Williston, VT (March 5, 2014) –Inspections conducted by Mammut have shown that there is an assembly problem affecting individual Mammut and Snowpulse brand avalanche airbags from the Winter 2011/2012 and Winter 2012/2013 production seasons. The problem is an improperly screwed in connector between the deployment mechanism and the Ventouri valve.

This issue affects Mammut and Snowpulse avalanche airbags with Inflation System 2.0 from the 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 production seasons. Avalanche airbags made before or after these seasons are unaffected. However, all airbag owners are advised to check the connection as part of their regular equipment check.

Mammut requests that owners of units from the seasons specified inspect the connection in accordance with instructions available on their website HYPERLINK "http://www.mammut.ch/en/airbags_aufruf_zur_kontrolle.html" here. Because this problem could potentially result in a loss of function in the event of use, owners should discontinue use of their airbag immediately if it is affected by this assembly issue.

If a unit is identified as having an improperly assembled connector, the owner should contact Mammut customer service to arrange a free repair. Customer service contacts can be found below.
