A new product further enhances the Safe Collection, and will be presented at ISPO 2016: SAFE 30, backpack with a 30-liter capacity for winter use with integrated ALPRIDE Airbag system and RECCO reflector.
Together with the avalanche safety equipment (arva, shovel and probe), the Airbag increases the probability of survival in case of accident. ALPRIDE technology has led to the development of an Airbag that thanks to its rounded shape, offers maximum protection against upper body and head injury and excellent floating in an avalanche, as it prevents deep burial in the snow.
Pulling the handle will enable the airbag, releasing the gas from a cartridge that inflates the airbag in three seconds via an internal valve. Weighing just 1,2 kg, it is the lightest Airbag system currently available on the market.
Design, development and tests on the snow are presented in this video: THE SAFE COLLECTION.
ALPRIDE SET CARTRIDGE
Every airbag has 2 cartridges:
– Cartridge filled with ARGON: this gas guarantees excellent inflation speed. It contains 15 litres of expanded gas with an internal pressure of 180 bars.
– Cartridge filled with CO2: this gas guarantees optimum airbag expansion and volume. It contains 30 litres of expanded gas with an internal pressure of 70 bars. It is the same cartridge used for motorbike airbags.
It is the mixture of the two gases that guarantees an optimum inflation speed of 3 seconds.
