What kind of safety features do the suits have?
The airbag is the main feature. It’s a system that’s built into the Moto GP suits. The airbag relies on a sensor that is as big as your phone. It’s basically a piece of hardware that is filled with accelerometers and gyroscopes, connected to software that runs an algorithm containing all the data from the rider’s previous season. So if there is an incident, it will calculate whether or not to deploy the airbag. The air bag instantly fills the suit with air, turning the rider into the human equivalent of the Michelin man.
Which services do you offer during a race weekend? Can you repair damaged suits?
During race weekends we can make small adjustments to suits, and we have professional drying systems to dry the suits. For instance, if a rider is recovering from an injury and his arm is still a bit swollen, we can make some adjustments to the suit so he’ll be more comfortable. But once a suit has been involved in a crash, it’s ready for the museum and can’t be repaired. That would also be irresponsible for safety reasons.
