- Airbag helmets anyone?
Interesting concept. Its another science fiction idea coming to life. Appears in stevensons snow crash
I think I prefer the airbag jackets that protect the neck ( along with a helmet) although that seems to as well
I wonder what the weight is? As waswas says I would want to see what its performance in oblique ( rotational) impacts would be. My guess would be that it would be good – better than standard helmets as the outer layer has freedom to movePosted 7 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I like, but on a motorbike once youve let go of the bike its bad news. On a mountainbike you get off to buy cake etc.
Also (IMO, I’m just hypothersising), Motorbike riders tend to crash at high speed and boucne allong the ground. So some low modulous padding (an airbag) would be a good thing. Mountainbike riders tend to go headfirst into the ground/trees/rocks, so I don’t think you could pressurize the bag enough to do any meaningfull work in disipating the energy?Posted 7 years ago
