Rev’it Avertum Tech-Air Airbag – Product Review – Factory Superbike.
Is it better than we thought?
Riding motorcycles, for many of us, is a passion that courses through our veins. But while the thrill of the ride remains unparalleled, safety should never take a back seat. Today, I’m thrilled to share my experience with a game-changing product that has left me both impressed and confident in its ability to protect riders.
The Rev’it Avertum Tech-Air® Airbag Vest exemplifies a perfect union of design, performance, and innovation. Every stitch, every sensor, every design choice is a testament to the meticulous attention to detail poured into its creation.
Design & Aesthetics
From the first glance, you’re greeted with premium aesthetics that ooze class. Yet, it doesn’t scream for attention. The collarless design and hidden trigger tab are sleek additions, allowing it to slip seamlessly beneath your riding jacket. Crafted from durable ripstop fabric and enhanced with breathable mesh, the Avertum Tech-Air® doesn’t just look the part; it feels it too.
This airbag vest carries with it a legacy – two decades of research and testing in the adrenaline-packed arena of MotoGP. Every second spent on those tracks, every ounce of critical data collected, has played a role in perfecting the Avertum Tech-Air®. As someone who has immense respect for the extremes of MotoGP, knowing the history behind this vest gives me an extra layer of confidence.
The vest’s autonomous airbag system is the heart of its performance. In the event of a collision, it activates with lightning speed, offering protection equivalent to 18 CE-level 1 back protectors. To put it in perspective, it reduces the impact force by an astounding 93% compared to traditional protectors.
Three accelerometers, three gyroscopes, and a battery of advanced sensors are woven into the very fabric of the vest. And yet, despite this cutting-edge tech, it remains discreet and non-intrusive. It’s like having a guardian angel riding with you; always watching, always ready, but never in the way.
Collaboration for Safety
REV’IT! and Alpinestars might approach the riding community differently, but their shared vision for rider safety is evident in this vest. The Avertum Tech-Air® airbag vest symbolizes a collaborative triumph, offering riders the freedom to ride across a spectrum of terrains and scenarios.
