Motorcycle Airbags Exist - But No One Uses Them?

Airbags are a no-brainer in cars. But the case is not so cut-and-dry on motorcycles. Here’s why airbags haven’t reached mainstream adoption on motorcycles.

    The freedom? The risk? No, people won't use them because it's 700-1000 per. If it was required to be sold in the purchase price of every new bike, you'd see a lot more of them.

    Anyone got any experience with the Flyastar/Fuanqiur ones that are around £100/120$ on eBay? They look a little less well designed than the Helite, but seem to have the functionality? I think for £100, id consider getting one, as long as they're not totally pointless... as I'm looking at spending £40 on a new high vis vest anyway... Also, is there a specific place that you attach them to your bike? or do you have to make an adaption?

    Deciding which airbag to buy. Apparently the one I want isn’t made yet. Tethered bags don’t deploy until you’re thrown clear of the bike and the tether is pulled, but in a lowside the rider often slams into the pavement or guardrail while still “on” the bike; the tether wouldn’t be ulled before impact. The electronic airbags solve this problem, but they suffer from all the flaws FortNine points out. On balance, this tethered airbag is probably the best for now. And it’s cheap.

    the ease of change is actually a very big argument as most small crashes and slide will trigger the system while it being of no use at all. I've owned a tethered airbag for three years, have changed the canister twice (one slide, one because it's recommended to change the canister every two years), and feel completely naked without it now...

    Theres a difference between requiring it in a car vs requiring it with a motorcycle. In the car doesnt really affect the drivers wallet. There are $15k cars brand new with airbags. A requirement on motorcyclists would impact the riders wallet. The bike manufacturer cant do anything since its two wheels and it wont matter since youll be off the bike in a second. These are not cheap. Plus, there would be no way to reliably enforce it. If i am wearing a jacket, there is no way a cop can tell i am not wearing an airbag jacket, or wearing one underneath. Plus, there are still multiple states that do not even require riders to wear helmets.

    This thing protects your neck but not your arms or legs were the vast majority of riders get hurt. So it is really a one trick pony for a rather unusual,mostly urban scenario,as motorcycles do not crash head on on the highway or even on back roads.Padded jackets are more than enough,thank you very much. Those insufferable safety maniacs should take their obsession somewhere else as far as i am concerned.I personally had enough with them this year,along with many others.

    Totalmente en desacuerdo, es una lástima, pensé en tus demás videos que tenías suficiente experiencia. Recuerda, en las motos existen, en su mayoría 3 puntos de impacto, el 1er es al caerte de la moto, ese impacto con tu “Airbag Conectado” si no te liberas de la moto no funciona de nada... 2do. Abrasión en el asfalto, si lograste liberarte o separarte de tu motocicleta tendrás esa protección del Airbag y por último el impacto final 3ero (no todas las veces lo vas a sufrir pero en su mayoría de casos si) vuelvo a lo mismo, si TU NO TE LIBERAS O SUELTAS DE LA MOTOCICLETA no estarás protegido. Ahora bien, el mundo de las motocicletas no está diseñado para “Comprar Cosas Baratas” y más cuando se trata de tu seguridad y protección.

    I dont own a motorcycle yet but I want to get one soon and I want to be as safe as I can be. Will the airbags go off if I drop the bike? I feel like the airbag that is attached to the bike by a string would be more likely to go off vs the accelerometer but that one could still go off and I dont wanna have to pay or deal with the airbag everytime I drop the bike. Should I just wait until I drop my bike less to get the airbag?

    Cudos to presenter for clear, concise and honest talk 🙌 I've used a Helite Turtle 2 the last three seasons here in Norway. Luckily I have yet to know if it works when I actually need it, but I can say that the tether thing is a nobrainer after a few rides. I was also immediately attracted to this simple and low-tech release mechanism - at least for now; I can inspect and verify very quickly that it's in good shape and "active". I admit that I don't use the vest when I do short rides around town, and on those occasions I just tuck away the tether under the seat. I use it on all highway or longer trips, and I even bought the Hi-Vis version. The point is that I almost never meet other bikers with one around here. I get that those dollars can be difficult for young riders to spend, but I highly recommend it. Be yourself and ride safely. PS: the low-vis version is just a safe ;)

    I wouldn't knock airbags in cars. Despite the prior race to the bottom on price, they have been a HUGE success. My car has no less than 9 of them, figure 500 dollars a piece and that's almost 5,000 dollars just in airbags alone; and if they all deploy at the same time the car is totaled just from the airbag damage. Imagine being the tester at the factory who crossed the wrong 2 wires. LOL All that money does make a difference however. Serious injuries in cars have become so rare, people feel free to drive like manics and still rarely get hurt in them. We've seen police chases that end in spectacular crashes and the perp just walks away. From an old school motorhead standpoint, that's just impossible but there it is. It seems the only way to really get hurt in a car is to completely destroy the car and you and your airbags with it. Seriously. Just recently, if you look at Tiger Woods car, you can easily see how destroyed it was and it was obvious someone got hurt in it. Not so many years ago, it would have been just as obvious that someone got killed in it. That's not the case today, even in our perception of it. That's one of the reasons speed limits are up. Cars are much safer by degrees of magnitude and airbags are a very large part of that. And don't forget, the airbag systems are coupled with the seatbelts that are deployed with shotgun shells, you're not going anywhere. Sorry, even my 10 year old 2011 Jeep has 7 of them, and shotgun shell seatbelts, and weight monitoring seats. Really folks, 9 airbags. Steering wheel airbag, passenger side dash airbag, 2 front headrest airbags, 2 front seat bolster airbags, 2 front window curtain airbags, 1 full curtain airbag separating the front and back seats = 9. Anyone with a simple Dodge Charger or Challenger has that many. I'll bet many of you do too, no matter what you drive. And they're all variable power bags depending on how heavy each person is. The car monitors the weight in each seat. Like I said; the old school motorhead in me says this is impossible, but there it is and they obviously work very well.

    I own an ixon electronic airvest. One issue you missed was how an electronic vest will deploy if you are hit from behind and the side before you are impacted. The helite will not do that. You need to be talking from tbe bike for it to deploy. It certainly does offer excellent protection though. Good review, I think more people need to get into airbags, but I wouldn't discount the electronic ones.

    Why did you totally ignore that the main downside of the teather is that it fires based on distance alone? All those electronic ones fired way sooner than the teather would have because the bike and the rider were generally moving together, so smaller change in distance.
