Your own safety is the best reason to use an avalanche rescue system. But there are many other compelling reasons to choose the Original ABS®. Years of practical experience.There is no other avalanche airbag manufacturer with asmuch valuable experience. This experience has led to constant refinements of the original ABS® system for more than 25 years. Examples include switching from the mono airbag to dual airbags, converting mechanical activation to pressurized activation, and changing the shape of the airbag so the user floats flat on the surface. To date, 97 %* of victims with an activated ABS® Avalanche Airbag have survived, 87 % of them completely uninjured. Leading innovator. ABS® regularly releases technical innovations to further increase the likelihood of surviving an avalanche or to improve the comfort of the avalanche system.

Backcountry Access (BCA) is a leading manufacturer of snow safety equipment, including Tracker avalanche beacons, shovels, probes, packs, snow study kits, and Float avalanche airbags. Our mission is to save lives, not just pump products. As a leader in our industry, we need to be responsible about sending people into the backcountry. They need to be equipped not just with products, but with education. That’s why we’ve invested so much in research and education.
When we talk about “fresh tracks” and “fresh ideas,” we’re not just talking about skiing powder and developing products. We’re talking about our whole approach to snow safety, rooted in thorough research and placed in proper context with even more important things like education and knowledge.
