Specifically developed for road racing, track day use and performance road riding, the FIM-homologated, Tech-Air® 7x System is derived from Alpinestars’ proven MotoGP Airbag technology. The fully autonomous, self-contained motorcycling Airbag System is engineered for racing, offering riders streamlined, low profile, and highly ventilated Tech-Air® protection. Developed for performance/recreational motorcycling, the Tech-Air® 7x provides riders with comprehensive upper body protection by covering their shoulders, chest, and full back. The integrated back protector is extended in length for additional protection of the coccyx. The Tech-Air® 7x System can be used as a Standalone System or as an Integrated System within a compatible suit or jacket. The System is designed to function for racing on closed-circuit tracks, as well as for road riding, and light off-road riding.

The state-of-the-art, wearable Tech-Air® 7x System comes with an active electronic system that features twelve integrated sensors: 3 triaxial accelerometers (1 positioned on the back protector and 2 positioned on the shoulders) and 1 triaxial gyroscope (located within the back protector). These sensors monitor the rider’s body for shocks or unexpected movements. Developed through years of research in collaboration with over 50% of the world’s leading MotoGP riders and Alpinestars’ customers riding with Tech-Air® Systems, our team has analyzed riding data from millions of kilometers and thousands of crashes to continuously enhance the System’s intelligent crash detection algorithms. Upon the identification of a crash situation, which happens when the rider’s body is subjected to a high and/or sudden amount of energy, the algorithm will trigger the deployment of the protective Airbag, providing unrivaled protection to the rider or the passenger wearing the System (with a maximum inflation time of 44ms, depending on the volume of the Airbag size). The impact absorption while wearing the Airbag when inflated, results in a decrease of the impact force by up to 90% compared to a passive CE Level 1 protector.

TECH-AIR® 7X RIDING MODES: RACE AND STREET
The Tech-Air® 7x System comes pre-loaded with two different Riding Modes: RACE Mode for riding on closed-circuit racetracks and STREET Mode for street and light off-road riding. Users can easily switch between Race and Street Riding Modes by simply using the Tech-Air® App. The System must always be used in Street Mode when driving on public roads and NOT on a closed-circuit racetrack. Riders should always remember to switch from Race Mode to Street Mode when they’ve finished at the circuit and leave the track, to ensure that they have full protection, even when stopped at traffic lights, intersections, or for any reason. Airbag protection when stopped is only provided by the Street Mode algorithm.
