Bering airbag jacket

At this week’s Motorcycle Expo event we got a chance to try out Bering’s super high-tech airbag vest.

It’s still in the development stage and won’t be on sale just yet but from what we saw it’ll be a quality bit of kit.

Working in a similar way to Dainese’s D-Air and Alpinestars’ Tech-Air systems the Bering vest is triggered when sophisticated motion sensors decide you’re in the very early stages of having a crash. The inflation time is measured in milliseconds and we can’t wait to try out the final product. Keep your eyes peeled in future for more details.

In the meantime, enjoy the video.
