Kickstarter launched a fundraiser for a very useful accessory: a cyclist jacket with built-in airbags. The pillows deploy automatically in the event of a fall or collision.
Looks like a regular jacket. Perhaps with reflective panels, but they do not surprise either. The jacket is protected from wind and moisture, breathable polyester.
The pillows, as I said, will only inflate upon a fall or collision. The crash sensor will hide under the bike seat.
The pillows inflate in 0.08 seconds. Inside is a CO2 bottle that needs to be changed after each use. The system itself will have to be charged. One charge lasts for a week.
Cirrus Jacket Kickstarter Price – 438 euro (about 39 thousand rubles). The first sponsors will begin to receive “equipment” in September this year.
