An optimal protection system for skier

Combining protection, comfort and performance, the In&motion airbag system has been approved by the International Ski Federation (FIS) in autumn 2014 for SkiCross and summer 2015 for Alpine Skiing.

The French Ski Federation (FFS) and the french team athletes in Alpine Skiing and SkiCross accompanied In&motion in the development of its innovation: an airbag vest integrating a certified back protector, that can be worn under a ski suit.  Totally autonomous, the system analyses the skier’s movements in real time and is able to detect a major fall.

The algorithm triggers then the inflation of the airbag, in less than one-tenth of a second, beofre the impact with the ground in order to protect the crucial body areas namely: spine, thorax, abdomen and the hips.

Our ambassadors

« With the new technologies we have now, like airbags, we don't think twice about using them as they mean […] we know we're protected and we can ski with complete confidence. […] Since I started using it, it's become an integral part on my kit and I don't even think about it anymore. »

« All I knew was that I was protected and that I can come out of a massive wipe-out like that unscathed. […] When I came to a halt, I felt I was protected by this big cocoon. So yes, it was pretty reassuring. »

Tessa Worley,
