The lightest, most reliable & powerful dual airbag on the market

For several years, through our own team and partners, our brand ARVA has played an important role in the development, production, and support of avalanche airbag systems. Studying and applying hundreds of actual accident reports, we made the choice to innovate our own specific product in this field. After years of research and development, we are proud to present the lightest, most powerful and reliable dual airbag systems on the market.

What is an airbag backpack?

The airbag system is a new standard in safety equipment, and meant to be combined with use of a beacon, probe, and shovel. It is equipped with a simple lockable/rotating handle : when pulled for deployment, it fills the airbag in just a few seconds. The system increases a victim’s volume, which enables her to be brought to the surface of snow based on the physical phenomenon of “reverse segregation” : largest volumes rise to the surface.

680 grams : the lightest airbag system on the market

The inflation system of the REACTOR has been designed to offer a compact, but also the lightweight avalanche airbag system of the market with only 680 g.

2 airbags & the most powerful inflation system

The REACTOR offers 2 separate airbags to double the security and airbags are shaped to protect your head and maximize the rise-to-surface effect in an avalanche. Also, the trigger handle is ergonomically positioned and designed, and the canister can be removed from the system to practice.

Refillable & exchangeable cartridges

The cylinders are made with high-quality materials. You can refill you cartridge at dedicated refill centers, and use a steel cartridge or a carbon one.
