Airbag overpants, a bit like a vest
CX Air Dynamics exhibited a first working prototype of an airbag overpants on the Moto Lab stand at Club14. For the upper body, there are jackets, coveralls or airbag vests but nothing is currently available for the lower body, explained Xavier Bouquillard, one of the founders of this company based in Saint Clar De Rivière not far from Toulouse. . These overpants are the subject of a patent pending by CX Air Dynamics.
Triggering of the CX Air Dynamics airbag overpants by wire.
This airbag device installed in these overpants increases protection in the event of an accident. This prototype overpants is triggered by a thread that is hung on the motorcycle or the scooter as is the case on many airbag vests. Xavier Bouquillard specifies that an electronically triggered version will complete this wired version presented at the Lyon Motor Show. It will allow coupling with an airbag vest.
