Product Info

The Ortovox Free Rider 20L S Avabag Airbag is an extremely well-designed pack best suited for short tours, sidecountry laps or resort riding in avy terrain. With enough room for all your gear plus food, water and a layer, the Free Rider 20L S is designed to integrate with Ortovox's Avabag airbag system (not included). The addition of an SPS FLEX back protector, built from eight pads that remain flexible in cold weather, makes the Free Rider 20L S especially well-equipped for riders that like to go big. The "S" denotes a short back length, suitable for riders of smaller stature.
