A flotation device at first glance might not seem like a necessary piece of safety equipment for ATV and snowmobile riders. But for those who ride on frozen lakes and rivers or in avalanche zones, the Nebulus could prove a lifesaver.
When submerged in water, it will inflate automatically, providing flotation for up to 1,000 pounds of machine and rider. Even if you manage to climb back on to dry land yourself, it will mark the position of your sunken pride and joy, making for easier recovery.
In an avalanche, riders can pull a ripcord and hang on. Believe it or not, you can actually float to the top of the cascading snow. The Nebulus is already in service with first responders in both the US and Canada, helping them conduct rescues in hazardous environments more safely.
