Our original Float avalanche airbags were designed to be light, affordable, and easy to use. They have lived up to that since 2010, as the best-selling avalanche airbags in North America. In 2022, we’re making your life even easier. In addition to our Float 2.0 compressed air system, we’re offering the new Float E2, our electronic airbag system that’s fully rechargeable and approved for airline travel. With the Float E2, it’s possible to perform multiple deployments in the field—or in your garage. We’re not advocating getting involved in multiple avalanches—or even one, for that matter. But we’ve always been advocates of regularly practicing with your equipment. And we’re all human. Even us “experts” at BCA have inadvertent deployments once in a while. It’s nice to have a backup so you don’t have to call it a day after a mistake. FLOAT™ E2 PACKS NONSTOP TRAVEL TO ALL DESTINATIONS Our new Float E2 avalanche airbag packs use an Alpride E2 supercapacitor system to store energy that powers the compressor upon deployment. Supercapacitors store and release energy based on electromechanical properties rather than a chemical reaction like in rechargeable batteries. This makes supercapacitor performance much more reliable in cold temperatures. For the same reason, the energy stored in a supercapacitor releases faster when activated for deployment. The new E2 engine is 40 percent smaller and 25 percent lighter than the existing Alpride E1 system, with a 162-liter airbag. Like the E1, the E2 is TSA-approved for hassle-free airline travel. While the E2 system makes it easy to travel by air, our innovative Side Stash pocked and Back Stash zip make it easier to travel on snow—without stopping to hydrate, swap hat/gloves/eyewear, or even skis—just rip ‘em, stash ‘em and go! FLOAT™ E2-25 TURBO Our dedicated sled-specific Float E2 pack, the E2-25 Turbo offers multiple options for external shovel carry, as well as an insulated internal electronics pocket. Includes all our standard Float E2 features: waterproof coated nylon, Side Stash pocket, Back Stash zip, internal shovel/probe carry system, curved side access zip, hip belt pocket, and “cooling fin” backpanel ventilation. Available in two sizes: S/M or L/XL.

The batteries also help keep the supercapacitors at full charge when not in use. AA alkaline batteries allow for one additional deployment and is capable of keeping the system charged for up to three months of normal use. AA lithium batteries allow for three additional deployments and is capable of keeping the system charged for up to five months of normal use. See the Float E2 user manual for more information.
