Millet commitment into mountain security: select the technologies that allow you to practice your favorite activities in the best security conditions.
This winter, Millet gear up its freerando and freeride backpacks with two advanced technologies: the RECCO and ALPRIDE systems, in addition with the regular security equipment (DVA, probe, shovel). Together with Millet's know-how, these technologies are integrated in our most technical and functional ski backpacks to level your security up. In a process of awareness, we organize a dozen of training sessions to approach the elementary notions of mountain security: the Safety Academy.
The airbag concept is based on the physical principle of inverse segregation: in a flow of granualr material (landslide, avalanche, etc...) the largest items rise to the surface and the smallest gather at the bottom. Once the airbag has inflated, the ALPRIDE system maximises the skier's volume ans thus minimises the risk of burial.
LIGHTWEIGHT & COMPACT
The system is positioned at the bottom of the pack, and the user forgets about it with pack on back. Its compact size leaves enough room to carry all other safety equipment (shovel and probe).
The airbag is made up of a resistant fabric, providing an outstanding durability. The "U" shape protects and supports the head while keeping the freedom of movement to ride.

THE RECCO SYSTEM
The RECCO technology makes you searchable to professional rescuers in the event of an avalanche accident.
The RECCO reflector in this product makes you searchable in the event of an avalanche accident or if you're lost in the backcountry.
Reflectors require no activation to function and have a virtually unlimited lifespan. RECCO recommends wearing multiple reflectors for optimal performance.
RECCO detectors are used by search and rescue professionals to locate RECCO reflectors at more than 800 ski resorts, rescue organizations ans helicpter bases worldwide. Visit RECCO.com to view the complete list.
As security isn't just a speach, we organize several training sessions in french ski resorts and partner's places. Join us !
