TECH-AIR™

A Tech-Air™ az első, teljesen önálló, semmi mással nem összekötött légzsák-rendszer, amely csak a saját érzékelőit használja a baleset felismerésére, és a légzsák működésbe hozására. A légzsák a működéshez nem igényel semmiféle kiegészítést a motorkerékpárra, tehát, olyan szabadságot ad viselőjének, mint semmi más, hasonló termék a piacon.

A másodperc tört része alatt működésbe lépő Tech Air™ légzsák átfogó védelmet nyújt viselőjének azáltal, hogy balesetnél megvédi a teljes hát-, váll-, vese- és mellkasrészt.

A Tech-Air™ rendszert egy speciális mellénybe építették (légzsákok, elektronika és érzékelők). A mellény maga vízálló, nincs véglegesen rögzítve egyetlen motoros ruhába sem, viszont az arra speciálisan előkészített Alpinestars bőrruhákkal, bőr- és textilkabátokkal együtt hordható, azokhoz csatlakoztatható. Ezek a „Tech-Air előkészített” kabátok, bőrruhák légzsák nélkül is viselhetők!

Independent

By incorporating its sensors close to the rider’s body Alpinestars Tech-Air™ activates without the need for a triggering wireless signal to be sent from the bike.

All-Weather Riding

The electronic unit is protected by a durable and water-resistant casing which, when worn under a compatible outer jacket, means the airbag system is fully weatherproof.

No Installation

Tech-Air™ has no installation-to-bike requirements and subsequent cost and time-delay issue, eliminating the need for the bike to be specially fitted with sensors. With no equipment to be installed on the bike, the Tech-Air™ System is compatible with ANY motorcycle or scooter, regardless of make, age or type.

UNSURPASSED R&D AND PERFORMANCE

Following a decade of intensive research, development, hundreds of thousands of miles of road testing, a multitude of computer simulations and full scale crash tests, the Tech-Air™ street airbag system typically detects an impact between 30-60 milliseconds (depending on accident type). Once fired Tech-Air™ will fully inflate in 25 milliseconds.

The Tech-Air™ street airbag system uses a sophisticated algorithm specifically developed for street riding to detect imminent danger with the greatest precision. Using Alpinestars’ exclusive custom analysis software the algorithm of Tech-Air™ has been optimized to detect crash impacts not only while riding but also in situations of loss of control, including when riding off road. This has been possible because Tech-Air™ also utilizes the experience in the algorithm from the Tech-Air™ race airbag system that features accident prediction and detects low-side crashes as well as high-sides for top MotoGP riders such as Marc Marquez, Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa.

Additionally, Tech-Air™ provides protection when the rider is stationary, for example, a rear impact while waiting at traffic lights.

INNOVATIVE CONSTRUCTION

The Tech-Air™ street airbag is securely integrated into a removable and interchangeable breathable mesh vest that is worn under a compatible outer jacket. This allows for greater protection to the airbag system and componentry, increasing its lifespan and allowing the system to be used interchangeably with the compatible jacket of choice for the motorcycle type and weather outlook. For Tech-Air™ two compatible jacket models are available initially, the Valparaiso For Tech-Air™ and the Viper For Tech-Air™ textile jackets. The compatible outer jacket, which is designed to work with the airbag system, incorporates CE certified shoulder and elbow protection to further ramp its overall protective qualities. This outer jacket can be used as a stand-alone, without the Tech-Air™ System fitted internally.

peace-of-mind CONVENIENCE

The Tech-Air™ System is powered by a battery pack which offers over 25 hours of continuous use with one hour’s charging ensuring four hours of riding time. The system is activated simply by zipping up the jacket and riders can ensure the system is activated by checking the LED display located on the left sleeve. This feature is highly convenient, meaning riders can easily arm the airbag system without the need to locate a switch and can do so wearing gloves.

The system is CE certified to the PPE directive (EN1621-4 for impact protection) as well as the pyrotechnic articles directive, to assure the safety and stability of the incorporated inflators. This also means that the airbag system can be safely and legally transported by car, ship, train and airplane, allowing riders the freedom to use their Tech-Air™ with rental bikes on their dream adventure touring holiday.

Tech-Air™ is the only airbag protection system conceived for the free spirit of motorcycling. No matter what bike you are riding and no matter the road surface and riding environment you experience – Alpinestars’ Tech-Air™ is always there to protect.

Critical Protection Coverage

The Tech-Air™ street airbag system offers comprehensive upper body protection including back, shoulders, kidney area and chest, all of the most exposed areas during a street crash.
