Dainese "airbag" suit

found on another forum

PICTURES: Dainese's airbag in action.

Monday, 5th November 2007

Dainese's revolutionary new airbag passed its motorcycle grand prix test at Valencia, when 250cc rider Marco Simoncelli fell from his Gilera - triggering the system (pictured).

The airbag, contained within a 'collar' around the top of the rider's leathers, supports and protects the neck and collarbone area during an accident, and can be easily removed afterwards.

The most difficult part is making sure the airbag is deployed only when it is needed, but the Dainese system performance faultlessly during the Valencia weekend and may eventually be available to road riders.

There was a video of it on the Myspace Featured videos that I watched today(Should've seen the smack talk).

Which I'm sure it helps but I'd want the airbag to deploy around my abdomen or chest area protecting my vital organs. Because I can live with a broken clavical. Can't live with broken lungs and sure as hell don't want to live with broken ribs.

that would suck if it was a minor slider. it would delay track re-entry after a quick inspection.

see how fast someone can change out of a one piece. I wonder if the airbag is separate- like they can unzip, deflate, and pop a new one in the rider's suit.
