Looking for riding gear that doesn’t weigh much yet is extremely effective in protecting you from injury in the event of a crash. You can’t do better than an airbag jacket or vest. These pieces of safety gear incorporate an airbag cushion system that is activated with the help of the coiled wire lanyard or cable. The lanyard/cable attaches to both the motorcycle and the vest or jacket. In case the rider falls off the bike, the wire activates the deployment system, and the gas cartridge integrated into the vest or jacket instantly inflates air cushions. The airbag system is reusable and can be reset in minutes. Airbag jackets/vests feature a replaceable gas cartridge, which means you can repack them and use with a new cartridge.

Airbag jackets and vests for motorcycles appeared quite a while ago. The first motorcycle airbag jacket was invented in Hungary in 1976, while the first inflating airbag was developed in Japan in 1996 and launched in 1998. Since that time, this protective garment has become more advanced in terms of technology. Today, you can find airbag vests and jackets that can function completely independently, so you will neither need to link the airbag cushion system to your bike nor install additional sensors on it. Self-contained vests and jackets give you the freedom to ride on any motorcycle at any time you want, while still offering maximum safety and reliability.

The jackets and vests feature cutting-edge built-in sensors that automatically sense when the motorist separates from the bike. Once the accident is detected, the airbag system will deploy in no time at all to cushion your vital organs. Sensors are usually activated multiple times per second to efficiently monitor the rider and provide the main control module with precise data. This helps prevent accidental deployments and ensures the airbag won’t fail to deploy when the crash happens. Self-contained vests are worn in conjunction with a compatible jacket. Often you can choose from several jackets to enjoy ultimate comfort in all-weather conditions.

On our website, we’ve gathered a diverse selection of motorcycle airbag vests and jackets. They come with various features and differ in materials, designs, sizes, and time when they inflate. Inflation time usually ranges from less than 0.1 seconds to half a second. Undoubtedly, when the time is faster, the protection is expected to be better. Can’t choose between a vest and jacket? Airbag vests are a lighter and more budget-friendly option, worn over your existing gear. They are the way to go if you ride in hot weather and don’t want a warmer jacket to make your ride unbearable. Vests feature a strap system, that can be easily adjusted for a proper fit.

However, if you want to get ultimate protection during your adventures, airbag jackets are the best bet. They will not only guard your back, neck, and chest against serious injury but will also keep you warm and protected in unfavorable weather. Made either from high-grade, leather or highly durable yet breathable synthetic materials, they offer superior comfort and abrasion resistance. Many jackets are waterproof, so you can enjoy peace of mind that you won’t get wet in rainy or snowy weather. Designed around your safety, most airbag jackets also feature plastic pads that cover shoulders, elbows, and other exposed body parts.
