AN ULTRA-PERFORMANT AND ACCOMPLISHED SYSTEM
During the 3 Year development period in competition, the Ixon IX-Airbag U03 system has been worn and tested by the best world riders in MotoGP™, EWC (24h of Le Mans & Bol d’Or), BSB and French Superbike; Today the product is approved by IRTA (International Road Racing Team Association).
A larger second phase focused on 500 users: consumers, journalists and dealers were selected during the Airbag Revolution campaign. Since May 2017, more than 1 million kilometers have been ridden across Europe, in very varying conditions.
The «U03» (Universal 3rd generation) represents the third step of the process, with the objective of making it affordable to the widest possible number of people, the most evolved system including the best technology.
This system works thanks to the In&box activation (the brain of the system). Thanks to embedded sensors and algorithms, the In&box analyses the biker’s moves 1000 times a second to detect a fall or a crash and activate the inflation of the airbag before the impact in less than 55 milliseconds.
Continuous data collected allows also optimizing activation strategies, to offer a constantly improved protection level. These updates are transmitted directly to the In&box via Wi-fi during charging for example.
Winner of a CES Innovation Award 2017 category «Wearable technologies» in Las Vegas CES (the biggest world exhibition dedicated to new technologies) the system recently got 5 stars on the French «Classe SRA» rate.
AN ERGONOMIC PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
The In&motion airbag system is integrated in the IXON vest IX-Airbag U03. The vest also includes a CE back protector and is worn under a motorcycle jacket (leather or textile); the system is totally independent (wireless – no sensors on the bike) and benefits from regular optimization of users’ global experiment.
The box has a 20h autonomy. It is removable and very easy to recharge with a mini-USB plug.
In 55 milliseconds, the airbag is deployed to protect: thorax, abdomen, spine, neck and collarbones.
The vest is light, comfortable and ergonomic. Ixon IX-Airbag U03 is worn close to the body, and you totally forget it thanks to the stretch fabric, while the inside in 3D mesh ensures excellent breathability.
Available in 5 sizes: S, M, L, XL, 2XL
APPROVED BY DORNA IN MOTOGP™
IXON GPWORLD program has been focused along with IN&MOTION on Airbag system and Airbag racing suit development through our structure IXON INNOVATIVE RACING LAB with 20 of our world class professional riders.
IXON IX-AIRBAG U03 EXPERIMENTED BY 500 USERS ACROSS EUROPE
The airbag vest is a protective device whose purpose is to reduce quantity and gravity of injuries, by inflating before the impacts suffered by users. The system remains inflated to protect the user during all the crash time. The main benefit of the airbag lies in the absorption but also in the charge breakdown and the maintaining in position. These device abilities allow
protecting users against direct impacts.
- 75% of the serious motorcyclists’ injuries are located on thorax and on abdomen.
- A 2 wheels rider is 20 times more likely to be killed on the road than a driver.
- The vest is CE certified according to expert protocol CRITT (notified body)
- Integrated CE level 1 back protector (according to CE EN 1621-2 standard)
- 65% of the PTW crashes occur on front
TECHNOLOGY EVOLVES, SO DOES YOUR AIRBAG
- DETECT. Thanks to embedded algorithms the smart In&box system analyses the biker’s moves 1000 times a second to detect a fall.
- PROTECT. In less than 55ms, the Ixon IX-Airbag U03 cushion is inflated to protect the most sensitive body areas.
- PERFECT. The In&motion software collects all data to constantly improve and offer an even better and customized protection.
