Alpinestars tells us how the Tech-Air airbag and the motorcycle jackets prepared for their safety system are made.
THE AIRBAG TECHNOLOGY TECH-AIR®
Developed in more than 15 years of intense research and development on airbag technology, born in MotoGP and continued with over half a million kilometers traveled by road, the Tech-Air ™ system is the first and only independent airbag system dedicated to full body coverage specifically designed to offer protection to the rider from the first impact in the event of an accident.
Tech-Air ™ uses a sophisticated algorithm to offer basic first impact protection, ie the primary contact between the rider and the obstacle or vehicle. The system offers unrivaled freedom and versatility. No connections between motorcycle and pilot, the systems are completely independent, which means that the rider can have full chest airbag protection on any motorcycle, regardless of make or model.
The system Tech-Air ™ Street can be used on road and touring off-road, while the Tech-Air ™ Race can be used for driving on the track but, through a firmware change, can operate using the Street parameters for maximum versatility.
The vest, purchased separately, installs easily and requires no external sensor to use. If it detects an accident, it will deploy a protective airbag, providing unmatched protection for the rider's full back, shoulders, kidney area and chest.
