IN&MOTION’S MISSION? PROTECT.

What does protection mean?
To protect is to work so that the consequences of an accident are reduced and if possible, reduced to zero.
To protect is to allow those who have suffered from an accident to resume their normal course of life with the minimum of impact.
To protect is to ensure that the minutes, the hours, the days after are not different from the days before.
To protect is to ensure that a few days later you can go for your morning jog, get back on your motorbike, kiss your daughter, finish on a podium, go for a golf course, start a new job, finish a stage of the Dakar,…
To protect is to make the days after as easy as the days before.

Since October 2018, thousands of bikers around the world have been equipped with the In&motion airbag system and it is their testimonies that reinforce the meaning of our work: protect to make the days after their accident better. Here are their stories:

 

I was 4 days away from my 63 years. It had been a few months that I had this Airbag jacket, after having had a jacket with which we attach to the motorcycle, and the triggering takes place during the ejection. For some time I have been wondering if it would work in the event of an accident. I got the answer. I was going to a rehearsal with my music band, relaxed and not in a hurry (I don't like being in a hurry on a motorcycle, that's where we make mistakes). At a crossroads in the 11th arrondissement, the car coming towards me opposite, is about to turn on its left in front of me, and I slow down waiting to know what it will do. She stops, too, I think she lets me pass. I accelerate, and the car does the same and turns in front of me: frontal impact, but at low speed, fortunately. I fly away and find myself on the ground. I have sore legs, and no pain above the belt, and I realize that the jacket has tripped. This is my first collision accident. I'm totally hysterical, so glad I didn't have an injury. I am helped to get up because of contusions in the lower limbs. But, what a joy !!! I forget my bike which also had very few injuries too, so much so that I was able to leave with my KTM 1290 adventure S, it is solid. in short, almost a joy to have an accident (yes, I'm exaggerating !!). Thanks In&motion

After a nice ride in the Pilat (42) I was returning quietly to Lyon.
The sun begins to go down. I get off the highway and take the quays, the first traffic light turns red, I brake and stop quietly on the line.
 
5 seconds later I was on the ground with my poor dying strap and my airbag which created like a little cloud to catch me on the ground.
 
BOOM and PAN… the sound of the car hitting me in the back and the sound of the airbag triggering. I who is catapulted forward and who passes over the motorbike on the left (over the 3rd cooooooooorde) for a moment in the air, gravity reminds me of order and puts me on my back on the ground, is where I thought, "OUF" fortunately I have the airbag because the simple little dorsal of the jacket would not have done as much for sure! I feel tight in my clothes ... normal, I take 2 seconds to breathe and I get up. A passing biker stops and gives me a hand and realizes that my airbag was not useless.
 
Once standing I removed the airbag which tightened me a little but which allowed me to get out of it without any scratch and almost without aches!
 
I always advocated the equipment, that day in addition to the airbag I had my helmet, my gloves, but also my motorcycle jacket, my motorcycle pants and my motorcycle boots! Suffice to say that I had put all the chances on my side and that in the end I do not regret!

The fall is classic a small high side at low speed, the airbag has triggered well before the ground, I had to raise the bike just after which is more difficult with the airbag inflated, apart from a feeling of being oppressed but this is due to the after fall but otherwise by relaxing we find a normal breath, we were able to put back a new cartridge, a cleat for the motorcycle is it left for the afternoon!

I was driving on the road and wanting to pass a roundabout at around 50km / h I lost the front on the change of angle on the left side. Sudden fall on the left side between the motorcycle and the sidewalk of the central reservation of the roundabout. Then slide on the ground for about 8 meters. I was able to go back and redo 5km to go home. I was accompanied to the emergency room. Assessment: broken rib and broken fibula head at the ankle with tearing of a ligament. All on the left side. I think the original front tire that I had just reassembled 2 years later was dry and not in temperature. My mistake. Thanks to my Ixon airbag vest which surely limited breakage on the upper body during impact with the sidewalk. My 1290R superduke has almost nothing: rear view left handlebar end clutch lever gear selector and shredded front / rear feet. It was a bad fall despite a fairly low speed.

My name is Carlos I take the motorbike every day to go to work. The day of my accident I returned to my home.
Arrived in the city center, and 2 km from my home, a stopped car, on the side of the track, maneuvered to turn around suddenly, without looking, when I arrived at his level. I could not do anything. I crashed into the left side of the vehicle (between the wing and the door). The impact threw me over the car, I made a sun and I fell on the asphalt like a pancake! Two things I remember, the first is the triggering of the airbag at the very moment of contact with the car and when I barely started to take off from the saddle, and the second the impact of the helmet on the bitumen, and the airbag which cushioned me in the chest. I got up without injury or scratch, it was my helmet which took a big shock and the airbag which protected me all the upper body as well as my equipment gloves, elbow pads, and knee pads which protected me my members.
I had nothing but material damage. Motorcycle irreparable, suddenly I recommended the same ... and I bought another Ixon airbag vest with In & motion technology (reimbursed by insurance!).
Thank you to the whole team for participating in my security!

Cold motorcycle, 1 km after departure, I take a roundabout which I have to do 3/4 of the way. I do not have a precise idea of ​​my speed but it should not exceed 30-40 km / h I think. Between the 1st third and half of the roundabout, being positioned inside (but not on the white line), I feel the bike float a 1st time, then a 2nd time where I lost the front I think and probably the rear at the same time. I slipped / rolled on the left side (inside side of the roundabout therefore), I understood that the airbag had been triggered when I was on the ground. During this time, the motorcycle made 5 meters by sliding on its left side. Friends followed me in the car, saw me on the ground, and helped raise the motorcycle. After going to see on foot, we found that the area where I lost control of the bike is a real rink, oily, and with the humidity it was a real trap. I come out of it with a scratch on my elbow and one on my knee. The helmet did not a priori touch the ground. Damage to the motorbike (see photos): handguard / left turn indicator / grated crankcase protection, folded gear selector, center and side stands rubbed. I was still able to go home after this fall

IT’S BEEN A YEAR NOW …

Since the In & motion airbag system is on the market. During this year, we have had many testimonies but also over and over the same question:

Is it working ?

Finally, the people who are best placed to answer this question are the people who unfortunately had an accident but who, despite this, were able to share with us what they may have experienced afterwards.

The accident itself is not trivial and sometimes marks a starting point, a new way of looking at the bike or, more broadly, a new way of doing things. So we decided to count the cumulative number of days that have passed since the accident of the respondents and …

THIS CUMULATIVE NUMBER OF DAYS IS ALSO A COUNT OF MOMENTS OF LIFE THAT WE WANTED TO SHARE TO THE LARGEST NUMBER.

The motorcycle is an element that brings together enthusiasts, and no matter what relationship people may have with the motorcycle, the faces come alive when we tackle the subject.

This is the reason why we wanted to go further by inviting people who have fallen with our technology to share their feelings and their experiences while keeping an element in mind: the airbag is not an ” invincibility card”.

This is a bonus, but a bonus that can make all the difference when you need it.
