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.

Important: Given the complexity of the Alpinestars Tech-Air Street-e/Race-e systems, you will require intensive consultation with our specialist staff who have been trained by the manufacturer. You can find out which store offer this service on the respective product details page.
