The latest generation of Ortovox s Free Ride line, the Ortovox Free Rider 24 features the SPS PRO2 removable back protector, that also can be used separately with the included straps. The wide Neoprene-hip-belt fixes the protector safely at the back and ensures a perfect fit. Whether you're into full-day BC tours or just ripping in the slackcountry, the Free Rider 24 is the pack for you.
Hypalon Ortovox was one of the first companies to use hypalon in the construction of their packs. The material is now used anywhere that sharp, pointy things try to attack the backpack and backpacker alike. Hypalon is resistant to cold and virtually indestructible.
Nylon 840D Ballistic This strong fabric provides abrasion protection and ensures longevity. The 840D weave gives the fabric additional robustness and protects it from damage, and is ideal for packs in areas which are expected to endure high stress.
Nylon 420D Ballshadow The distinctive ripstop interlocking thread pattern and a PU coating for greater water resistance result in higher abrasion protection and tear strength. From a visual perspective, the relief-like surface structure has a very technical appearance that doesn't compromise longevity.
