As the airbag balloon needs to be extremely robust, we have revised it completely using production technologies from the automotive industry. A detailed tour plan including studying avalanche reports, weather forecasts and maps, selecting the route and a situative assessment on site are essential for any freerider. A full set of avalanche safety equipment is another basic requirement, as is the ability to use it correctly through training and regular practice. The Protection Airbag System can also protect you from mechanical injuries. It protects the head, neck and chest area in emergencies and provides the best possible protection from burial and life-threatening trauma injuries.

So you don't end up weighing down your lightweight set up with a heavy pair of skins, Dynafit has developed a lightweight, long-gliding Speedskin designed for seamless integration with your Manaslu skis. Dynafit's newly redesigned Speedskins feature a three-layer construction designed to maximize glide, minimize weight, and keep snow from sticking to your skins. A waterproof membrane is placed behind the velour to prevent moisture from contaminating the adhesive, while the fur of the skin is treated with a water-repellent finish to minimize snow build-up. The skins are still equipped with Dynafit's Speed Glide finish for exceptional performance over long and rolling approaches, and maintain the notorious Snow Leopard Grip for added security in steep and demanding terrain.
