Warning: ABS Avalanche Backpack Wireless Activation

Product warning - ABS Wireless Activation possibly faulty

2013/03/02, Graefelfing, Germany: The german manufacturer of avalanche airbag systems, ABS Peter Aschauer GmbH, warns about their wireless activations systems.

During test activations, ABS Peter Aschauer GmbH has discovered a fault in the Wireless Activation remote activation system. The fault is currently the subject of intense analysis. ABS customers who have backpacks with Wireless Activation are urgently requested not to use the remote activation technology until further notice.


A light detection fault has been discovered during test activations for Wireless Activation (remote activation). As a result, the remote activation radio signal may not be transmitted and the airbags may not be activated. ABS is currently working flat out to identify the exact cause of the fault and will inform its customers of further steps immediately upon completion of the fault analysis.

Customers who have ABS avalanche airbag with Wireless Activation are urgently requested not to rely on radio activation and instead always to activate their airbags independently by pulling the activation handle. The self-activation mechanism functions just as reliably with Wireless Activation handles as with normal activation handles.

ABS systems which are not equipped with additional Wireless Activation are not affected.

What is Wireless Activation?
Wireless Activation is radio-controlled remote activation for ABSĀ® TwinBags. If configured appropriately, a single member of the group can activate all other group members' airbags in the event of emergency. Your own ABSĀ® backpack can be always be activated independently, regardless of this.

ABS will be happy to answer any further questions on +49 89 898 789 24 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
