AIRBAG SYSTEM E1

The brand new Alpride E1 is a fully electronical avalanche airbag,

its supercapacitor technology replace the traditional Li-ion battery

and results in the lightest electronical device on the market.

SUPERCAPACITOR
TECHNOLOGY
Same performance
from -30°C to +40°C

Supercapacitors are capable of storing electrical energy without any chemical reaction (unlike lithium-ion or lithium-poly batteries) and are thus not sensitive to lower temperatures, meaning you get the same performance from -30°C to +40°C. Supercapacitors are also lighter than “traditional” batteries.

2x AA BATTERIES
Recharge with only
2 x AA batteries

The supercapacitors in the E1 can be recharged with two AA batteries in just 40 minutes, the easiest solution in the mountains, far away from electrical outlets and civilisation.

RECHARGE WITH USB
Multiple inflation for user practice and zero cost

The E1 can also be recharged using a micro-USB port in 20 minutes (with a standard charger or any USB-compatible energy source: powerbank, solar, etc.). You can practice inflating the airbag as much as you want and without any cost in terms of recharging or changing cartridges.

NO CARTRIGES
& NO LI-ION BATTERY
Flying without restrictions

The supercapacitors are passive electronic elements and are not subject to any restrictions for transport, shipment or storage. Finally, THE solution for flying without restrictions and difficulties.

LIGHTWEIGHT
Full system weight
1280g

The lightest electrical system on the market. The entire E1 system weighs just 1,280 g, barely 150g heavier than the 2.0 airbag system, making it without a doubt the lightest electrical airbag available on the market.

RADIAL COMPRESSOR
DESIGN
high pressure for optimal airbag inflation in all conditions

The E1 compressor design is the same as that in the latest generation car turbochargers. This radial compressor technology provides high-pressure, fast inflation.

HUGE AUTONOMY
3 months autonomy​

Two AA batteries provide the airbag with 3 months of autonomy. Your E1 airbag is ready for use all winter long, without you having to worry about recharging it. It’s always ready to hit the slopes.

AUTO-TEST
& LED INDICATORS
Permanent monitoring of the system for total safety

Each time the E1 system is turned on, the electronics perform a self-test to check the function of more than 15 parameters and components of the E1. The LEDs visible from the outside of the bag indicate the status and charge level of the E1 system:  The utmost safety guaranteed.
