The Tech-Air 10 unit is the new model that Alpinestars is focusing on now, and it's a great system. Here's the problem: If you have a prior-generation "Tech-Air Compatible" suit with the electronics integrated inside the suit and the indicator lights on the sleeve, your suits was BUILT to accept the Tech-Air Race vest unit. The newer suits made starting in 2022 are now "Tech-Air Ready" which means the suit has been designed with extra space to accommodate the Tech-Air 10 vest, but the prior "Tech-Air Compatible" suits were not. While you "can" wear a Tech-Air 10 with the prior style of suit, it's not optimal for many people due to the vastly different fit/profile of the different airbag units (Tech-Air 10 is larger). If you have a Tech-Air Compatible suit which fits properly (aka snug) you may very well find there is not room in the suit to fit a Tech-Air 10 vest at all since it will not sit inside the internal cavity that was designed for the slightly smaller Tech-Air Race vest. We've had MANY riders who thought they wanted a Tech-Air 10 until they tried it on at our store in their current suit and realized it wasn't going to work. So if you have a prior style of "Tech-Air Compatible" suit pre-2022, and you're not in the market for a NEW suit along with your new Tech-Air airbag unit, then you may want to snag one of these FINAL Tech-Air Race vests! 

The result of over a decade of development in MotoGP and following on from Alpinestars first-generation racing airbag system and the launch of the ground-breaking Tech-Air Street, this latest version of Alpinestars Tech-Air technology brings full upper body protection to serious track day and performance riders. Sold separately and compatible with all "Tech-Air Compatible" leather suits and jackets from Alpinestars, RS-Taichi and others. The Tech-Air Race is completely self-contained, meaning there are no bike-to-rider set-up configurations required, which ensures the ultimate in convenience, freedom and versatility. When fully inflated, the system's airbag offers critical protection to the back, kidneys, chest and shoulders. Plus, with a simple upgrade the versatile system firmware, the Race system can be configured to run the Tech-Air Street setting for non-race use in road and off-road situations.
