An airbag jacket for motorcyclists - the only jacket you'll need!
The future in protective clothing is in Australia now.
The recently updated Helite motorcycle jacket was designed from the ground up and uses CE certified armours to protect the shoulders, elbows and the spine but most importantly, the Helite jacket also incorporates a CE certified airbag system.
In the event of an accident, when the rider is thrown from the motorcycle, the airbag jacket instantly inflates (within 100 milliseconds) to protect the rider's upper body. The activation is simple and automatic. A coiled wire attaches the motorcycle to the airbag jacket. If the rider is abnormally separated from the motorcycle, the coiled wire triggers the release of cO2 gas to inflate the air cushions. The inflated jacket protects vulnerable parts of the upper body to prevent from serious injuries. After a few seconds the jacket deflates automatically. Once the jacket is deflated, a new cartridge can be installed and the jacket is ready to be reused.
Helite knows it cannot protect a motorcyclist from the worst accident situations like hitting a truck head on at 130 km/hour. However, Helite's objective has been to constantly improve the airbag jacket in order to increase the number of situations from which a motorcyclist can be saved by the airbag. Wearing a Helite Motorcycle airbag jacket puts the odds more in your favour.
According to a European study 48% of the fatal accidents happen in the country and only 8% on the highways. These numbers confirm the importance of airbag jackets for motorcyclists. The garments are very effective in the city and the country, where the speed is not maximal but the dangerous obstacles are numerous.
