    We are hearing end of March at the earliest. Alpinestars is doing the best they can to handle the extraordinary demand they are facing right now!

    9 months later and looks like we're all still facing the same shortage. Have you heard any news on when they might be available again?

    And it's particularly strange to me that A* appears to be phasing out the Tech Air Race (i.e. none of the recently launched suits are Tech Air Race compatible), given that no replacement has been announced (assuming Tech Air 5 isn't its replacement).

    The last update we received was a couple weeks ago and they are saying some time in January. We do have some trickle in every so often but it is just kind of random when they show up. I do believe they have some plans for a new version of the vest but have not heard anything official yet.

    Thanks very much for the info!

    I’ll be ready to buy as soon as you get some size xl’s in.

    "You are absolutely correct. Alpinestars is not billing the Tech Air 5 as anything but a street-only vest. If airbag protection on the track is your intent, the Tech Air Race is what you need, not the Tech Air 5.
    Feel free to fire away with any other questions!

    Best,
    Jimmy"


    a couple of conflicting comments upon reading this thread and watching the (tech air 5 vs tech air race) video on your web page. It appears as that the tech air 5 has a "race mode" that can be swapped to from an app. Is this correct? Also, the gent in the video does a great job explaining both air deployment systems and never once says the tech air 5 is not suitable for race track use or is anything but a street only vest. I also notice that the STG webpage does not have the Tech air 5 for sale, or at least that i could find.

    If it is not suitable for track/race why are there certain race suits only compatible the tech air 5? Could you clarify?

    Originally the Tech air 5 was for street use only. They have made updates to it and now it is Used for both street and track with a software update!

    Thanks,
