  • The world’s first dedicated off-road Airbag System, Tech-Air® Off-Road comes with 3 Riding Modes; ENDURO, RALLY, AND STREET.
  • Riding Modes are easy to navigate while on the move via the LED Display located on the front of the System, or via the Tech-Air® App.
  • The Tech-Air® OFF-ROAD System features dual charge capability which means that with two full gas inflators, the System provides two separate airbag
    deployments, since only one gas inflator will deploy to inflate the entire Airbag System during a crash scenario.
  • Quick release cover opening allows for rapid gas inflator replacement by user, only available in countries where gas inflator replacement by individuals is permitted by local regulations.
  • A fully self-contained, standalone system; 3 accelerometers (1 triaxial accelerometer) and 3 gyroscopes (1 triaxial gyroscope) are integrated in the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) to provide the best crash monitoring performance and active airbag protection in a variety of dynamic off-road riding scenarios. No external sensors are required for the system to operate.
  • The Tech-Air® OFF-ROAD System uses an integrated, certified lithium-ion battery, with a fully charged battery life of 30 hours and a recharge time of approximately 4 hours; charging the battery for approximately 1 hour will provide approximately 8 hours of riding time use.
  • The LED Display features an integrated charging port for convenient and easy charging of the System; simply plug in the USB-C cable into the Recharge Port on the System’s LED Display and connect it to a power source.
  • Ease of use; to turn on the Tech-Air® Off-Road System, simply zip up the System and it will automatically turn on and activate the Airbag System. To deactivate the airbag, unzip the System and it will automatically turn off.
  • A dedicated Shipping Mode slide switch is located on the ECU, which when turned on effectively puts the the System into sleep mode. Only accessible once the Electronic Case on the back protector is removed, the Shipping Mode switch allows the battery to be disconnected from the System during transportation or when the System will not be in use for a prolonged period of time. The System is sold with the Shipping Mode turned on, make sure to turn the Shipping Mode off when you open the box and use the Airbag System for the first time.
  • The Tech-Air Offroad System’s Electronic Control Unit, entire wiring system and bladder must be removed before the Protection Jacket can be washed separately.

TECH-AIR® OFF-ROAD RIDING MODES: ENDURO, RALLY, AND STREET

The Tech-Air® Off-Road System provides protection in ENDURO, RALLY, and STREET Modes including crashes against obstacles and loss of control falls (commonlyreferred to as ‘low-side’ and ‘high-side’ type falls).

  • ENDURO Mode is optimized for low and medium speed trails where the User rides on unpaved surfaces like gravel, riverbeds, mud, and other natural terrain. Typically, these riding scenarios include several changes in riding directions, tackling obstacles and hills at lower speeds.
  • RALLY Mode is optimized for fast off-road action on any type of terrain and recommended for riding characterized by longer straight sections with multiple
    bumps and different types of terrain crossed at higher speeds, unlikely encountered in typical Enduro competitions. Typical environments where these riding scenarios occur are mainly characterized by desert terrain (with dunes and sandy ground), gravel and open countryside settings.
  • STREET Mode is optimized for asphalt roads including situations in which the rider’s motorcycle is hit by another vehicle while stopped.
  • FIM Cross Country Rally Regulations Homologated for race use.
  • Proven to be more than twice as protective as passive impact protectors.
  • Dual gas inflators deliver two airbag deployment for guaranteed protection. Please note  2XL size Tech-Air Offroad will discharge both canisters upon deployment.
  • Average inflation time of 52 milliseconds (depending on the size of the airbag).
  • Airbag coverage on chest, back, shoulders, and neck provides upper body protection.
  • Neck protection is provided by the airbag inflating around the neck in compliance with the FIM regulations.
  • The airbag has been fully certified for up to 6 airbag deployments before having to replace it, providing the airbag hasn’t been damaged in one of the first 3 deployments.
  • Performance tested according to DOLOMITICERT S.c.a.r.l. M.16.03.001.1 Protocol for Airbag Protectors Rev. 5 5/07/2022 on ENDURO, RALLY, and STREET algorithms.
  • Performance tested according to DOLOMITICERT’s Technical Disciplinary for Inflatable Protectors with Electronic Activation Revision 5 dated 13 October 2023.
  • IMPORTANT: neck protectors are NOT compatible with Airbag Systems, accordingly the Tech-Air® OFF-ROAD System is NOT compatible with the use of Alpinestars’ Bionic Neck Support (BNS) nor any other neck protections.
  • ALPINESTARS OFF-ROAD PROTECTION JACKET TECH SPECS
  • Premium materials combined with an innovative design and honeycomb Nucleon Cell technology create a passive protector that is highly ventilated, lightweight, ergonomic, and robust.
  • Constructed from a breathable stretch mesh for superior ventilation while keeping the protection close to the rider’s body, the protective garment is CE certified Class C under garment.
  • Slim fit stretchable fabric construction features a floating, highly ventilated, and flexible thermoformed chest protector for an optimal riding experience.
