Product Info

The added safety and security of an airbag is worth its weight in gold, but that huge, bulky bag can sometimes feel like overkill if you're just knocking out sidecountry laps at the resort. The ABS A-Light Airbag Base Unit is designed for maximum versatility whatever the day holds, with a modest 10L base volume that can be further expanded with the addition of the addition of 15L and 25L Extension Packs. This means you never have to compromise on safety by not bringing your airbag along for the ride, no matter how long or short the lap is.
