Let’s state the obvious – Racing is dangerous, and circumstances may arise that can result in death or injury.
Vanson has been at the forefront of race suit development since 1974 with the main goal of keeping the rider as safe as possible with the least amount of injury during a crash. They are excited to announce the latest addition to rider safety – the Air-Pro airbag suit.
The Air-Pro air bag System is carried in a zip-in-zip-out AirLining which allows full replacement of the Air-Pro system without deconstructing the suit.
Like all of our racing suits, the Air-Pro is designed to be used with full armor for best results.
When the time comes (and it will come) and you get pitched from your bike, the Air-Pro system is activated when the lanyard detaches from the trigger mechanism inflating the air bag instantly.
Additionally, the system isn’t a one time use, and riders will be able to install a new CO2 cartridge and reset the assembly for their next race. Unlike other products, our air bag system can be reset many times without the need to send back to the manufacturer at a high cost.
For more information on the airbag system, demonstration videos are available to watch here.
