PTW road user clothing airbags status.
State whether the PTW road user had apparel equipped with airbags.
A range of motorcycle jackets incorporate a personal airbag system.
Most of them fitted with a ripcord which clips directly to the motorcycle, should there be an ejection from the bike a small CO2 cartridge is triggered inflating the jacket as quickly as 0.2 of a second.
The motorcyclist is therefore provided with an airbag cushion protecting the torso before impact with another vehicle or the road surface.
Areas such as the front of the chest, the side ribs and the back are protected, as well increased support for the neck and spine areas.
