TWO RESCUE SYSTEMS
THE ALL-NEW INTEGRATED AVALANCHE SYSTEM
The Integrated Avalanche System is a simple yet revolutionary innovation that can be activated with one single activation handle.
IAS combines an avalanche-airbag and breathing system that diverts CO2 from fresh-air intake. The activation handle also includes the mouthpiece for the breating system. If you pull the handle the mouthpiece will be parted and can be placed in the mouth via a flexible hose. By activating all rescue systems simultaneously in just one action you can rely on two different survival systems within seconds.
ONE PULL ONLY
If you are buried under an avalanche oxygen is obviously essential to your survival. IAS is the first ever avalanche rescue system that integrates and combines solutions for burial and suffocation with just one movement. After pulling the activation handle you place the integrated mouthpiece into your mouth. To ensure oxygen supply, the handle draws fresh air from the surrounding snow, because even wet snow contains enough air to breathe. Special valves separate fresh, breathable air from the exhaled carbon dioxide. A tube drains the CO2 to the rear of the backpack. By separating inhaled from exhaled air, the IAS allows a longer survival time below the snow. The kink-proof though flexible tube protects from injuries.
The Alpride airbag ist hard to beat for efficiency. The 150l airbag is inflated in 3 seconds. With an increased volume and wider lift surface the airbag can prevent burial or reduce the burial depth. The complete system’s weight is 1.2 kg. It is one of the lightest on the market. Taking the Alpride airbag on an airplane is no problem as well.
