One of the most renowned and respected Italian manufacturers of riding gear and protection, Alpinestars just recently introduced their latest iteration of the advanced airbag system called Tech-Air 5. The system uses an electronic module with 3 accelerometers and 3 gyroscopes to detect sudden changes in the rider’s speed and position to deploy an airbag in less than 40 ms. The airbag is designed to cover the shoulders, back, chest, and ribs.

No need to attach yourself to the bike through the tether. You activate the system by zipping up the vest and closing the magnetic flap and monitor the system status via LED indicators. The rechargeable Li-Ion battery provides 30 hours of riding time. Even when you get rear-ended at the red light, the vest will protect you and offer up to 95% reduction of impact force compared to passive protection.
