PIEPS
JETFORCE TOUR RIDER

The middle-sized PIEPS JETFORCE TOUR RIDER is ideal for day trips.


FIRST ELECTRONIC SYSTEM

with jet-fan technology that only needs ambient air for inflation.


Multiple Deployments

The compact Lithium-Ion battery supports min. 4 airbag deployments per charge and is air-travel friendly.

 


Automatic airbag deflation

The airbag deflates automatically after 3 minutes. In case of emergency the pressure on the buried person is reduced and a big air pocket is created.


ZERO ADDITIONAL COSTS

Because the system uses jet-fan inflation instead of compressed-gas cylinders, PIEPS JETFORCE can be deployed for training without additional costs.

 

 

 

JET-FAN & MOTOR

The 200-liter JETFORCE airbag can be filled in less than 3 seconds thanks to the jet-fan rotor that spins at 60,000 revolutions per minute (by comparison, a hairdryer spins at 4,000-20,000 rpm).
Periodic refilling guarantees the bag stays inflated, even in case of small tears or leaks. After 3 minutes, the airbag automatically deflates, reducing pressure on the user. In the case of a full burial, this can create an hollow space that increases the chance of survival.

 

 

 

MATERIAL

The JetForce airbag material needs no special packing and folding technique and can be repacked quickly and easily. The bag is made with 315d Cordura® airbag-fiber technology, which offers exeptional strength at very low weight.

 

 

LI-ION BATTERY

WORKS EVEN AT -30°C
The JetForce-system use a specially designed Lithium-Ion battery, which generates high current even at very cold temperatures (-30°C).

 

LONG LIFE
500 charge cycles ensure a long-lifetime, self-discharge for easy storage properties.

 

BATTRY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The intelligent battery management system (BMS) is together with temperature sensors responsible for an optimized battery-performance as well as protection (e.g. depth decharge and charging at temperature below zero). 

 

 

SELF-DIAGNOSIS

The self-diagnosis checks the operational capability of the system on every startup and performs additional checks while armed.

An inflated avalanche airbag increases the chance of survival:

With airbag

89% with airbag

78% without airbag

 

 

An avalanche airbag minimizes the critical burial risk.

20% with airbag

47% without airbag

 

 

PIEPS Jetforce is also helping in the case of burial!

200L That’s how big the air pocket will become through the Jetforce after the automatic airbag-evacuation

In critical burial, an existing air pocket increases the probability of survival. According to statistics, the person concerned fails to trigger the airbag in 20% of serious cases. Reason is the uncertainty with the systems.
In critical burial, an existing air pocket increases the probability of survival:

  • With air pocket: 1,5-2 hours
  • Without air pocket: 14-35 minutes

Only an inflated airbag helps!

According to statistics, the person concerned fails to trigger the airbag in 20% of serious cases. Reason is the uncertainty with the systems. Professional avalanche experts, such as Mountain guides & rescuers, practice regularly

 

Increase the familiarity of your Jetforce!

Attention: Although you have an airbag, never go on tour without beacon, probe and shovel!
