Klim Aspect 16L Avalanche Bag - Buoyancy or Bust
Northerners’ best season is on the horizon—winter. With winter comes cold, with cold comes snow, and those that know snow know it’s time to start prepping for sled season. Sledders far and wide can smell the pow coming. When the sled storm arrives and delivers its first sheet of white gold, you want to be prepared to shred. Klim knows the importance of being prepared because snow machining is a different breed of Powersports. They understand how intense it is to ride mountains and the risks sledders face. From cold temperatures to unpredictable terrain, Klim filled a void in the industry and developed gear to tame the elements. They’ve launched a piece of equipment that meets the unique demands of a sledder. By teaming up with Avalanche Safety Solutions, Avalanche Alliance, and Alpride, Klim engineered the Avalanche Air Bags (Avy bags) to bring added security and confidence to the rider experience.
Riding the mountains in the winter is intense. Snow country can be treacherous and those that take on the challenge know the risks of the snow dance: unpredictable terrain. An avalanche is one of the most powerful geologic events that occur and requires that you heed caution. Upwards of 90% of them are triggered by the active rider. Scientists can’t predict when they happen but what they can do is provide levels of hazard based on different conditions. That being said, getting swept up and buried in an avalanche isn’t entirely off the table…or slab. Klim understood the assignment developing the advanced Avy bags, helping you to defend the seemingly undefendable. The Avy bags are designed to keep you on top of the flowing chaos. Did you know that the human body is 3 times denser than avalanche debris? You’re welcome. What that equates to is you sinking to the bottom and being buried with a lower chance of rescue…and survival. A deployed airbag gives you more mass and more mass helps keep you on or close to the surface. Inverse segregation, what does it mean, what does it mean? In layman's terms, objects of bigger size have a greater chance of staying higher in rolling debris…ahem, avalanche.
The Avy bag is compact, lightweight, and houses Alpride’s advanced E2 airbag system. It packs a punch, a snow punch. Weighing just under 7 pounds as the lightest on the market, the quick-charging supercapacitor operates deployment when triggered. It's also weatherproof, ambidextrous, and flight-safe! Klim adapted the Avy bag specifically for snowmobilers by integrating R&D from professional riders. Automotive tested and LCD equipped, the Avy bag has 16 liters of backpack volume for storing equipment and meeting all your shred-sesh needs. Molded, reflective, and emergency-ready, Klim gives you the peace of mind to search for new boundaries and then break them. The pow-stoke is growing and the two-stroke cologne is flowing. Calling all sled-heads, winter is coming.
