A new addition to the Avabag family: Ortovox Cross Rider 18 Avabag has been designed for all powder fans who don’t mind climbing a few extra meters to get the best descents.
Thanks to its Avabag airbag system, the Cross Rider 18 Avabag is a lightweight, descent-oriented avalanche airbag that still has all of the important functions for days spent riding powder. Its close fit and foamed back mean it will sit perfectly on the body and ensure maximum freedom of movement – no matter how long the descent.
The main compartment provides quick access to your emergency equipment. Other small items can easily be stowed away in the hip pocket. The aluminum locking clasp and safety leg strap guarantee that the backpack sits securely – on any descent. Our Cross Rider 18 Avabag is also well equipped for when you have to carry your skis: They can be attached securely and diagonally to the avalanche backpack using the D-skifix. Of course, there is also an ice axe and hiking pole fastening and a removable helmet net.
With its light weight and clever features, Ortovox Cross Rider 18 Avabag is ready for the most epic spray turns!

The integrated Avabag avalanche airbag system is relatively small and lightweight.
Smallest airbag compartment
The smallest avalanche motor compartment in the world. The activation unit sits inside the Venturi, creating a completely closed and robust system which functions without electricity.
The innovative welding technology used to make the airbag ensures the smallest pack size at the same time as I'm improving its resistance to tearing and leaks.
The Avabag unit is quick and easy to upgrade and is compatible with all ortovox avabag backpacks.
Avabag. Fully release-optimized thanks to ergonomic grip.
Ergonomic form in 360° design with a non-slip surface enables easiest release with all types of gloves and release grips for both left and right-handed users.
Two length positions guarantee individual adjustability. What's more, the front-facing grip improves ease of access, even in the case of awkward falls.
On the lift the grip can be stored in the zipped compartment on the shoulder strap without compromising comfort.
Burial Despite Airbag
Together with his team of experts, the Canadian avalanche researcher Pascal Haegeli analyzed 106 avalanche accidents that occurred with airbag users. The result was frightening - one in eight avalanche backpack users (12%) did not manage to activate the system during an avalanche. Regular training and our release-optimized grip can help to reduce this number in the future. Releases can be practiced as often as required without an installed cartridge to ensure that the wearer is able to react appropriately in a real situation. The AVABAG system can then be re-activated by using the pre-tension tool.
