Mo’cycle airbag jeans – SWNS

Motorcyclists can soon be safer thanks to a company that produced the world’s first airbag suit.

The garment is made from the strongest denim on the planet. Even more unique are the airbags that activate via small CO2 cartridges whenever the rider falls from their bike.

The trigger mechanism is a tether connecting the jeans to the motorcycle. When the equivalent of a road accident occurs, the tether creates a puncture in the cartridges that inflates the airbags.

If the rider is thrown from the bike, a protective air cushion is instantly deployed. Afterward, the CO2 cartridges are replaceable.

While the airbag handles the impact forces, the single-layer denim fabric called ‘Armalith’ handles the abrasion forces, according to officials from the Swedish company Airbag Inside.

They claim they have tested the Mo’cycle brand jeans at speeds of up to 45mph (70kph), with only minimal abrasion to the fabric.

“The airbag covers new areas on the lower body—areas previously unprotected from impact hits, such as the thighs, the rear part of the body, and especially the tailbone.

“To protect the spinal column’s first bone with airbag technology is ground-breaking because spinal column injuries are the ones paralyzing motorcycle riders,” according to the company’s crowdfunding campaign.”

“The Airbag Jeans reduce the risk of injuries, are as comfortable as any other pants, and are 100% reusable.”

The online sale taking place on the crowdfunding platform allows everyday motorcycle riders or retailers to order the product now for $528 (€499).

Moses Shahrivar has been developing protective biker clothing for years and is the founder of the fashion tech startup Mo’cycle.

The first prototype designed by Shahrivar in 2005 was a Kevlar and leather-lined jean, but these airbag jeans are breathable, and come in relaxed or regular fit.
