The Spine VPD 2.0 Airbag Vest is a high-tech contraption that is designed to keep skiiers safe without compromising on their performance levels -- something that is crucial towards encouraging people to wear them. The vest was developed by French startup In&Motion as part of a special collaboration with Swedish safety accessory manufacturer POC.
Once inflated, this particular airbag safely cushions the neck, chest, spine, abdomen and hips. The most interesting and unique feature here is that the airbag extends protection down to the hips via tentacle-like tubes on the side.
The Spine VPD 2.0 Airbag Vest is perfect for alpine and ski cross racers who want to be safe for obvious reasons, but don't want their airbag vest to affect their performance.
