Looks a bit phony. That guy is tumbling on purpose cause if he laid back it would have just been a slide on his back.
Interesting idea though.

Of course, looks like he was just demonstrating how it works and how in a brutal high side it may really save a rider. I doubt he is gonna test it while doing a high side..LOL

Oh what's the fun in that, really? :D
Looks like some neck injury could be negated, but the collar bone is the most common injury.

Yeah, where's the teflon bodywork? ;-)

"so...how long have you been driving cycles?" I like that, I thought I was the only one that was bothered by that specific symantic error!

Hmmmmmm... Kinda crazy for sure. Could really be beneficial but that particular crash sequence was pretty low impact. What if the thing sort of just "went off" unexpectedly while in the middle of a turn? Playing Devil's Advocate on that one.

I am all for EVERYTHING that is more safety oriented but I am not sure, at least from that snippet, that the new Dianese suit would do much. We'll see.

Dainese is the one behind this one. They've been working on it a while. I think it was crash tested in race conditions, but it was a few years ago. Not sure if they ever went ahead with it.
