Transport

Fly without limits

Travel easily with this backpack by airplane.

 

The IATA (International Air Transport Association) declares safe travel as Alpride cartridges are just like the ones found in the inflatable life jackets on airplanes. The user is allowed to travel with 2 sets of cartridges for one pack. In 2014, the IATA has changed the existing rules, creating a special category for safety inflatable devices. The Alpride device perfectly adheres to these new changes.

Alpride's history

THE ALPRIDE SYSTEM CAME INTO FRUITION WHEN THREE MOTIVATED, MOUNTAIN-LOVING ENTREPRENEURS TEAMED UP AND FOUNDED THE COMPANY IN 2009.

 

ALPRIDE’S HISTORY: 3 ENTREPRENEUR’S – ONE GREAT IDEA

Winter 2008: After three days and just as many 4,000m summits around the mythic Concordia Platz set in the Swiss Bernese Oberland. Marc-Antoine Schaer came to the realization that the existing Avalanche Airbags on the market were much too heavy and therefore very limiting.

It was at this moment that his goal quickly became clear: “We should be able to build something lighter, cheaper and more user-friendly. If we manage to achieve this, more people will get the equipment and thanks to the accessibility of this new product, more lives will be saved!”

And so the Alpride adventure began…

 

FIRST STEPS

Three entrepreneurs hit the ground running on the Alpride project. Their workshop, located in a small attic in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, becomes the theatre for many fears, frustrations, and ultimately joys, when a solution finally emerges.

While there is still much to be done, for the first time, the team of 3 is able to see a light at the end of the tunnel, reassuring that all their efforts and financial risk have not been for nothing. The Alpride system will provide the public with a product that is not only much lighter and more reliable, but also more affordable.

 

THE MOUNTAIN SAFETY VEST

Alpride successfully transformed the same technology found in inflatable life vest, a system that has proven its efficiency for more than 50 years, into an avalanche airbag.

BANQUE CANTONALE NEUCHATEL (BCN) INNOVATION AWARD

Alpride goes through round one, two, then three, and then eventually good news arrived: “You’ve won!” This award marks an important milestone for the Neuchâtel-based start-up, providing recognition, and accelerating the final phase to protect the Alpride system with three patents.

 

FINALIZATION AND RELEASE FOR ISPO 2013

The rest happens really quickly- contracts are signed, and eventually the first industrial production is underway. The workshop turns into a lab and gets endowed with professional equipment in order to do all of the TÜV tests internally and to enable device optimization.


"The AP 40 is the perfect companion if you are freeriding and mountaineering in high alpine regions.

It combines the safety of an airbag backpack, the lightness of the Alpride system, and the capacity for storing your complete equipment kit for touring on glaciers.

If you want to go big you deserve the best- with the AP40 you have just that.

Don’t head out without it!"

"The SCOTT AP32 is the first Airbag Backpack where I can’t feel any difference from a normal freeride pack.

It feels as though you are riding without an airbag.

This is why I use it every day. Additionally, all of your equipment is very accessible so that you can grab hold of what you need, when you need it."


"My SCOTT AP 24 backpack is my top choice for Freeride competition.

It's everything I want in an airbag- lightweight and has enough space for the essentials.

It's another valuable tool in my avalanche rescue kit."
