Airbags have been mandatory in cars since time immemorial. They are also emerging in greater numbers for motorcyclists. From fully stand-alone systems packed with technologies, to the simpler vests that you attach to your motorcycle with a cord.
Airbag vests are gaining popularity among motorcyclists and are the ultimate safety upgrade of your motorcycle outfit. Despite that, there is still a lot to be done. Although cars no longer roll off the production line without an airbag, the motorcycle airbag is still far from commonplace. These motorcycle airbags can be divided into two groups that work standalone and the variant that is triggered by a fastening cord on the motorcycle.
Protection type of motorcycle airbags
The motorcycle airbag system has been developed to protect the entire upper body against obstacles during an accident. In milliseconds, the system fills with air, reducing impact on shoulders, back, chest and hips and preventing possible fractures. Many airbags are also equipped with a CE back protector for additional protection.

Buy universal motorcycle airbag vest
The universal airbag vest can be worn over your own motorcycle jacket and therefore suitable for any type of jacket. This is usually triggered by a cord that is attached to the motor and goes off in the event of a crash. The universal motorcycle airbags from Bering, for example, have a lower purchase price.
Alpinestars Tech-Air standalone airbag system
The Alpinestars Tech-Air airbag vest is suitable for compatible Alpinestars motorcycle jackets and is worn in the motorcycle jacket itself. It works together with the protectors that are present in the motorcycle jacket. Unlike the universal airbags, the Tech-Air system works completely on its own. There is no connection to the engine and the sensors are all incorporated in the airbag vest. This provides a higher level of comfort and protection in all types of accidents.
