Product Details

Alpinestars Tech Air Race Airbag Vest

The Tech Air Race Airbag System is a state-of-the-art, tether-free airbag protection system designed to be used with Alpinestars Tech Air Race prepared riding gear. The onboard computer system uses Alpinestars' proprietary algorithms to process the information gathered by the vest’s accelerometers and gyroscope. Should the system sense a crash, it can trigger and fully inflate the airbag in 45 milliseconds, providing comprehensive protection to the rider's full back, shoulders, kidney area and chest. The Tech Air is ready to go right out of the box—no need to install sensors on the bike or go through a complicated pairing process. Simply install the vest in a compatible jacket or race suit and go ride.

The Tech Air Race comes preloaded with Alpinestars racing algorithms—the same algorithms used in MotoGP and WSBK—which are designed to detect the crashes typical of closed course competition. In this configuration, the system only uses one of its two charges at a time, saving the remaining charge for a second deployment. The vest is immediately ready to deploy its second charge, so if you and your bike are able to continue the race, you won’t have to do it unprotected. If remounting a crashed bike to chase a precious few championship points isn't exactly your style, the vest can be set to deploy both charges simultaneously for a quicker inflation. Due to its larger size, the 2XL size vest will always deploy both charges at once to ensure it is fully inflated in the same time as the smaller vests. 

The Race Vest is also compatible with Alpinestars’ street software settings, for use during typical sport, touring and adventure riding. In addition to being better suited to detecting street crashes, which typically involve a second vehicle, the street configuration fires both charges at the same time, lowering the deployment time to just 25 milliseconds. Users can quickly switch between race and street modes using a PC (no Mac compatibility, yet) loaded with Alpinestars Tech Air Connect software. The Street Vest is NOT compatible with the Race algorithms.

Electronics System:

  • PC compatible software (No current Mac compatibilty) allows users to switch between Race or Street algorithms and update firmware
  • Race vest can be used in street or race modes
  • Fully enclosed ACU (Airbag Control Unit) is seal-protected within the vest's CE level 2 back protector
  • One gyroscope and one accelerometer housed inside ACU
  • One additional accelerometer on each shoulder
  • Lithium ion battery with approximately 25 hours of use when fully charged
  • One hour of charge time yields four hours of ride time

Airbag System:

  • Comprehensive protection of back, shoulders, kidney area, chest and upper abdomen
  • Race Vest offers extra coverage for the shoulders and collar bones
  • All Tech Air Vests include two inflator charges
  • Argon inflator charges are CE certified to ISO 14451 standard
  • Internal airbag tethers used to control final deployed shape create less bulk than a chambered design and allow for quicker inflation
  • Nylon-6 airbag material is lightweight and breathable
  • Airbag inflates in 45 milliseconds in Race mode and remains fully inflated for 5 seconds

Operation:

  • Installs easily in Tech Air Race Vest compatible gear with VELCRO® and YKK zippers
  • One plug, located at the back of the vest, plugs into LED sleeve display plug
  • Magnetic closure detection system built into the vest arms the system once it senses the suit has been zipped and the bike is in motion
  • When the system detects a crash, the airbag will be fully deployed within .045 seconds
  • System is instantly ready to redeploy (not 2XL)

Sizing:

  • Size SM vests fit: size 46 euro
  • Size MD vests fit: size 48-50 euro
  • Size LG vests fit: 52-54 euro
  • Size XL vests fit: 56 euro
  • Size 2XL vests fit: 58-60 euro

Special Notes:

The Tech Air System requires registration with Alpinestars. Upon purchase, RevZilla will email you your portal login credentials. If you do not receive an email by the time your order is delivered, please reach out to us for assistance.

Due to the technical nature of the Tech Air System, special care and maintenance is required. Once the airbag has been deployed, the vest must be sent to Alpinestars for maintenance, repacking and cleaning. Please note that if the suit has been serviced or either of the airbags have been deployed, the vest is no longer returnable. Please read the User Manual in detail, and let RevZilla know if you have any additional questions.

Note: The Tech Air Race Vest is ONLY COMPATIBLE with Tech Air Race prepared riding gear. It is not compatible with Tech Air Street gear. Due to its larger size, the 2XL size Tech Air Race Vest will always deploy both charges simultaneously.

My experience as a daily user
I have used the Tech Air Race vest every day for a few weeks now – I have a Missile 1pc suit and a Missile jacket for it, but so far I have been using the suit almost exclusively. I ride on both track and street with a full 1pc suit – not the most convenient thing in the world for daily commutes, but I will trade convenience for whatever extra safety I can get in order to mitigate the inherent risks of riding.

As such, I think the Tech Air system is nothing short of groundbreaking and BY FAR the best, most successful implementation of the riding air bag concept yet developed. No other system is self contained, without dependencies on GPS or bike mounted sensors, optimized for track or race use, modular and so well integrated with its supporting garments as the Tech Air Race vest from A*. As a lifelong, all year around motorcyclist, I am grateful to A* for taking the time to develop such a complex and costly product. This is young, complicated technology, but in A*’s implementation it feels mature and practical enough to be not just usable, but I would say essential for those with the means to afford it.

I will not get into the technical details of the Tech Air vest, there is plenty of detailed information out there, but I’ll point out a few things from my experience:

- I am a bodybuilder: 6’0” and ~240lbs. with a 52in. chest, 20in. arms at the bicep and a 34in. waist. Finding off-the-rack riding apparel that fits has always been a huge challenge, especially with European brands. In recent years things have gotten better, with A*, in particular, really improving the versatility of their products with large stretch panels and adaptable materials. I was worried the Tech Air vest would remain a pipe dream – I ordered a 2XL and, lo and behold, it fits me perfectly (if at the very limit). My shoulders fit (just) and even under the suit the vest remains comfortable (and securely tight). I am very happy with the fit – bigger/muscular guys don’t need to miss out on this tech. In fact, because the suits/jackets designed to accommodate the vest need to be even MORE stretchable than usual to account for inflation, the Missile suit (size 60) I got has been BY FAR the most comfortable, best fitting suit I have ever had. It adapts to my body shape like it was custom tailored – I have never been so relaxed while in the tuck!

- An important NOTE about the vest, and something that is rather poorly described in the documentation: after arming the system by closing the flaps, the vest goes through a boot up and diagnostic sequence. Assuming there are no immediate errors/malfunctions (these cases are listed in the docs, in case there is something actually wrong with your vest) the LEDs on the arm will flash red-yellow-green a couple of times, then the green light will blink for a few seconds, then the process will start again with the red-yellow-green again, green light flash, etc. When I first got the suit, I would just stand there watching the LEDs do their dance, and the process would go on for 20 seconds or so and then the light would go solid red and the suit would go into standby mode. I was very confused… read the docs a bunch of times, updated the firmware, ran the diagnostics, tried both track and street software, tried both suit and jacket, etc. No matter, always the same result. All diag and updates seemed fine, all sensors reported to be fully functional, so I did not know what else to do.

A quick call to A* answered my question. It turns out that that light dance routine and the flashing green light are what they call the STABILITY TEST, a process the vest goes through after boot up to determine if there is a ride going on or if the vest has been activated by mistake and it is just hanging in a closet somewhere. During this test the system is looking for movement, so me standing there like a dumbass watching the LEDs do their thing and waiting for the light to go solid green was just about the worst thing one can do.

So, here’s the proper way to use the system: don’t arm the vest until you are all ready to go… boots, helmet, everything on except for your gloves. As the very last step before getting going close the flaps, put on your gloves and get riding. The lights will flash for a few seconds and then the green light goes steady on – the system is ready and will deploy if (regrettably) needed.

Like I said, this process could be explained a bit more specifically in the docs, but the A* guys were super helpful and have a dedicated support group just for the Tech Air vests, so a quick call was all that was needed to solve the issue.

Overall, I am impressed and thrilled with the vest and the Missile garments to go with it – it is a a technological breakthrough and a genuine leap forward in riding safety. If you have the choice, skip that replacement exhaust and get yourself one – mitigating your risks is worth the investment and the bit of learning curve it takes to get the best out of this system.

Fallen from a cliff - alive to write a review
Let's comment previous feedbacks. I have the 2xl and yes it has one shot regardless of the setup. However, I think normal XL would have been enough. I have been explained this feature before I bought it so I was OK with it.

I had it with my Oscar jacket. I had riding in the Alps and I had a get off at one of the twisty. I don't know exactly how the crashed happen as I was blacked out but people behind me say I have avoided the steel guardrail and end of the corner I have lowsided the bike. The bike was sliding but the front wheel stopped in the ditch ground and flipped the bike and catapulted me down from the road to the forest hillside approx 50-60%. I have fallen about 80-100 feet. (hitting couple of trees in the process). I was out about 30-60 sec. Woke up feeling my vomit in my mouth. Helicopter took me to the hospital (been sedated don't remember anything). Full body MRI, x-ray. I have one collarbone broken and three ribs in the back. Very slight sensitivity at the hips. And that's it. No harm of any kind to the legs, neck or head (proper protection there also). No surgery, stitching of any kind. I don't remember the airbag going off but I have downloaded the crash data. So, was walking 48 hours from the crash 4 days later walked eight floors up and down. (Shoei X-14,Rokker Tech jeans with protectors). This is my fifth day. Alive. Some might call miracle. I still was lucky and I don't think this is the intended use case. But. If you thinking about an upgrade of your bike or buying this you know my recommendation. F@#& the bike you can buy new one! You have only one life!!!

Used Microsoft Surface to change from race mode to street mode (demonstrating that you can use a tablet)

Puts a little bounce in my game
I'm not going to pretend like I'm the Michelin man now that I have this thing, but it's good to know I've got the latest and greatest thing money can buy to protect my far more expensive body parts. I just wish AStars had a better selection of jackets - like a nonperf sport leather jacket for this winter (when they intro'd the vest!) and a jacket that's perf'd but not so race cut like the missile jacket (see my review of that). I like how Dainese makes a lot of jackets that could be worn on track, but aren't so constricting and uncomfy as a full race jacket.

Setup was a little challenging as far as getting it reg'd and connected online, but customer service was great and we got it all worked out nicely. now I can shift from street to race pretty quickly, but I have to connect it to my computer with the supplied USB cable, log in, set it up, yadayadayada. Once it's done, you only have to fuss with it when you go to the track which isn't that often in my case. The upside of all the work, is that every time you switch settings you basically upgrade the internal software. When this product grows up it'll have a switch on it to go from race mode to street mode (no brainer A-Stars!), a charge port next to the lights on the sleeve and hopefully by then Astars will have generously licensed other mfrs to produce jackets that work with it (for the good of the people, not A-Stars). Even better is if they certify other jackets and allow their vest to function without wiring or lights on the jacket (maybe a wireless wrist worn or bike mounted light panel). The velcro is a little tedious to mate just right and the charge port is in an awkward location half way up the back protector. The vest does weigh quite a bit too - not a big deal, but noticable. All said, nothing I would call a deal killer based on cost/benefit. A great first gen product that'll likely save a lot of limbs if not lives.

Excellent protection, less expensive than medical bills
Lowsided at about 70mph in a Missile suit with the tech-air airbag. The airbag deployed and was worth every penny. Zero upper body injuries to speak of. I remember thinking I felt like I was sliding along on a pillow.

Vest is a little uncomfortable at first but once you're used to it in the suit you don't even notice it.

There's no price tag for life safety.
The tech-air race vest is an amazing product. Provides life safety at the highest level. One you register the vest online you can easily download updates or the street algorithm. The software is very easy to use and there is no doubt to what algorithm is currently flashed into the vest computer.

The fit is comfortable when wearing it with a jacket, at first it's noticable and bit bulky but you get used to the fit and feel very quickly. I don't notice anything different once I start riding. I really appreciate that Alpinestars provides a 25 hour ride time battery capability. There is no need to stress over the battery life. The LED sequence is OK, it kind of has a lot going on and I need to look at the quick reference guide one in a while to remember the LED light meanings...(the Dainese D-AIR LED is much more user friendly). The LEDs are quite bright but they are fine and do not bother when riding.
My biggest gripe that I truly hope Alpinestars fixes is the magnet closer to turn on the vest. More often than not there is imperfect contact and you need to retry to closer. If the magnet was a snap button magnet closer it would be 1000% better and have true perfect contact Every time. You learn to line it up and get it one the first try about 70% of the time...at least thats how it's going for me. Overall it's a great vest and the best protection. I bought this race version for the use of track/racing and the option to use on the street with the street algorithm flashed in. With the street algorithm the vest will deploy at a stand still of you get rear-ended, and fire in nearly half the time. It's definitely worth it. There's no price tag for life safety.

Have used the vest twice now with Missle Air suit for street -track is coming in a month or so. Comfortable and fairly easy to set up and use - read the instructions first. Ownership transfer was no problem.
Haven't crashed it and hope I never do but if so this is about the best protection available today.
Only complaint is the vest is initially set up for track and if you want street mode you have download and install the street software and then reinstall the track software if you want to switch back - must do this on each mode switch. That in and of itself is relatively painless BUT you have to use a windows machine as there is no Mac software available now or for the foreseeable future according to AStars. Luckily I had an old windows laptop laying around that still works, but beware if you don't.
Bang for the buck - about the same as any other insurance - hope not to use it but if I need it...
Protection and durability - time will tell
features - pretty much a unique product so no real comparisons
confort - very comfortable - little tight at first in the suit but after a few hours it is fine
style - about as stylish as a life vest can be.

Be aware of sizing changes to leathers
Hello,

First this is a great product and I have been waiting for it for over a year. Now for the issue I have, when you put this in a jacket it makes the size of the jacket go down by two sizes maybe more. When you put it in a suit it was even worse (could not get the suit over my solders). I wear a size 58 and it fits a little snug without the vest but I have been wearing it for over a year and have taken many trips (300+ miles) with no issue, fits great. Now after inserting the vest it is unwearable. This is partly the need for me to lose a few pounds however I thought it best to let others know that the vest does impact the size of the suit and even the jacket. A note on the size change of the jacket is that it decreases the size mainly around the abdomen and can be a little uncomfortable for longer rides.

These are not deal breakers and I can personally try to impact them by weight lose however it should conveyed to the customer that if you have a suit or jacket that fits snug then this will change the fitment of those items.

Required Safety Kit
Zip this into a A* jacket and it feels heavy, but put it on and I barely notice it. What I do notice is the little GREEN light on my left sleeve and oh does it inspire confidence on my bike, in NYC traffic. This is the best piece of safety kit I hope to never use, just like the airbags in my car.

I've been reading about this tech for a while now, and I use airbag tech in backcountry skiing (Black Diamond Jetpack 35L). However, the tech is for different uses -the skiing bag is for keeping me afloat in a slide (which I've tested and works) and the Tech Air vest is more to stave off trauma. On a motorcycle, where there is no cage protecting me, this should be a mandatory piece of safety kit. Yes, it is expensive, but if it can keep you out of the hospital for any serious trauma and keep you from dying, is it not worth a couple bucks? As motorcyclists, we justify all sorts of expensive gadgets for our bikes that make them louder or gain a few HP, but what about protecting the most important thing on the bike? The rider!

I should not have waited this long to get access to this technology. My wife finally had it and gave me the ultimatum to either get rid of the bike or get the airbag. I got the race version because I do a few track days and also because it looks lighter than the street version. If you do use this for street and race, you MUST ENABLE the street algorithm so the bag protects you if you're hit while standing still and it will blow both gas canisters to offer maximum protection. It's easy to toggle between the two algorithms in the A* software.

I am 6'0" tall and 170-lbs. and wear a size 40 blazer which puts me in between MD and LARGE, so I went with the large. It fits perfectly, and is very comfortable. Paired with a textile A* jacket with vents, it really isn't that suffocating. I've worn it on a couple 90-degree days in the humid Northeast summer and it's bearable and allows plenty of air to flow. Above 90-degrees here, I'd avoid it but then again, I'd probably avoid riding entirely when it gets that hot and humid. I think this thing will be perfect (temperature wise) for me in Spring, Fall, and Winter (if I ride).

In summary, this really inspires confidence on the bike seeing that solid green light. I also believe this airbag tech will be required on the street like it is in MotoGP. On a motorcycle, surrounded by cars, it's a no brainer to immediately buy this technology to protect the rider so you can keep riding, if you have a fall or something worse. I imagine that shortly it'll be as 2nd nature to me as my helmet and riding without it would be unthinkable.

Can't recommend until data portal changed
I cannot recommend this product until the data portal is changed. If you buy this system and you want to set it up for street while not at the track, or if you EVER want to update the firmware, you need to access the data portal.

This, by itself, is not bad. What IS BAD, is that you have to contact support, with the chassis number and proof of purchase, so they can HAND ADD the product to your data portal account. Yes, you read that correctly. Adding products is done BY HAND. This is an absurd requirement as it means you have to contact support before you've even used the product a single time if you want to ride street before the track. This is one of the most bone headed business decisions I've seen in motorcycle gear. 1700 dollars for the system and a jacket, and it needs support tickets on day one. Not because it's broke, no no, because some suit decided it was a requirement. I can't even fathom how much money will be lost on support man hours on this.

When and if they adjust this requirement I will update my review. I would buy something else for the time being. For 1700 bucks this should not be a hurdle anyone has to deal with.

2X Tech-Air Race vest
Full disclosure - have not yet used it but do own it. However, I wanted to get the review out so other larger people understand that the product is being falsely advertised in one aspect for the 2X sizes. I just discovered after purchasing it that though Alpinestars doesn't advertise it, the 2X vest uses both charges to inflate during a single event. This means that the advantage claimed by Tech-Air in that during a race day, if you go down in practice and the vest deploys you still have another deployment left - is false. With the 2X, if it deploys, there are no more charges left and you have to send the vest back to Alpinestars. For all practical purposes, this means that in terms of the efficiency of this, the only real difference between this and the Dianese D-Air is that you don't have to send the entire suit back - you can just send the vest. However, in both cases you have to send them to California and have them (hopefully quickly) turn them around at a cost of approximately $250 plus shipping. I am deeply ticked off at Alpinestars for failing to disclose this. I find it to be sloppy and lazy marketing at best.

I do a lot of adventure riding, will the airbags deploy even if I have a small off, say if I fall off when I am standing still (which I have done a few more times than I would like to admit) or riding slowly in deep sand?
A shopper on Jul 3, 2018
Will the Tech-Air Race Vest also fit jackets that are designed for the street version (e.g. Yaguara Jacket)? Are they (race/street version) interchangeable?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2018
Do I have to size up (suit) or is the Tech Air Race comparable to a bulky back protector? What is the exact measurement of the vest?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I did verify that you should have to size up on jackets or suits. Just purchased the race version.
I currently use alpinestar one piece chest protector Do I need to use my chest protector with airbag system? Or does airbag system protect chest without inserts?
Ahmed Z on Dec 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You need chest protectors, there are none that come with the system itself. Although most of the jackets that it inserts into come standard with some form of chest protection. The airbag does protect the chest if it deploys.
How good is the integrated back protector, and is it multi-use? I love my forcefield and would rather break my collarbone than my back :)
Jeff B on Nov 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's very good. I don't understand the question about multi-use. It's very sturdy and the only way it won't offer back protection is if you break it. The solid back protection obviously functions even if the airbag isn't on.
Can i wear this vest with different suit? Since everything in bult in the vest already.
Anh V on Oct 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: TechAir Vest can only be worn with the TechAir compatible garments as they have built in stretch panels in case of deployment.
Page 10 of the tech air manual states that a suit size of 48 to 50 fits a person of 5' to 5' 4". On the revzilla site the Alpinstars sizing chart states a size 50 fits a person of 176cm (5'9"). What document is correct? I purchased a size 50 suite (med vest) and I'm slightly below all measurements in the Revzilla size chart. The suit is tight. My concern is that I will not have enough room in the suite for the vest to inflate.

BEST ANSWER: The sizing in the tech air manual is a little off. The 48 and 50 are good for heights of up to 5'8" and 5'10", respectively. The size charts for the suits is correct. As far as the fit of the suit with the tech air vest, that sounds correct. It's a race fit, meaning a snug fit. And the tech air compatible suits have specific expansion areas built just for the tech air to deploy. You're good to go.

Will the tech aire race protect my neck in a situation of deployment? Is it as efficient as the Leatt STX?
