About the Ortovox Free Rider 26 S

The Ortovox Free Rider 26 S women's snowboard/ski backpack is ideal for freeride and backcountry adventures. With space for storing essentials and the facility to carry skis or a snowboard, snowshoes, ice axe, helmet and poles on the exterior.

Internally the pack can be fitted with the CLASP SPINE PROTECTOR, this optional extra turns the standard Free Rider Pack into a motorcycle standard back protector. A dedicated inner pocket of the pack ensures the correct fit for the extra.

As part of Ortovox's environmental commitment, the pack is PFC-free and constructed from recycled polyester making the unit climate natural. Ride on knowing the construction of your bag hasn't caused any necessary harm to the environment.

Integrated side straps allow you to cinch down the carrying load to restrict pack movement on the upper back.
