These airbag pants could save your life
Do you ride a motorcycle? If you do you know it’s a risky business. There are a lot of terrible drivers out there that don’t look out for motorcycles. Getting hit while you ride can be fatal. Although you might be able to lower your risk of injury or death by investing in a pair of airbag pants.
While they aren’t on the market yet a Swedish company called Airbag Inside Sweden AB has raised over $180,000 to fund their idea. The prototype, which is shown in the video below shows a pair of pants with an airbag inside. Much like the airbag vests for riders this device has a rip cord that deploys the airbag in the event of a crash.
The airbag pants inflate which helps lessen some of the impact of the crash. After they inflate the airbags can be reused. By being able to get the devices refilled you don’t have to worry about buying new pairs each time. Would you be willing to wear one of this while your ride? Let us know in the comments below!
