Riding a motorcycle is a fun but very dangerous way of getting around, so safety should always be a priority. That is why the manufacturers of gear and accessories are always working to find a way to riding safer. Take a look at this innovative airbag system by Alpinestars called the Tech-Air 5. It comes in a form of a vest that you can wear under any jacket that fits.
You wouldn’t have to attach a tether to make it work. It is totally autonomous and controlled by an electronic module. All you need to do to activate the system is zip up the vest and close the magnetic flap. The system uses information coming from 3 accelerometers and 3 gyroscopes that can detect dangerous situations when an airbag is needed.
