The jacket, on the other hand, is made with a range of durable materials including carbon fibre, flax, copper and sustainable leather. It is operational in three different modes, which give different feedbacks. It has an Urban Mode which alerts the rider of dangers ahead. Sports Mode gives the rider feedback on the bike's dynamic position by taking G-Force related data. Euphoric Mode lets you play music through the haptics.
