What's actually like to crash with an airbag system || Alpinestars Tech-Air 5 Airbag System

Writing a Crash Tested review is never something we want to do, but if I’m going to write one, then this one is especially important. If you weren’t aware, a couple months ago while comparing the Triumph Speed Twin and BMW R nineT, I was hit by a car. I flew over the hood of the car, did a flip in the air, landed on my shoulder, and rolled to a stop. It sucked, but thankfully I was able to walk away, injury-free albeit pretty sore.

Great to hear first hand how this system acually performed and not just the 7-10 bullet points a company provides on products.

Wow, this is an amazing article and first-hand story. I can't believe he hit the ground with 18g force and didn't break anything. I'm sold.
