Wow, 100+ views and no comments, I am surprised.

I looked at the vid. Nice Idea, but not so practical IMO. This device is a 'ring' of sorts worn around the neck. Hot? Bulky? How inflated? Accidental inflations? Shelf life? I don't recall if they actually showed what it would look like with just a jersey. The women riding were wearing large coats and scarves, IIRC, unfettered hair blowing photogenically in the breeze to make their point, I suppose.

Would this air bag helmet survive a puncture sliding across 10 yards of pavement? It is also surely a one use item...tho valuable as that one use would be.

Again, nice effort, but not for me.

The only time you would find that it is not working, for whatever reason, is when you need it most.

No thanks.
