Alpinestars Tech Air Race Vest
The result of over a decade of development in MotoGP and following on from Alpinestars’ first-generation racing airbag system and the launch of the ground-breaking Tech Air Street, this latest version of Alpinestars Tech Air technology brings full upper body protection to serious track day and performance riders. The Tech Air Race is completely self-contained, meaning there are no bike-to-rider set-up configurations required, which ensures the ultimate in convenience, freedom and versatility. When fully inflated, the system’s airbag offers critical protection to the back, kidneys, chest and shoulders. Plus, with a simple upgrade the versatile system firmware, the Race system can be configured to run the Tech Air Street setting for non-race use in road and off-road situations. 

With over 700 MotoGP crashes, there has not been a single false deployment ensuring there won't be any surprises while out on the track. The Tech Air vest was engineered to be proactive and deploy before coming into contact with any object or surface. In the event of air bag deployment, the rider will still retain up to 90% of their original mobility allowing them to move out of harms way, or to pick up their bike and continue on.
