Traveling by motorcycle can be made safer with the use of an airbag jacket that inflates if you’re ejected from your bike. It has already saved lives.
Motorcycle airbag jackets work by filing the jacket up with carbon dioxide when the rip cord between the bike and the jacket is broken. Riders can adjust how hard the cord must be pulled to cause the jacket to inflate and have to remember to connect it to the bike each time they get on.
