Product Info

The Ortovox Free Rider 24 ABS is one of the most versatile avalanche packs on the market. It is fully adapted to accept a removable M.A.S.S. Unit (Modular Airbag Safety System) (Sold Separately) and comes standard with the SPS PRO2 removable back protector, that is also suitable for separate use with the included straps. The wide Neoprene-hip-belt fixes the protector safely at the back and ensures a perfect fit. If you are into touring to remote, avalanche-prone locations for that one insane line, the Free Rider 24 ABS is the pack for you.

Product Details


Nylon 840D BallisticThis strong yarn provides a great deal of abrasion protection and ensures longevity. This weave gives the fabric additional robustness and protects it from damage. Ideal for the ABS Series packs in areas which are expected to endure large applications of force.

Nylon 420D BallshadowThe 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. It is a design that doesn't compromise longevity.

HypalonOrtovox 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.
