Check out this recently released Tech-Air 5 universal airbag system by Alpinestars. The Italy-based company has put countless hours of research, development, and testing to create this advanced airbag vest that can be worn under any jacket. No need for a tether, the system includes an electronic module with 3 accelerometers, 3 gyroscopes, and Bluetooth connectivity. It is designed to constantly analyze the rider’s position and deploy an airbag at the right moment and in the right way in mere milliseconds.

The vest works even when the rider is stationary and gets rear-ended. It is very effective in protecting the whole upper body from injuries. The airbag system covers the shoulders, neck, ribs, chest, and whole back. When compared to the passive chest and back protection, the Tech-Air 5 is up to 95% more effective in minimizing the risk of sustaining severe injuries in an extreme situation.
