The key marble is linked to a security cord. When the pilot is ejected from the motorcycle, the key marble is released and the firing pin pierces the CO2 cartridge by action of the spring's pressure. Over one-tenth of a second, the released CO2 will inflate the air bladder, adding extra protection to the rider. Once the bladder is inflated, it will slowly deflate over a two and a half minute- time period.
Should you be concerned by an accidental deployment of the airbag (when getting off your motorcycle while still attached to the leash), rest assured. A 30 kg (60-pound) pulling force must be applied to the retaining key in order to activate the system, thus limiting accidental inflation of the vest.
