Alpinestars, an Italian manufacturer of premium-quality riding gear, protection, and accessories recently introduced its latest version of an advanced universal airbag vest called the Tech-Air 5. It is a wearable self-contained safety system that you can put under any riding jacket as long as there is room for it and you feel comfortable. No tether is needed. It is an electronic system with 6 tree-axle sensors (3 gyroscopes and 3 accelerometers).
The system is designed to detect a dangerous situation, whether it’s a crash at high speed or rear-end collision when stationary, and deploy an airbag in less than 40 ms to cover the rider’s shoulders, ribs, back, and chest for 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 you’re good to go.
