Impact and abrasion protection in motorcycle gear and what that means for new riders when they pick up some protective riding gear.

Armor is steadily improving and the lessons learned from new automated robotics and nanotechnology will further improve the technology exponentially. Even filtration will be of careful consideration with the resurgence of pandemics such as Covid19.

Airbags are now available to motorcycle riders!

EVERYONE should be researching armor and filtration technology and apply the best tech to your particular applications. From Mountain climbing, to motorcycling and from war to pandemics; you have the ability to effect the outcome of your interactions with negative environments and deadly forces. We are entering a new time in human evolution. Get ready! Evolve!!!
