Firun / Rescue Sledge

Firun is a foldable rescue carriage, which in closed position can be transported comfortable on the back. The carriage is developed on an air body. Those benefits, which bring this inflatable rescue system with itself, are enormous. The use of air makes it possible to reduce the weight of the product substantially, to absorb impacts and to simplify the storage and the transport of the carriage. The increasing enthusiasm at the ski experience in the free area, off the secured runways became the trend in alpine winter sports. Firun is a reaction to that, a rescue system that can be used in the hard-to-travel area.
