Alpinestars is launching the new Tech-Air 3, their packable autonomous Airbag System for over or under motorcycle jacket use. It’s designed as effective and practical protection choice for touring riders, urban city commuters, and light off-road adventure riders. It marks the latest addition to the Alpinestars’ Tech-Air family. The line also includes the Tech-Air 10, and Tech-Air 5 Airbag Systems. Tech-Air 3 enables riders of all disciplines to benefit from a standalone, wearable garment. One featuring all the protection that Tech-Air delivers, regardless of the bike or riding style.

Engineered to be worn in all weather conditions, the Tech-Air 3 Airbag System’s lightweight construction and packable design allow it to be quickly and easily folded up and stowed in a backpack or under a scooter’s seat when not in use. The Tech-Air 3 Airbag System is now available in both a men’s version as well as a women’s Stella version, with an ergonomically designed fit, tailored to the female rider. 

AI Technology and Crash Monitoring Performance

Alpinestars’ crash detection triggering algorithm has been developed and refined with millions of kilometers of riding data and thousands of crashes, allowing the System to accurately assess when to deploy the airbag ahead of an impact or other dangerous situation like a lowside, or highside crash. In the event that Tech-Air 3 detects the start of a crash, the System will inflate the protective airbag in 50 milliseconds. The state-of-the-art, wearable Tech-Air System’s crash detection algorithm leverages AI to accurately monitor when to deploy the airbag in the event of a crash. Tech-Air 3 incorporates 6 integrated sensors (3 accelerometers (1 triaxial accelerometer), and 3 gyroscopes (1 triaxial gyroscope)) to provide the best crash monitoring performance and active airbag protection in a variety of dynamic street riding scenarios, and even when stopped at a traffic light, for instance.

In the event of a direct impact of the motorcycle with an object, the Tech-Air 3 System, is effective for the first impact. The system inflates prior to hitting the vehicle or obstacle. The upper body protection keeps motorcycle riders safer by uniquely covering the rider’s full chest and full back. In addition, the integrated back protector pocket on the back can accommodate additional passive back protection, if desired.

System Operational Status

An LED display on the front chest indicates the Airbag System’s operational status. It also incorporates a haptic alert, which vibrates to confirm the system is armed. The system also alerts the rider when the battery is running low. Bluetooth connectivity to a Tech-Air App allows monitoring of both the system’s operational status and battery status. It also maps your journey via MyRide.

The Tech-Air 3 is ideal for commuting in the city and adventuring on the road. Every rider can now “Enjoy the ride more,” when riding protected with the Airbag System. The slim-fitting Tech-Air 3 vest gives motorcyclists a sense of freedom. They also get the added confidence that comes with riding the bike and wearing a protective airbag.
