An Airbag for Motorcycles

D air

The Italian company Dainese has created a airbag system for motorcycles called D-air Street.

Springwise has more:

Having already developed a working airbag sewn into clothing for motorcycle racing professionals, Dainese has now produced a version suitable for street riders. The protective gear comes in two parts – the J-Kit, which is the clothing unit, and the M-Kit, which is the bike unit. The J-Kit features a pneumatic gas system fitted into the rider’s clothing, which generates the air needed to fill the 12-liter airbags positioned at key points in the armour. An electronic radio system sends data between the bike and the riding gear to release the airbags upon detection of an event.

The company claims that the D-air reduces the force of an impact by 92%.
