Bosch and Honda Working on new Motorcycle Airbag Systems

We've seen recently that both Dainese and Alpinestars are getting serious about promoting airbag jackets for riders. But they no doubt have their limitations.

Is The iC-R The Best Smart Helmet Yet?

Is The iC-R The Best Smart Helmet Yet?

We've seen a lot of hype surrounding the next generation of motorcycle helmets.

While we've recently seen some nice new advances in motorcycle helmet technology, it seems that motorcycle airbag clothing is also making some nice strides forward. Dainese has long provided riders it sponsors with D-air equipped gear and now it's opening that opportunity up to other manufacturers by introducing (and licensing) their D-air armor system.
