Bümer Bäg: Giant Loop Launches Soft Luggage Airbag System

Deploys on impact to instantly protect riders, or use as a floatation device.

Published on 04.01.2021

After a decade of research, development and testing, Giant Loop is proud to introduce the world’s first integrated safety air bag system for motorcycles, the Bümer Bäg™. This first-of-its-kind air armor system integrates with Giant Loop’s soft luggage, deploying on impact to instantly bubble wrap riders in ballistic bounce proof protection.

For slower speed off-road riding, electronic lean-angle sensors inflate the adventure air bags to cushion against rocks and logs and to break falls from moderately sized cliffs. In the event of deep water crossings, the Bümer Bäg can be manually deployed as a floatation device for bike and rider.

“We were able to source air bag components directly from automotive industry supplier Takata in Japan,” explains Giant Loop’s chief safety officer, Winn Baggs. “This space age technology is finally being made available to powersports manufacturers.”

To shave pounds and expense, the Bümer Bäg can be recharged with off-the-shelf CO2 cartridges from motorcycle tire repair kits. It is also compatible with tubeless tire plugs for easy repairs.



Perfect for pavement pounders and ground grinders who like to catch giant air, the Giant Loop Bümer Bäg (GL part # BBRAP21) weighs just 98.4 lbs with all included components. USA MSRP is $99.99.

You almost had me fooled until I realized the price (99.99) and what day it was…

I could really use the flotation feature. And such a reasonable price! Why, you’d almost think this was some kind of joke.

There are rumors that version 2.0 with helium is in the works for hovering over those challenging sections.

Having just managed to break 13 bones in a get off, I would actually have liked to have this system. 😉
