PICTURES: Dainese's airbag in action.

Monday, 5th November 2007

Dainese's revolutionary new airbag passed its motorcycle grand prix test at Valencia, when 250cc rider Marco Simoncelli fell from his Gilera - triggering the system (pictured).

The airbag, contained within a 'collar' around the top of the rider's leathers, supports and protects the neck and collarbone area during an accident, and can be easily removed afterwards.

The most difficult part is making sure the airbag is deployed only when it is needed, but the Dainese system performance faultlessly during the Valencia weekend and may eventually be available to road riders.

:cool

I wonder how well it slides if you get over on your back? Almost looks like it might get sucked under you and cause some tumbling. Just an observation, I am sure that its probably been tested to beat all hell.

The main purpose of the airbag is to make you bounce like a ball... :lmao
