Tucano Urbano AIRSCUD - new airbag motorcycle vest and jacket combo launched

In a partnership with In&motion AIRBAG, we look at the latest in motorcycle style & safety, the Tucano Urbano AIRSCUD airbag vest and jacket.

Tucano Urbano AIRSCUD airbag vest

TUCANO URBANO AIRSCUD is the latest in wearable motorcycle gear with airbag safety from the Italian brand.

Coming as either a vest or jacket (removable sleeves), the AIRSCUD offers riders maximum protection with airbag safety - and can be reset at home by replacing the inflator unit which can be bought separately.

Smart in both senses of the word, the stylish vest and/or jacket from Tucano Urbano makes use of In&motion AIRBAG technology, a French market leader in motor-safety, to constantly improve the airbag deployment algorithms. Constantly monitoring, collecting & analysing riding data from thousands of riders worldwide,  

With a constant appetite for new data, regular monitoring, collecting and analysing riding & deployment data from thousands of riders worldwide means updates can be routinely made to optimise the deployment limits.

Further, varying riding-style plans can be set through the In&motion app (Street mode, Adventure mode, Track mode) to further improve operation in differing riding environments.

Thanks to 7 sensors – 3 accelerometers, 3 gyroscopes and 1 GPS – the detection algorithm measures the parameters of use a thousand times every second and, if necessary, provides the fastest inflation activation in the world - in less than 60 milliseconds - with total coverage of the vital areas: chest, abdomen, neck and spine.

Waterproof and breathable, the AIRSCUD is designed to be worn as a CE cetified vest (Class 3) over or under any outfit (or with the Tucano Urbano AIRSCUD-ready jackets), and can transform into a CE-motorcycle certified jacket in seconds - with sleeves equipped with D3O® T5 EVO X CE – EN 1621 Level 1 CE certified protectors on shoulders and elbows, and a CE EN 1621 - Level 1 back protector in the vest. 

With a little window in the back to keep an eye on the LED lights of the In&motion box (as well as switch it on and off), there are two front pockets for valuables, with sleeve & bicep adjustors for the perfect fit. 

Weighing in at just 2,620 grams as a size-large jacket (1,950 grams as a vest), the exterior has been constructed with a lightweight Taslan polyamide, with 500D Oxford polyamide in the areas most exposed to impact.
