Company Creates ‘Airbag Jeans’ That Inflate Before Impact to Protect Motorcyclist During Accidents
The garment is made from the strongest denim on the planet. Even more unique are the airbags that activate via small CO2 cartridges whenever the rider falls from their bike.
The trigger mechanism is a tether connecting the jeans to the motorcycle. When the equivalent of a road accident occurs, the tether creates a puncture in the cartridges that inflates the airbags.
