Service Bulletin Mammut / Snowpulse Avalanche Airbag
Individual feedback and intense inspections showed that the connection between the release mechanism and the Venturi box may come loose in very rare cases at very intense use of the avalanche airbag. To exclude loss of function, we ask you to preventively re-equip this connection with the specifically developed clip. This clip prevents coming loose of the connection. Re-equipment of the Venturi clip can be performed quickly and easily by any customer.
Mammut takes the subject of safety very seriously and strives to guarantee best safety to you with our products.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your trust. We wish you a safe winter.
