In recent years, Alpinestars has made a strong push in road racing markets with their Tech-Air protective equipment. Essentially, it is an airbag with electronic sensors and an algorithm that can quickly detect a sudden change in a rider’s body behavior and will quickly inflate to protect against the impact. Currently, the Tech-Air system is used throughout MotoGP and Dakar’s off-road endurance event, but Alpinestars has worked alongside their MXGP riders to develop the system for the rigors of motocross racing. With the new technology, it looks like the brand should have it refined for MX in the very near future.
