Hit Air vests seems to be the most popular with track riders. Reasonable price and and just repacking and a new cartridge puts it back in service after activation, if it is not holed.

They are not very sophisticated, just a lanyard that gets pulled when you come off the bike, but seem to activate at the right time.

Plenty of good real life reports.

Hit Air seems to be the best bang for the buck in that dept and can be purchased trackside at NJMP. Justin from Trackside Parts Club is who I got mine from.
