logoOne of the leaders in avalanche safety equipment. Transceivers, backpacks, Avalanche Airbag backpacks, shovels, probes and much more. They have all you need to be ready for your next backcountry trip.

Mammut has been working intensively on the topic of mountain safety for years and is doing everything in its power to keep the risks of mountain sports as low as possible.

Calling all freeriders: the innovative, removable avalanche airbag system from Snowpulse (R.A.S. Removable Airbag System) is now integrated in the successful Nirvana Ride Mammut snow backpack. The R.A.S. was developed by Snowpulse for efficient handling and reliable operation. The system can even removed by the user and integrated in another R.A.S.-compatible backpack. The avalanche airbag significantly reduces the risk of being buried in an avalanche, considerably improving chances of survival.

Powdermania is an official partner of Mammut since May 2012.
