Alpinestars Tech-Air STREET Air Bag System
The Tech-Air Street air bag system from Alpinestars truly is an innovation in rider protection! Innovation doesn’t happen overnight and the Tech-Air system from Alpinestars is a result of over a decade of development in MotoGP. This latest version of Alpinestars Tech-Air™ technology is available in both ‘Race and Street’ options and brings full upper body protection to track and road riders alike.
The Tech-Air™ 'STREET' system is sold separately and is only compatible with certain jackets from Alpinestars product range and it cannot be worn with other brands or on its own!
The Tech-Air™ system is completely self-contained and ready to use straight out of the box - 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 shoulder areas.
The Tech-Air™ STREET airbag is securely integrated into a removable and interchangeable breathable mesh vest that is worn under a compatible Alpinestars jacket. This allows for greater protection to the airbag system and componentry, increasing its lifespan and allowing the system to be used interchangeably with compatible jackets. For Tech-Air™ STREET the compatible jacket model available initially is the Valparaiso For Tech-Air™ textile jacket. These compatible outer jackets have been specifically designed to work with the airbag system.
Please note: The 'STREET' option can 'only' be used for road riding due to the different softwear required between track and street use.
