States to offer ABS Avalanche Airbags and we are still proud today to offer these great packs for great prices.
