KLIM has developed two avalanche airbag backpacks specifically for snow powersports: the Atlas 26-liter backpack and the smaller Aspect 16-liter pack. Both KLIM backpacks are integrated with industry-leading Alpride E1 electronic multi-use systems – which it says are the lightest electronic airbag systems on the market.
Avalanche airbags are a proven technology to help prevent burial in an avalanche. They are the only avalanche safety system that does not rely on the skills and equipment of fellow riders to help you escape an avalanche. The airbags work by increasing the volume of you and your gear to help you float higher in the snow flow, improving how quickly rescuers can locate/extract you.
KLIM says it’s always asking: Is there an ingredient or process that can further improve the riding experience? It feels these bags are a big step toward safe riding.
Atlas 26 - $1,199.99; Aspect 16 - $999.99
