The airbag is a protection element that increases the pilot’s safety without being cumbersome. It can be worn under the jacket, integrated into it or in the jumpsuit and takes 55 thousandths to fully unfold after detecting a potential impact hazard. Its composition is micro-perforated fabric, elastic, breathable and light, which allows the weight to range between 1 kg (vests) and 5 kg (jumpsuit).
MotoGP riders Joan Mir, Álex Rins, Maverick Viñales, Franco Morbidelli and Miguel Oliveira join the campaign #PonteUnAirbag from ANESDOR and RACE, in collaboration with the DGT Y Dorna. This initiative seeks to promote the use of a vest or an airbag jacket, which protect the torso, vital organs and the cervical area in the event of an accident.
In their message, the pilots of the main category of the Motorcycle World Championship tell us about the multiple benefits of the airbag for all motorcycle users. This video of the MotoGP riders can be found on the information microsite ( ponteunairbag.vivelamoto.org) along with examples and analysis performed by the RACE that ratify that, thanks to the motorcycle airbag, the consequences of a fall are significantly reduced. In addition, raffles for the vests will be held on the Vive la Moto social networks.
Road safety for motorists is a priority And it is key to make users aware that steps must be taken to reduce accidents.
