German ABS started researching and testing their avalance airbag systems in the early 80s. Today, they offer among the best systems available.
Based on the experience of a German forester who got caught in an avalanche in the 70s, ABS was founded a few years later. The aim has always been to find ways of keeping the victim of an avalance on the surface of it, thus reducing the tremendous forces he/she is subjected to. Staying on the surface also increases the chances of a speedy recovery. Today, ABS offers a range of versatile, potentially life saving ABS-systems that could be what saves your life in an otherwise extremely exposed situation.
