Alpinestars is out with its first pair of street-focused airbag-equipped jackets, and they have me seriously considering hanging up by beaten and battered leathers and taking the leap.
The Tech-Air system has been used in MotoGP since 2009, and both Dainese and Alpinestars have offered full race suits with airbags for street riders for a few years. But those neck-to-ankles suits aren't exactly convenient for a run across town. That's where this new pair of street and off-road focused jackets come into play.
The video covers all the details, and there's more information in our previous post. The only thing missing is pricing, but if there's anything I've learned, extra peace of mind is always worth the additional scratch.
