Airbag technology for motorcyclists has made leaps and bounds over the last few years. No longer the preserve of professional racers, if you’re happy to spend some serious cash, you could get your hands on some of the most revolutionary life-saving kit to hit the market.
The Dainese Cyclone D-Air jacket is a clever piece of kit, which combines a standalone airbag system with the Dainese’s own D-Cyclone breathable and waterproof Gore-Tex jacket.
It’s a top quality jacket, made from laminated Gore-Tex fabric with cowhide leather inserts – and meets CE-level 2 classifications, thanks to armour on the shoulders and elbows, in addition to its innovative D-Air system. For comfort, it comes with numerous adjustment options, on the waist, neck, and wrist. Plus, there’s an anti-floating sleeve adjuster, and a fastening system to allow you to connect the jacket to your trousers.
Delving deeper, its D-Air system is essentially a piece of protective technology primarily aimed at motorcyclists which employs an intelligent sensor system to detect dangerous situations and inflate a built-in airbag in your bike gear. Clever right?
Focusing in on the D-Air technology, there’s two main elements that combine to keep you safe in the event of a crash – its heart and its brain.
The 3D Airbag is the heart of the D-air System. Ergonomically designed for maximum comfort, it features a microfilament construction that ensures uniform inflation for maximum protection.
The D-Air control unit monitors the sensor signals 1,000 times a second using a sophisticated patented triggering algorithm to decide whether or not to inflate the airbag.
