So, what is TL; DR version of this? Basically, an airbag helps support your head and neck in the event of an accident. Which is very important because this helmet that protects your brain from impacts also makes your head heavier and subject to greater g-forces. A good vest system also protects your chest and back from impact by inflating before you actually come into contact with something.

The clever part of modern motorcycle airbag technology comes thanks to several gyroscope sensors and a computer that controls the inflation system based on highly sophisticated collision detection algorithms. The upside to this is that it’s smart enough to detect if you’re having an involuntary breakup, but the downside is that it can sometimes get confused with huffing when you’re not breaking up, but hey, body’s nerve.

So if you ride, be rad (and alive) like us and the Donut Brothers and up your safety level with the airbag system.
