POC Launch RECCO Equipped Dimension Avalanche Backpack

Press release

November 02, 2022

Long-time RECCO brand partner POC, are excited to present their most advanced backpack yet – the Dimension Avalanche Backpack. Incorporating POC’s new and advanced ​​Alpride E2 Electronic Airbag System, the Dimension is the perfect tool to support enhanced protection during all winter backcountry adventures.

The collaboration between POC and RECCO was pioneered with ski helmets 15 years ago. In 2015, POC became the first brand to integrate rescue reflectors into biking helmets after the introduction of the RECCO SAR Helicopter Detector, which is used to look for missing people year-round.

Integrated into the Dimension backpack, the RECCO reflector offers a second chance of searchability in addition to a transceiver in the event of an avalanche. The fluorescent orange color of the Dimension ensures perfect visibility even during the worst white-out and high-quality materials and construction guarantee lasting durability and absolute reliability.

"Research shows that the best chance to avoid burial in an avalanche is with an avalanche airbag. We developed our most advanced backpack yet, the Dimension Avalanche Backpack, to create a convenient, practical, hassle-free system with zero compromises. And by integrating technology such as the embedded RECCO® reflector which makes a user searchable to rescue teams we are able to enhance the role of smart technology and add a layer of safety which does not need batteries or an internet connection," says Johan Weman, Technology Exploration Director, POC.

 

Besides the Alpride E2 Electronic Airbag System, the backpack offers a left or right side mounting height-adjustable deployment handle, airbag compartment with burst-zipper, fleeced goggle zip-pocket, zip-pocket for valuables with key-clip and a pouch for a first aid kit in the main compartment.

POC continues to break new ground when it comes to safety on the mountains, no matter on the slopes or in the backcountry. Their newest Dimension Avalanche Backpack shows their commitment to making their customer’s adventures as safe as possible,” says Fredrik Steinwall, CEO at RECCO.

RECCO technology makes outdoor enthusiasts searchable to rescuers in case of an avalanche accident or when lost in the outdoors. The technology builds on a two-part radar system. Rescuers carry RECCO detectors that send out search signals which are echoed by RECCO reflectors, carried by the user. RECCO detectors are used worldwide at more than 900 ski resorts and mountain rescue organizations in 32 countries.  

The Dimension Avalanche Backpack is available online and in stores in Europe from November and the rest of the world from early December 2022.
