One of the anchoring cables needs to be connected to the frame of the bike (to the saddle) and remains there. In the event of an accident, when the rider falls off the bike or mount the cable will separate from the bike or mount activating the CO2 cartridge to instantly inflate the jacket in approximately 0,1 - 0,3 seconds. The jacket provides extra protection to the most vulnerable parts of the body. When you get off the bike or mount simply unhook the anchoring cable. </p> <div class="szovegkoz_1"></div> <center> <script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script> <!-- nagyteg --> <ins class="adsbygoogle" style="display:inline-block;width:336px;height:280px" data-ad-client="ca-pub-6865508134862548" data-ad-slot="1760616979"></ins> <script> (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); </script> </center> <div class="szovegkoz_1"></div> <h3 class="alcim1">Who invented the airbag jacket?</h3> <p class="szoveg"> The airbag jacket for motorcyclists (horseriders) is a long-standing <a title=" Interview with the real inventor of the airbag jacket" href="interview_with_the_inventor.html">Hungarian invention</a>.

So, more than two decades later the Japanese solution - that was announced as an "invention" - was actually a plagiarism, (Intellectual Property Theft). The Japanese Patent Office committed a serious mistake by not researching <a title="Prior art in most systems of patent law, constitutes all information that has been made available to the public in any form before a given date that might be relevant to a patent's claims of originality.
