AIRBAG SYSTEMS FOR MOTORCYCLE RIDERS

Unrivalled modern safety technology

The best protection with maximum comfort

Airbag systems in cars are long since tried and tested. Presumably nowadays it wouldn't occur to anybody to purchase a new car without airbags. Nowadays not even motorcycle riders have to go without the extra safety that this technology provides.

The first (mechanical) systems were introduced to the market at around the turn of the millennium. Since then the technology has developed rapidly: The airbags have become quicker, more reliable and more versatile; the protective effect is hardly comparable with conventional protectors. Furthermore, depending on the model, modern airbag waistcoats can also protect a much larger area of the body than classic back protectors: Shoulders, tailbones, ribs, kidneys and the internal organs in the chest and upper abdomen.

Two systems are currently on the market (and available at Louis): mechanical and electronic airbag waistcoats. The mechanical activation is performed by a ripcord which is connected to the motorcycle and abruptly opens a CO2 cartridge. On the electronic version motion sensors issue the activation signal. The air chambers are filled by special argon cartridges, similar to in cars.

Alpinestars Tech-Air 3

Alpinestars’ lightest autonomous Airbag System, Tech-Air 3 is designed to be worn over or under the motorcycle jacket, as the effective and practical choice for touring riders, urban city commuters and light off-road adventure riders.

Alpinestars’ crash detection triggering algorithm has been developed and refined with millions of kilometers of riding data and thousands of crashes, allowing the System to accurately assess when to deploy the airbag ahead of an impact or other dangerous situation like a lowside or highside crash. In the event that Tech-Air 3 detects the start of a crash, the System will inflate the protective airbag in 50 milliseconds. In the event of a direct impact of the motorcycle with another vehicle or obstacle, the Tech-Air 3 System, is effective for the “first impact*,” which means that the System inflates before hitting the vehicle or obstacle against which the motorcycle will have the direct impact. The “first impact” test was performed in accordance with Dolomiticert Protocol where the airbag was tested within a speed range of 25 to 63 km/h. For more information on the envelope of protection, see the Tech-Air 3 User Manual.

Featuring a water resistant main chassis and a waterproof ECU and electronics, the slim, self-contained system can also be worn under a motorcycle jacket, including an Alpinestars’ Tech-Air Ready jacket, or any leather or textile jacket, providing that the jacket has sufficient space to accommodate the inflation of the airbag (approx. 4cm).Tech-Air 3 will allow riders to enjoy the daily commute even more, knowing they’re protected.

Easy activation via the Tech-Air APP!
