It might not look like much, but the Alpinestars Tech Air Suit is designed to take a lot of damage. Sure, you can’t battle aliens with it (or can you?), the Tech Air however, is designed to withstand really brutal impact. See, the target market for this leather suit are those crazy motorcycle daredevils like Ghost Rider as well as the racing breed. In the unfortunate event that they’re thrown from the bike, the suit can take an unholy beating and still guarantee the wearer survives with nary a scratch. But wait, there’s more!
See, the Tech Air Suit has the word ‘Air’ thrown in for a reason. A computer program synced to the suit can determine whether to deploy embedded airbags in the shoulder area in the even of an accident. This cutting edge feature means that the chances of the rider surviving are not only improved, but that the future of such apparel now has a benchmark to overcome. It would be great if Alpinestars outed a fully modular racing suit that can be ‘adjusted’ according to the race’s safety requirements.
