When it comes to riding safety, advanced gear and protection get improved year after year. Designers and engineers at Alpinestars did an amazing job creating a new system that can make motorcycle riding 95% safer. Introducing the Tech-Air 5 airbag vest system designed to protect the rider’s collarbones, shoulders, ribs, back, and chest. No tether is required. The electronic system constantly analyzes the situation and can deploy the airbag in less than 40 ms.
An electronic module incorporated into a back protector uses real-time information from 3 accelerometers and 3 gyroscopes detecting sudden speed changes, which means the system can protect the rider not only in case of a high-speed crash but also when stationary in case of a rear-end collision. A rechargeable Li-ion battery provides 30 hours of riding. To activate the system, all you need to do is zip up the vest and close the magnetic flap.
