Alpinestars has been developing its airbag technology for more than 20 years, and hundreds of riders in MotoGP and other regional series use Alpinestars kit to help ensure they’re able to walk away from a crash on track. Avaliable for purchase now, the Tech-Air 10 will provide the most comprehensive airbag coverage on the market, with full upper-body and hip protection. It is designed to work as a stand-alone unit, so can be worn by riders with just about any type of exterior gear, as long as it provides enough clearance for the airbags to successfully deploy.

The Tech-Air 10 comes with 12 sensors and a crash detection algorithm that can be set to either Race or Street modes. The unit, when it senses a crash, will deploy airbags with an average speed of 40 milliseconds. Smaller sized riders will experience faster airbag deployment.

According to Alpinestars, the system decreases impact force by up to 95 percent compared to more traditional protection. It’s also CE-2 certified for back and chest protection.

The unit has a remote, wireless LED display to indicate operational status and the integrated lithium-ion battery provides up to 24 hours of ride time. You’ll be able to connect to the Tech-Air 10 via Bluetooth to keep tabs on operational status, battery life, and MyRide trip information. The Tech-Air app will allow you to keep your Tech-Air 10 up to date with the latest algorithm updates and each system is certified for up to three inflations.

This game-changing piece of kit may be pricey, but the benefits provided make it clear that it’s money well spent.
