As much as we’d like to think we’re invincible, unfortunately accidents do happen. And if you’re an avid motorcycle rider the odds are even higher and increasingly more damaging if something does go awry. Alpinestars is here to fix, or at least mitigate, any damages to your most important equipment in the case of such an accident…your body.

Introducing the Tech Air, a ground-breaking street airbag system that offers comprehensive upper body protection while riding a motorcycle. It’s designed to protect the rider’s shoulders, chest, kidneys and back with its inflation technology. And the Tech Air is quick as well, able to detect the impact, activate and inflate in less than a tenth of a second. An LED panel of the sleeve indicates the battery level and on a full charge, Alpinestars suggests you can get up to 25 continuous hours of protection. That’s one long road trip. Just be sure to pair it with one of their jackets to ensure the Tech Air actually works when needed. Available for $1,000. [H/T: Maxim]
