SPARKS — SaferMoto, distributor of one of the most innovative safety products for riders, will be demonstrating its line of lightweight inflatable vests and jackets using protective airbag technology at the Virginia City Grand Prix, April 28-29 in Virginia City.

The annual motorcycle racing event is presented by the Virginia City Motorcycle Club. It attracts 3,000 spectators and close to 1,000 competitors from 13 Western states racing in 23 different classes over the two-day event. owner Alan Cunningham, a competitive motorcycle racer himself, said the Grand Prix is an ideal venue for showing the SaferMoto vests and jackets.

“These products offer a level of protection that can’t be matched by conventional safety gear and armor,” Cunningham said. A cord connects the vest or jacket to the motorcycle, and inflation from a compact replaceable CO2 cartridge is triggered instantly when the rider falls.

Airbag-equipped apparel now is used in more than 30 countries worldwide and has been standard equipment for law enforcement departments including the Tokyo Police. airbag-equipped jackets and vests for all ages are available online and at select West Coast retailers including Big Valley Honda in Reno and Honda Suzuki of Salt Lake. will hold demonstrations of its inflatable vests and jackets in action at the Virginia City Grand Prix exhibitor area at C and Union streets.
