[] - Alpinestars Introduces The Tech-Air Street Airbag System + Video

Following on the success of its Tech-Air racing leathers, Alpinestars has released the next generation of the airbag technology. Called the Tech-Air Street, Alpinestars had always intended for the safety technologies it developed on the racetrack to transfer over to street riders.

The Tech-Air Street airbag system is a completely self-contained system, not needing any sort of tether to the motorcycle. Currently, the Tech-Air Street is available in the Valparaiso and Viper jackets, with the electronic brains of the system housed completely within the back protectors of each jacket. Unlike the racing version of the Tech-Air system, which mainly covers the shoulders and clavicles, the street version protects a larger swath of the body, covering the back, shoulders, kidneys and chest.

Because the Tech-Air Street is not motorcycle dependent, the system can be used on virtually any kind of street motorcycle, even adventure bikes and the light off-roading they are designed for.

Check out the video below for a visual explanation of the system, and check out the Alpinestars website for more information. The Tech-Air Street is set to be available in Europe starting in Spring 2015. U.S. availability and pricing is yet to be determined as of press time.
