Snowpulse 3.0 Technology

Smarter. Better. The all-new 3.0 System. Introducing the new ultralight, ultra-compact avalanche airbag system from Snowpulse. Featuring an intuitive handle with adjustable height, new user-friendly set-up and the lightest, most compact system ever designed by Snowpulse.

The Handle

In an emergency situation, deployment of the airbag needs to be fast and intuitive. Studies have shown that in an extreme situation, many users are over-challenged and do not manage to activate the airbag. Snowpulse’s new deployment handle is more intuitive to operate and is also height-­adjustable to allow it to be adapted to the wearer’s body height. The deployment handle is now a bright orange color to make it even more visible. There is no change to the tried-and-tested “T” shape of our ­deployment handle. The handle can be folded to allow compact storage in the shoulder strap.

The Inflation System

The Inflation System 3.0 describes the component used to deploy the airbag. The system activates the deployment mechanism which opens the pressure cartridge with a pin and fills the airbag. The integrated air volume amplifier also sends ambient air to the airbag in addition to the gas stored in the pressure cartridge. One of Snowpulse’s objectives for the new development was to bring the air volume amplifier and deployment mechanism together in a single housing in order to save space and weight. The inflation system is reliable, low-maintenance and extremely user-friendly: just screw the cartridge in and you’re ready to go!

The Weight

The Snowpulse 3.0 is Snowpulse’s lightest airbag system of all time and weighs less than 1 liter of water. At less than 1kg, this is the lightest system they have ever developed.

The Removable Airbag System (RAS)

Reliability: Always ready in an emergency: any condition ready. The avalanche airbag is a piece of safety equipment that needs to work with 100% certainty and reliability in an emergency – irrespective of weather, temperature and external pressure. Only pressure cartridges offer precisely the reliability of a dependable energy store over a period of years. This technology also guarantees a very high initial pressure to unfold the airbag reliably even in situations of external loading. Our focus of the latest development was on making the system even more user-friendly and further reducing maintenance.
