MotoAirbag by Tucano Urbano (w/video)

Italian motorcycle gear maker Tucano Urbano presented at this year’s EICMA Show a unique type of airbag motorcycle protection gear.
Not as high tech as Dainese’s D-Air or Alpinestars New Tech Air leathers, but it’s much more versatile and has in mind those every day riders, who don’t want to look their heading for a day at the track and more importantly, it’s less expensive.

This airbag can be worn underneath any type of motorcycle jacket, be it a summer or winter jacket that already has elbow and shoulder protection, and it comes in two adjustable sizes for women and an adjustable one for men.

Activation is mechanical, inflation is CO2 based and triggered in 80 microseconds and an easy reloading kit will be available as an optional.
Tucano Urbano’s airbag will go on sale on March 1st 2011, and the cost should be around 380.
00 euros and 490.
00 euros with a light weight summer jacket.
