Product information

Alpinestars Tech-Air Race Airbag System. Airbag system developed in competition which operates independently of the bike, because the sensors are located on the airbag itself. This system is only compatible with the Alpinestars jackets or suits prepared for it.

The Tech-Air Race comes configured with algorithms that are used in MotoGP or WSBK to detect the typical impact on circuit. In this configuration, the system uses only one of their two charges, saving the remaining charge for a possible second impact. Therefore, if the rider and the motorcycle can continue in the race, they will not have to do so without protection.

If the system detects an impact, the airbag is completely inflated in 45 milliseconds, providing full protection to the back area, shoulders, kidney area and chest.

Another advantage of the airbag Tech-Air Race is that you can also use in Street mode. The Street Tech-Air setting detects when the rider collides, and inflates in just 25 milliseconds.

Main features:

  • Only compatible with prepared Alpinestars jackets and suits. Cannot be used separately.
  • Back protection developed in MotoGP with inflatable protection for upper body, back of the shoulders, lower back, upper abdomen and chest area.
