AIROH AND AUTOLIV: A COLLABORATION TO STUDY AND DEVELOP OF THE WORLD’S FIRST MOTORCYCLE HELMET CONCEPT WITH INTEGRATED AIRBAG.
AIROH reveals an all-new motorcycle helmet concept at EICMA 2022. The latest innovation of the AIROH R&D department is inspired by the work of the young engineer Roberta Descrovi and realized in collaboration with Autoliv (ALV), the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems. This innovation is the world’s first motorcycle helmet concept with an integrated airbag for enhanced head protection and is likely to redefine the perception of helmet safety in the motorcycle industry.
For over two years, our R&D dept, and Autoliv, have conducted a pre-study to define how a motorcycle helmet could be designed with an integrated airbag without critically compromising the design, weight or comfort of a helmet designed with integrated airbag technology.
The target is clear: to create a helmet concept that will substantially improve the safety of riders.
The pre-study testing shows, by combining the two energy absorbing technologies (helmet and airbag), the linear head acceleration and hence injuries risk can be reduced substantially.
This is an absolute novelty in the field of motorcycle helmets and we are extremely proud of the result already achieved, even if it is still in the development phase.
The prototype will be presented, as an absolute novelty in the motorcycle sector, at EICMA 2022.
