Alpinestars Revolutionary Tech-Air Airbag System

Alpinestars Revolutionary Tech-Air Airbag System

Alpinestars Tech-Air Airbag System
The Tech-Air Airbag System is a state-of-the-art, tether-free airbag protection system designed to be used with Alpinestars Tech-Air Race prepared riding and racing gear. The onboard computer system uses Alpinestars' proprietary algorithms to process the information gathered by the vest’s accelerometers and gyroscope. Should the system sense a crash, it can trigger and fully inflate the airbag in 25 milliseconds for street gear and 45 milliseconds for racing gear, providing comprehensive protection to the rider's full back, shoulders, kidney area and chest. The Tech-Air is ready to go right out of the box—no need to install sensors on the bike or go through a complicated pairing process. Simply install the vest in a compatible jacket or race suit and go ride.

Alpinestars Tech-Air For Racing
The Tech-Air Race comes preloaded with Alpinestars racing algorithms—the same algorithms used in MotoGP and WSBK—which are designed to detect the crashes typical of closed course competition. In this configuration, the system only uses one of its two charges at a time, saving the remaining charge for a second deployment. The vest is immediately ready to deploy its second charge, so if you and your bike are able to continue the race, you won’t have to do it unprotected. If remounting a crashed bike to chase a precious few championship points isn't exactly your style, the vest can be set to deploy both charges simultaneously for a quicker inflation. 

Alpinestars Tech Air For Street Riding 
The Tech-Air Street Vest adds cutting-edge, race-proven airbag technology to Alpinestars Tech-Air street prepared riding jackets. The vest's ever-vigilant ACU is able to detect that things are going awry within 30-60 milliseconds, even when hit from behind at a stop light. It then triggers the dual argon inflator charges, fully inflating the system's airbag in 25 milliseconds. After deployment, the Tech-Air compatible jacket can still be worn for the rest of the ride, taking advantage of the built in CE level 2 back protector. Then the Tech-Air Street Airbag Vest system can be easily removed from the jacket and sent to Alpinestars for repair. In the Tech Air Street Vest, you are always protected. Whether you are carving canyons, putting in long miles on the interstates on a Goldwing, railing down a fire road on a GS or commuting to work on your trusty scooter, the Tech-Air has your back.
