One of the most advanced and safest airbag systems was recently introduced to the market by Alpinestars, an Italian manufacturer of premium-quality riding gear, protection, and accessories. The latest version of this universal airbag vest is called the Tech-Air 5. It is a wearable self-contained safety system that you can put under any jacket. No tether is needed. The system detects dangerous situations using an electronic module packed with 6 tree-axle sensors (3 gyroscopes and 3 accelerometers).
Whether it’s a crash at high speed or rear-end collision at the red light, the system deploys the airbag in less than 40 ms to cover the rider’s shoulders, ribs, back, and chest. It offers a 95% decrease of the impact force when compared to passive protection. Just zip up the vest and close the magnetic flap to activate the system, and monitor its status using LED indicators at the front panel.
