Alpinestars Tech Air Street Vest Resources
Alpinestars Tech Air Street Airbag Vest
The same technology that has been protecting the best MotoGP and WSBK riders for years is now available to the common man. The Alpinestars Tech Air Street Airbag Vest is a standalone system, meaning there are no external sensors or tethers. Simply install the vest in a compatible Tech Air Street jacket and enjoy professional level protection.
The system's ACU (Airbag Control Unit) uses information gathered from three accelerometers and one gyroscope, in conjunction with advanced algorithms to detect a crash scenario. Once the system has detected a crash, it deploys the airbag, providing protection to the riders back, chest, kidney area and upper abdomen.
The Tech Air system requires registration with Alpinestars. Due to the technical nature of the Tech Air System, special care and maintenance is required. Once the airbag has been deployed, the vest must be sent to Alpinestars for maintenance, repacking and cleaning. Please note that if the suit has been serviced or either of the airbags have been deployed, the vest is no longer returnable. Please read the User Manual in detail, and let Cycle Gear know if you have any additional questions.
