Safety Just Got More Hi-Tech: KLIM and In&motion Airbag System

Apr 04, 2019 View Comments by

The wearable airbag for motorcyclists has come a long way in the last few years, and KLIM is the latest player to enter the field. KLIM and In&motion, a motorcycle airbag company, have teamed up to develop an “intelligent” wearable airbag system. The partnership will add another level of safety to KLIM’s high-end weatherproof gear. It’s gear you use every time you ride, while keeping your fingers crossed that you’ll never need it: the motorcycle airbag vest has kicked motorcycle safety up a few notches, providing impact protection and reducing the risk of injury in a crash.

In&motion has created wearable airbag systems that use smart technology to constantly update and perfect crash detection algorithms; by measuring the user’s movements, the system can detect a loss of balance or a crash, and then inflate the airbag.

The France-based startup has already created three autonomous airbag systems and one mechanical trigger airbag system for MotoGP, road-focused motorcycling, competitive skiing, and horseback riding. In&motion airbag systems earned the Consumer Technology Association’s CES Innovation Award in 2016 for the Ski Airbag Vest and in 2017 for the Moto Airbag Vest.
