In the world of motorcycle apparel, the quest for combining style with safety is an ongoing challenge. Mo’cycle has stepped up to this challenge with its innovative Airbag Jeans, designed to offer unparalleled lower body protection without compromising on fashion. This piece delves into the features, technology, and pricing of Mo’cycle Airbag Jeans, aiming to provide riders with all the necessary information about this protective gear.

Unique two-piece system

Mo’cycle Airbag Jeans are distinguished by their unique two-piece system, comprising the jeans and a separate airbag module that can be zipped together. This innovative design not only enhances protection by allowing the jeans to slide over the airbag during impact—thereby reducing force through friction—but also offers flexibility and convenience to the wearer. The jeans are equipped with Knox Micro-Lock impact knee protectors, renowned for their ability to remain comfortably soft during movement and become solid upon impact, providing optimal knee protection.

Advanced airbag technology

The core of Mo’cycle Airbag Jeans is its advanced airbag technology, designed to shield key areas such as the tailbone, femoral artery, and thighs—parts of the body that are most at risk during motorcycle accidents. The airbag system is meticulously engineered to deploy within 100 to 150 milliseconds upon activation, offering rapid response protection. The activation mechanism is akin to a ‘dead-man’s-switch’ tethered to the motorcycle, designed to inflate the airbag only when the rider is physically separated from the bike with a force of approximately 40 kg (88 lbs), preventing accidental deployment.

Versatility and maintenance

Mo’cycle has designed its Airbag Jeans for versatility and ease of maintenance. The universal Airbag Module is detachable for machine washing or casual wear, and is compatible across all Mo’cycle Jeans styles. This means riders can switch between different designs or levels of protection without needing to purchase additional airbag modules. The jeans come with two CO2 cartridges for EU/US orders, facilitating easy recharge of the airbag system by the rider themselves, ensuring the jeans are always ready for the next ride.

Safety certifications and durability

The jeans are crafted from CE approved Armalith® denim, a material known for its durability and resistance to UV rays and moisture, ensuring the jeans can withstand all riding conditions. Moreover, the design incorporates safety measures to ensure that forgetting to detach the tether before walking away does not lead to accidental airbag deployment, highlighting Mo’cycle’s attention to practical details and rider convenience.

Mo’cycle Airbag Jeans come in various styles to suit different tastes and requirements. The AVA – Women’s Airbag Jeans are priced at 699 € (about $759), while the PATRICK – Airbag Jeans are available for up to 799 € (about $867).
