The airbag system installed into the vest protects the rider's back and vital organs thanks to a patented bag. The bag is made of microfilaments that ensure maximum shock absorption.
The protection afforded is equivalent to that of 7 back protectors. Moreover, it covers a larger area yet takes up less space than a back protector.
The control unit is equipped with 7 sensors monitoring and processing data 1,000 times per second.
The algorithm controls activation of the airbag in the event of a slide, fall, impact with an object or other vehicle, or rear-end collision (even in the event of an impact with a stationary vehicle, like when stopping at intersections).
The user interface consists of a multi-color LED located on the chest. The displayed colors are red, yellow, green and blue.
Before using the product, it must be registered and the system must be activated at the address www.ducati.com/ww/en/smartjacket.
If you buy the Smart Jacket from a Ducati dealer, the dealer will take care of the registration.
Without the activation and the registration, needed to notify any update, the system will not work.
