Mammut Rocker Removable Airbag 15 L version 3.0 Marine colour way super light weight freeriding backpack for lift based off piste, major improvement on last years Rocker RAS pack
The rocker packs are light weight and super slim fitting, a sensible choice from Mammut the new version 3.0 is lighter than previous years and is only 2090g with a carbon cylinder.
The great thing about the Removable Airbag System is that it allows the user to independently install the system in a removable airbag-compatible backpack and install/ remove it as required. This allows you to use the backpack either with the airbag system (e.g. freeriding) or without (e.g. for a day on secured trails). It also allows you to always select the ideal backpack for each application, the airbag a square airbag that deploys behind the wearer’s head however it still has some shape over the shoulders so gives the head up position in an avalanche.
The Rocker 15 is the most compact airbag of this range and is ideal for lift based off piste and a small day sack. However there is a full 15L of space and lots of people find this plenty for lift based off piste,
Mammut Snowpulse are only offering a carbon cylinder similar to the Ortovox ones, which is approx half the weight of the steel cylinders, on the options above you can select the pack only, with airbag, or airbag with steel cylinder or airbag with carbon cylinder.
Option is backpack only (no airbag fitted) or the Rocker with the airbag pre installed and fitted.
What it says above no cylinder option you just pay for either the Rocker Backpack or the Rocker Backpack with airbag fitted.
Carbon 300 Bar Europe and Rest of the World
The new Carbon cylinder weighs in at only 235g empty and approx 310g full, significant weight saving. All other details the same as the standard 300 bar Steel.
If you are looking just to buy a Carbon cylinder to update your current Snowpulse or Mammut pack then please see the links at the bottom of the page.
Aluminium 207 Bar Refillable US and Can and the EU
The aluminium 207 bar is a refillable cylinder with pressure gauge, ideal if you want to keep practising inflating your airbag, they can be refilled at almost all dive shops and paint ball centres. They are heavier at 630g filled and longer than the 300 bar models, there is the same amount of air inside as the other cylinders it just a lower pressure system. WHY? Well in the US and Canada the regulations are different about filling these types of cylinders, plus the flight restrictions used to say 250ml, however this changed on the 1st Jan 2013 so you can now fly across Europe with this cylinder.
Flying with your Avalanche Airbag.
Please see our section on this here and what to do, it is much easier than it used to be. Internet talk about it being difficult is out of date or talking about the position in the USA and Canada which is a different position to Europe and the rest of the world.
