What is an inflatable motorcycle jacket?

If you ride a motorcycle, then you are probably aware that you are the most vulnerable vehicle on California roadways. Being completely exposed puts you at a high risk for serious injuries or death if you get into an accident. People in vehicles have various safety devices that you do not have, such as seat belts and air bags. However, a new invention may hold the key to keeping you safer in the event of an accident.

According to Popular Mechanics, there is now an inflatable motorcycle jacket that works similarly to the airbags in vehicles. It contains sensors within the jacket that signal impact and cause it to expand or blow up. It is calibrated so it will only go off due to a major impact, such as that in a crash, so there is no worries about accidental inflation.

This idea could revolutionize motorcycle safety. It offers an extra layer of protection for your body that is not currently available otherwise. Typically, you are relying on your helmet as the only protection you have against the rough road if you are thrown from your bike. With this jacket, you have a cushion that makes impact less jarring and damaging to your body.

While the inflatable jackets on the market now come with a rather hefty price tag, if they catch on, those prices could come down, making them affordable for all riders. One day, they could become as standard as helmets. This information is meant to educate only and should not be taken as legal advice.
