a great idea... helmets break a lot of collar bones in wrecks. This might nearly eliminate that, as well as support the C-spine.

Whoops. Anybody got a link to the original? Apparently I don't search very well.

It looks like they tested it at slower speeds. Click the link and there's a video and some other shots towards the bottom of the page.

I would imagine that something like that would be pricey to have repacked but I couldn't find anything on pricing or it's availability in the US.

Shit... you just strap the SOBs to 14 racers and send em out on a test track... I promise someone will bin it.

I'd do it.

I saw a vid of a rider low siding intentionally to test this out on you tube. He wasn't going that fast but he got up and said that it worked well. I guess if it inflates then its working. Something better than nothing

You do realize that there is a lot of inflatable jackets on the market already? This might have better sensors and stuff, but there are alot of companies in this field...

I guess it's all relative. 121-123 km/h is like 75 mph or so. When you said high speed I was thinking like 150 mph or something.
