The new ABS s.CAPE Base Unit - developed for snowboarders and freeriders
The newly developed ABS s.CAPE Base Unit houses the heart of the legendary ABS backpacks: the airbag system. The new ABS s.Cape Base Unit is smaller and even lighter than the well-known s.LIGHT series and convinces with several innovations for professionals and ambitious athletes: A climbing harness made of a high-strength woven loop that is suitable for rope, crevasse and helicopter recovery, integrated for the first time in an avalanche backpack. The advantage: under the ABS s.CAPE Base Unit, freeriders and specialists no longer have to wear a second, annoying climbing harness in case of emergency. Another clever detail solution is the snowboard mount directly on the back, which mounts the board transversely. Finally, a dimensionally stable 3D shoulder strap makes the base unit comfortable to wear and the even more compact shape convinces with a shorter back section that also fits smaller athletes perfectly. In black-grey, the new ABS s.CAPE Unit fits the ABS s.CAPE Zip On.
Double safety with ABS Twinbags
With the TwinBag system, ABS is the only manufacturer to ensure double safety with two completely independent airbags. Both airbags are filled independently with separate valves and hold the air independently - if one valve or airbag is damaged, a second one always remains. Avalanches do not only occur on gentle meadow slopes. On the contrary: obstacles such as stones, rocks, mountain pines and broken trees can be found in the crash lane. With just one airbag without separate chambers, a crack in the airbag shell is enough to completely lose the function of the entire system! ABS has the most practical experience and therefore exclusively uses TwinBag technology with two independent airbags.
Individual ergonomic fit
With the s.Cape ABS offers an avalanche backpack with an optimal fit. The versatile adjustable straps for hips, shoulders and chest make the lightest avalanche backpack of the inventor of these products comfortable and easy to adapt to individual physical conditions. The new s.CAPE also promises an optimal fit and pleasant wearing comfort for women.
Easy ZipOn change
Thanks to the well-known ZipOn principle, s.CAPE 10-14L, s.LIGHT backpacks with 15L or 30L packing volume, aswell as the p.RIDE compact ZipOns with a packing volume of 18L, 30L or 40+10L can be attached to the corresponding base unit simply by zipping. This allows unlimited combination and application possibilities without the need to extend or modify the airbag system.
