Arva Ride 18 Backpack - Blue Denim

ColorBlue Denim
The feeling of freedom as top priority.

The ultimate freerider backpack. Small in volume so you can wear it closer. Will not obstruct your range of movement on a ride.

For skiers looking for a small backpack that has all the functions you need and plenty of style, the RIDE 18 is guaranteed to satisfy. With a volume of 18 liters, the backpack can be worn snug against your body, giving you excellent free range of movement.

Developed in collaboration with our athlete Léo Slemett, the RIDE range is designed to satisfy both professional and amateur riders. Léo suggested the use of a strap instead of a rib over the chest allowing the user to attach a pair of gloves, for example, and a full opening at the back so you can see everything you’ve packed in the backpack.

Eco-friendly : 100% of the fabrics used for the RIDE product range are recycled. We use 300D recycled polyester as well as 150D recycled polyester lining. These backpacks are also PFC FREE.

If you're looking for a high-performance backpack you can use all year round, while at the same time minimizing your environmental impact, the RIDE 18 is the perfect choice.
Key Benefits

Attach your skis with just two clicks. Side carry (A-Frame) is particularly suitable for wide skis and provides better weight distribution on the backpack.

The use of a strap to connect the tips of the skis so that the tails are spread apart is generally recommended.

The streamlined waist belt combined with the thermoformed back panel provides enhanced flexibility and mobility throughout the day.

Because we know how essential it is to be efficient in an emergency, a pocket specially dedicated to the storage of your avalanche shovel and probe has been fitted on the front of the backpack for immediate access.

Comfortable and water-resistant, the thermoformed back will mold to the shape of your own back.

This product has been made from strong recycled polyester fabric, minimizing our impact on the environment.

We use 300D polyester as well as 150D polyester lining, both made from recycled plastics.

With the opening in the back, you can see all the gear inside your backpack in one go when preparing for a trip.

It also allows you access to your equipment while out on a ride.

A waist belt is essential for your riding sessions, but can be uncomfortable to use around town.
We have therefore designed a pocket where you can hide the waist belt behind the back, making your backpack even more streamlined.
