Mammut Avalanche Airbag System 3.0 – Safety Advisory

Mammut Airbag System 3.0, or refill kits for this airbag, sold at MEC require inspection due to a potential problem with the way deployment cable has been installed.

Mammut System 3.0 Airbags have a neon orange deployment handle; older styles with red handles are not affected.

According to Mammut, “in some cases, incorrect installation of the system may have caused significant bending of the deployment cable.” If the cable has been incorrectly installed, the airbag may not deploy as intended.

For info and instructions:

Instructions for inspecting and fixing the problem are provided on Mammut’s website: Safety Check Airbag System 3.0 as well as photos and an FAQ.
