Introducing the innovative airbag system by Alpinestars called the Tech-Air 5. This airbag vest is universal and does not require a tether. It uses active electronic system that includes 3 gyroscopes and 3 accelerometers and has Bluetooth connectivity to deploy the bag at the right time no matter whether you are riding or getting rammed while standing. The system is designed for street riding applications. You can wear it underneath any jacket as long as you have room for it there. The deployed airbag offers full coverage around the neck, shoulders, ribs, chest, and full back effectively minimizing the risk of shoulder and collarbone injuries in case of a crash.

Alpinestars is one of those brands that needs no introduction. This Italian manufacturer offers a wide range of high-quality riding gear, protection, footwear, apparel, and other motorcycle accessories with street and racing applications. Italian leather craftsman and big motorcycle enthusiast Sante Mazzarolo opened his business in 1963 which grew into a hugely successful international company. Today, Alpinestars gear is the number one choice for many Formula One, MotoGP, Motocross, and NASCAR champions.
