Airbag vests for the motorbike are becoming more popular every day. Also because it is becoming more and more affordable. Motor airbags can be divided into two groups, namely those that function completely stand alone and a type that is connected with a motor mounting cord.
In our shop we offer stand alone air bag vests and the integrated airbag vests as we know them from Dainese. For the simple reason that these 2 types are much safer. Air bag vests based on a cord or GPS are less reliable and do not function in a number of essential situations. With GPS you can loose your GPS connection and you are therefore unprotected. And with a cord you are not protected when a car is hitting you from behind. In addition, you are limited to only your motorbike. Do you have to drive on another motorbike in case of trouble for example, or do you like to drive someone else's motor, you do not have an airbag system that protects you anymore.
The Alpinestars Tech-Air airbag vest is suitable for motorcycle jackets and motorcycle suits from the Tech-Air collection of Alpinestars. The Tech-Air system works completely stand alone. There is no connection to the motor or GPS. The sensors are all incorporated in the air bag. This ensures comfort while wearing and driving and provides protection in all kinds of accidents.
At Dainese you buy a D-air product. This means that the airbag is integrated in the jacket or in the motorcycle suit. It is not a separate jacket and airbag vest as is the case at Alpinestars. With Dainese, the airbag can not be removed or transferred to another motorcycle jacket or motorcycle suit.
