Keep on rockin' in the backcountry.
For riders who like to travel light in the backcountry, but want to keep it safe, Mammut created the streamlined Rocker RAS Airbag Backpack. RAS airbag technology adds an extra dimension of safety to backcountry touring so you can ski and ride with greater confidence when you're far from the resort, and it provides space for everything you would normally bring on tours including: avy tools, water, and extra layers.
Obviously, the safest policy is to avoid avalanches altogether, but unexpected things happen, and when they do, the Ride can inflate within three seconds to help keep you on the surface of a slide and shield your head and core from trauma. Just pull the shoulder-mounted deployment handle to inflate the bag, and the padded waist belt, safety leg strap, and sternum strap will keep the pack securely attached to you in the turmoil of a slide. After deployment, deflate the bags and pack them back up according to instructions and remember that the compressed air canister needs to be replaced. You can even remove the airbag system entirely if you want a lightweight in-bounds pack, or swap it between all RAS packs to fine-tune your carrying capacity.
Please note that this system does not include the Refillable Compressed Air Cartridge, which is available separately (MAM0939). And please remember, this airbag system is NOT a guarantee that you will survive an avalanche; get educated, get the right tools, travel with partners, and be smart out there.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I originally bought this to use on backcountry adventures, when it arrived I fell in love with the sleek shape and size I have absolutely used this for far more than just back country! I have taken it on multiple splitboarding tours and its perfect for a day trip, it can hold it all; shovel, probe, h20 bladder, the airbag, snacks and an extra layer. I am a smaller framed woman so the versatility of the straps to adjust the fit has been wonderful!
Hi, does this include a cartridge/canister? Thanks!
Hey Paul, this does not include the Refillable Compressed Air Cartridge, which is available separately (MAM0939), though it currently doesn't look like it is in stock. Feel free to give a shout to my direct line 801.204.4547 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions or if there's anything I can do for you! Cheers, Connor
