Airbag jacket / vest

If there is an unintentional contact between a car and a motorcycle, this usually has more serious consequences for the motorcyclist. Whereas the car driver has a stable passenger compartment and numerous airbags to provide good protection, this is completely lacking on a two-wheeler. In the meantime, bikers can benefit from airbag systems that are integrated into vests or jackets. In the TecBike Online Shop you can get high-quality systems from: Helite

Motorcycle airbag vest - simply safer on the road

Until now, the helmet, the right clothing, boots and gloves were considered the only way to protect yourself from injuries in the event of an accident or to minimise them. Airbags are an excellent addition to the usual protective clothing for motorcyclists. In the event of a crash or a fall, a motorcycleairbag vest will protect youvery well and absorb the energy of the impact.

Airbag for motorcyclists - what protection does it offer?

In a collision with a car, for example, the body absorbs part of the impact energy. In addition, there are various safety systems, which include airbags. They provide additional protection for the car driver.

The situation is different for two-wheelers and their motorcycles. As a rule, only clothing and protectors provide injury protection. For some years now, various manufacturers have therefore been offering airbag vests or airbag backpacks.

Two different systems are usually used to trigger them:

  • Release via a rip cord
  • Release with the help of electronics

When you pull the rip cord on a motorcycle airbag vest, it inflates with air/pressure gas.

Airbag vests with electronic triggering are equipped with independent sensors. In the event of a collision, the vest inflates on its own within a few milliseconds, protecting the spine and torso.

Likemotorcycle protectors, these concepts arepurely rider-related. What does that mean? They are protective mechanisms located in therider's clothing.

What are the triggering techniques?

In practice, several methods have been established as to how airbags for two-wheelers are filled/inflated.

CO2 cartridges with pre-tensioning (ripcord)

To fill the chambers, there are solutions with CO2 cartridges. The gas provides the required volume of the airbag. In vests such as Helite's Airnest, they are released via a rip cord. It takes about 80 to 100 milliseconds for the airbag to fill completely.

The gas generator

Electronic systems with gas generators are the fastest and safest. Compared to ripcord systems, the gas generator manages to inflate the airbag in only a quarter of the time. This is about the same time as an airbag in a car.

Which areas are protected?

While conventional protectors are limited to shoulders, elbows, knees and hips, modern airbag systems such as those offered by Helite effectively protect the back, chest, neck and shoulders.

The neck and throat are very sensitive areas and require greater protection. Stiff neck braces are already known for this from the motocross segment.

Much more comfortable and safer with an air-filled airbag. The airbag forms a reliable crumple zone in the event of a crash. Although high-quality protectors for shoulders and back can be quite sufficient as protection, it increases even more with an airbag that you wear on your body.

Car airbag and airbag vests for motorcyclists: not to be compared

To inflate an airbag in a car, many designers use a chemical reaction. The situation is different with the airbag vest you wear on your motorcycle. The air bags are much smaller and are usually filled with pressurized gas. When the airbag is released for the first time, it has the greatest strength. After that, the gas escapes and the pressure in the chambers drops. If the vest has triggered, it can be made ready for use again. In some cases you can do this yourself, but in others this can only be done by the manufacturer.

How do you wear an airbag vest for a motorcycle?

This depends on the model. Some vests are worn under the jacket, while others must be worn over the motorcycle jacket. Both ways of wearing airbag vests make them universally applicable.

Newer models are very comfortable to wear: they are so light and thin that they only slightly restrict your mobility when riding. Please note: There are also airbag vests that can only be worn in combination with compatible motorcycle jackets.

What is important when choosing?

Vests are available in different materials, sizes and designs. It should fit well and not restrict your freedom of movement. It should also not wrinkle.

When choosing a size, think about whether you want to wear it over or under your jacket. If you choose a model with a zip line, please note that it must be attached to your bike in a suitable place.

Helite Motorcycle Airbag Vests

In the airbag scene, the French manufacturer Helite has become one of the all-round specialists. In addition to integrated solutions, the company also offers products that can be worn separately under or over the motorcycle jacket.

TheAirnest airbag vest is light and compact. It convinces with its universal applicability. You only need one Airbag Vest for the whole season, no matter if you are on the road or at home. Depending on the size, the protective volume is between 17 and 24 litres. The release of the vest is done by a rip cord. To prevent unintentional release, for example when descending, a force of 300 N (30 kg) is required. By simply replacing the CO2 pressure cylinder, your Airnest vest is immediately ready for use again. Be sure to check that the vest is in perfect condition before wearing it again.
