Imagine you're riding your favourite road, cruising at 100kph.  The road's damp from last night's rain but nothing to worry about.   Then all of a sudden a dog runs out of nowhere.  You react quickly but find yourself on the gravel and because of the rain it's now a mudslide and you lose control of the bike and come off at 80 kph.

This is exactly the time you are grateful that you invested in a Helite Airvest!

Helite airbag technology - the future of motorcycling safety gear is now in Australia!  Helite airbag vests re like a helmet for your body!

Airbag protection can save you from serious injury or it might even save your life.  You might have all the usual gear on and not have a scratch on you - BUT you have broken bones because Kevlar and great gear doesn't protect from the impact of hitting something like a guardrail or the ground!

Already have a great riding jacket? No worries as the Helite "Turtle" Airvest is practical, lightweight and discreet and fits over your jacket – you won't even know you have it on. If you ride on the road, off road or on the track and whether you ride a motorcycle ATV or scooter, the vest guarantees premium protection without losing any freedom of movement. And naturally both riders and pillion passengers can benefit

Helite High Viz Airbag advantages:

  • Impact is absorbed by the airbag surface and the energy is dispersed
  • The head strike is delayed and the bran decelerates sooner preventing many traumatic brain injuries
  • The head and vertebrae stay straight in place preventing whiplash injury and hyper-flexion
  • The high viz is really high viz!

The Helite Vest with the new 'Turtle Technology' provides direct protection for your:

  • neck
  • vertebrae
  • thorax
  • hips
  • abdomen
  • tailbone

Plus it provides indirect protection for your:

  • head
  • liver
  • lungs
  • pancreas
  • heart
  • collarbone

It is very airy and free under the arms to make sure it easily fits with the jacket you are wearing.  They are also lightweight and robust

Helite vests and jackets are 100% mechanical to avoid unwanted airbag activation and changing batteries

The cO2 cartridge is the only component that needs to be changed in order to reuse the airbag

When you invest in a Helite vest you get:

  • The latest Helite "Turtle technology" CE Certified airbag that fully inflates in 100ms
  • A CE certified EN1621/2 Knox high end removable back protector
  • One tether for your motorcycle
  • Light, rugged yet easy to use adjustment clips to close the vest (easy to use even with gloves on)
  • One cO2 cartridge. NB this ensures Airbag Deployment in less than 1/100th of a second (100 ms).
  • The vest itself is made from high quality textile to resist abrasion
  • Broadband highly reflective stripe across the back for safer night driving
  • Interior textile 3D mesh to maintain good air circulation
  • Large opening underarm for freedom of movement
