The Brembo Life Jacket meets the need to protect the torso, chest and back and neck; those parts of the body that undergo almost 50% of all injuries in motorcycle or scooter accidents. The air bag deploys in just 80 milliseconds thanks to Brembo’s new activator developed with Helite and Sabelt who designed the inertial reel connection cable that is attached to the motorcycle that triggers the airbag. The system remains inflated for 60 seconds and then the jacket slowly returns to its original size.
The “Life Jacket” will be available in three models for men and two for women and in six colours (white, black, blue, red, silver gray and sand mélange). The fabric is Oxford nylon and Teflon and are very light, the lightest jacket weighs just a little more than a kilo while the heaviest reaches a kilo and half.
The entire collection will be available from November 2010 in selected stores worldwide and online, and prices will range between 390 and 590 Euros.
