Since their inception in 1963, Alpinestars has been innovating and setting the bar for motorcycle protection. The new completely autonomous Tech-Air 5 street airbag vest with bluetooth connectivity is no different.
Alpinestars’ latest addition is a fully self contained airbag vest system that can be worn under any motorcycle jacket with 4cm of space around the circumference of the rider’s chest. And thirty hours of ride time on a single charge will outlast even the most dedicated riders. A-stars claims a decreased impact of up to 95% or equivalent to wearing 18 back protectors.
The tech packed into this vest at an inexpensive price point when compared to sub par competition is astonishing. Bluetooth connectivity allows the rider to access ride analysis data by plotting your route on a map and is firmware updatable. The system constantly improves itself as data from other deployments is collected and used to improve Alpinestars safety algorithms.With 3 accelerometers and 3 gyroscopes and a crash algorithm that leverages AI, the Tech-Air 5 is the most advanced street motorcycle airbag system around.
The last feature that is the most important and convenient in my book as well as understated, this system is TETHERLESS. No tethers, no wires, no cables, no bs to pull your bike over or accidentally set the unit off in front of your “friends” waiting to laugh at your misfortune. The Tech-Air 5 vest was built for the rider by one of the best names in the industry. We’re expecting to have this vest in stock mid July 2020. We are accepting pre-orders too.
