Klim teams up with European tech company In&Motion

KLIM has partnered with In&motion, a motorcycle airbag company, to introduce the Ai-1 Airbag Vest, an autonomous airbag system designed for use under a riding jacket for added protection in the event of a crash.

The Ai-1 Airbag Vest is one of the highest safety rated motorcycle airbag systems available, with a detection + inflation time under 60 milliseconds, and the capability to offer protection to the thorax, abdomen, spine and neck. The lightweight, electronic vest is fully wireless and autonomous, meaning there are no sensors needed on the bike. An inert-gas canister provides the pressure needed to inflate the vest so quickly, and it can easily be replaced by the user.

 

So, I went ahead and pre-ordered one. Should be here in early February. I’ll report back when I have a few miles on it. I will probably go with the lease option on the In&Box due to the better warranty and cancellation options.

 

Edit 2/15/20: Klim has informed me that the airbags will not ship until beginning of April 2020. Another two months wait.
