Airbag vests for motorcyclists being tested
Models by Alpinestars, Dainese and Held
The ADAC has extensively tested three airbag vests for motorcyclists from Alpinestars, Dainese and Held. All three models were able to convince in terms of protection.
All three airbag jackets tested by ADAC have one thing in common: All three models scored points in the most important discipline, protection potential. The test revealed larger differences in terms of handling. The models were tested Alpinestars Tech-Air Street-e System (price: from 850 euros), Dainese D-Air Street KT600 (price: from 600 euros) and Held In & Motion eVest (price: from 750 euros). The vests from Held and Alpinestars were tested in combination with compatible jackets. The Dainese D-Air Street KT600 is the only one of the three vests tested that can be worn under any protective clothing.
Differences in repair
While the two vests from Alpinestars from Dainese can only be repaired by the dealer or manufacturer after it has been triggered, the eVest can be removed from hero You can also make it operational again on your own by replacing the cartridge, which is essential for triggering the airbag, yourself. Accordingly, the Held-Vest scores particularly well in this category. The Alpinestars vest is rather satisfactory here. In return, the Alpinestars were able to evaluate the handling “Very well” dust off and also offered the largest protection area of all three candidates. Otherwise none of the products made any major blunders. The Dainese vest cut in all categories with the grade “Good” away. In general, all tested models were given the overall grade by the ADAC “Good” rated.
All three airbag vests were awarded the overall grade by the ADAC “Good” rated.
During the test, all three products had an intervention time of around 80 milliseconds. The intervention time, which was the focus of the ADAC test, represents the period from the first push to the complete inflation of the airbag vest. Accordingly, the protection of all tested products was already before the contact between the motorcyclist and the obstacle, in this case a car. The ADAC crash test was carried out at a speed of 50 km / h. In this scenario, all three vests offered additional protection in the chest and back area. All three products work independently. A rip cord, which had to be attached to the motorcycle with earlier airbag systems, is not required. The sensor module integrated in the vest, which triggers the airbag, has to be charged after an operating time of almost 20 hours.
The test procedure in detail
The ADAC has set up its own evaluation scheme for the airbag test. The criteria were used for testing “Expected protection potential”, “Weight, comfort”, “handling” and “Maintenance and Connectivity”. Since the protection potential is the most important criterion for an airbag vest, this criterion benefited from a greater weighting of 50 percent. The other test fields were weighted with 25 and 20 percent respectively. The price of the respective products played no role in the evaluation.

The ADAC airbag crash test has shown that airbag vests offer additional protection for the chest and back, at least in accidents at speeds of up to 50 km / h. All three products were awarded the overall grade “Good” rated. It is a shame that the effectiveness of airbag vests has not been tested in detail in accidents at higher speeds. In the crash test, however, the ADAC indicates that the protective effect of airbag vests is significantly lower at significantly higher speeds.
