2013 AIMExpo: SaferMoto Airbag-Equipped Vests and Jackets – Video
One of the more intriguing booths we visited at the American International Motorcycle Expo in Orlando, Fla. was SaferMoto’s. This company distributes a variety of airbag-equipped vests and jackets for motorcyclists.
SaferMoto tells us that motorcycle police in Japan, Germany and France all wear these vest and jackets, produced by a Japanese manufacturer called Hit-Air. In fact, equestrian athletes from 18 countries wore these products at the 2012 London Olympics.
