Abbotsford – One of the many highlights of the 2018 Vancouver Motorcycle Show at the Abbotsford Tradex is the Tech-Air airbag system for motorcycles. In a nutshell, an inflatable system the biker wears so when the unthinkable happens, the rider has a body airbag that inflates and protects him/her from initial body damage.

The first design for this technology was in 2001 and professional use started on the track in 2009. In 2018, the suits are now made available for the average rider.

Here is the preamble from the reps at the show, describing how the system works:
