Motto Vest Raised Funding from Accelerate Prosperity to Boost Biker Safety
Motto Vest, Pakistan’s first Airbag Vest for bikers, has a mission to secure bikers in Pakistan and across the globe. The company has made an advanced form of biker airbag vest that, during accidents, will blow up within a fraction of a second. This vest protects all bike riders from severe injuries like the backbone, neck, shoulders, back, neck, ribs, abdomen, elbows, and knees.
Motto Vest’s airbag vests are created to provide unique protection to bikers without compromising their comfort. The airbag vests are lightweight and weather-resistant. These airbag vests are available in all sizes, S/M/L/XL in various color combinations to match your style and preference.
Motto Vest serves two kinds of airbag vest products, MV-1 and MV-2.
The patented mechanical MV-1 version uses a rope fastened to the bike to detect accidents. The tether detaches and the airbag inflates if the biker is knocked off the bike or falls.
The patent pending MV-2 is an electro-mechanical variant featuring cutting-edge sensors including accelerometers and gyros. In the case of an accident, the airbag rapidly deploys utilizing a compressed CO2 cartridge after detecting the angle and speed of the bike.
Funding from Accelerate Prosperity
Motto Vest has raised funding from Accelerate Prosperity- An AKDN Initiative to endorse and support. Both companies are working together on the initiative of Motto Vest’s airbag vest to take Pakistan out of the disastrous situation. Now Motto Vest has officially become a part of Accelerate Prosperity’s growing portfolio in Pakistan and secured financing.
