KTM have announced the release of two new riding jackets, fitted with airbags. The jackets, made in partnership with Alpinestars, are the first airbag jackets to not require a system to be fitted to the riders bike. 

Named the Managua GTX Tech-Air and Durban GTX Tech-Air, the jackets are fully breathable, waterproof and windproof thanks to the outer material being made of Gore-Tex. 

The Durban GTX is designed for light offroad riding as well as the street, with features including a micro-fleece removable lining, zippered air intakes and storage space for a 2 litre bladder hydration system. 

The KTM designed airbag system is like nothing else on the market. The airbags are easily armed with the closing of a zip. They're fully removable and they activate in 25 milliseconds keeping the rider protected when they need it most. 

All of these highlight features are summarized in the official product video:


The jackets are expected to be available to buy in early 2019. For information about the jackets and the rest of KTM's extensive Power Wear and Power Parts range, visit our showroom, browse online or give our team a call on +44 (0) 1684 292929.
