It's a beautiful day so you're out on your bike riding through the local countryside - a great day, until .......
A roo comes out of nowhere!!
BANG - you're on the ground thinking to yourself, what the hell just happened!
It happened so fast you didn't have time to think.
This is the moment you realise you feel a tightness around your chest and realise that your Helite Roadster Leather Jacket has saved you - the airbag worked!
You hesitated before buying the jacket but now realise what a wise purchase it is.
(By the way, the above is a real life event with a Moto Smart customer. The roo died, my customer got up, dusted himself off and called for help because the bike wasn't ridable BUT he was was fine!).
The Helite Roadster leather airbag jacket is the motorcycle jacket that has it all and it's now available in Australia.
The highest level of safety without sacrificing style. This 100% full-grain Italian cowhide jacket is equipped with Helite's revolutionary airbag technology, which absorbs the impact endured by a rider's upper body and ensures effective dispersion of energy and force.
When activated, the patented design of the airbag offers rigid support for the head and neck to reduce the risk of a traumatic brain injury - and it activates in 100ms! The head and spine will stay fixed in a natural upright position so that neck vertebras cannot be injured by hyperflexion.
The black or brown Roadster leather jacket is also equipped with a SAS-TEC back protector which acts like a turtle hard shell. The result is increased protection against small objects and full dispersement of force across the surface of the back protector. The airbag itself is expertly integrated into the jacket to create a streamline look.
As far as comfort is concerned, the jacket features a soft collar neck, adjustable waist circumference, and adequate airflow because of the FreeAir mesh ventilation system in armpits and side panels. The Helite Leather Airbag Jacket is perfect for those safety conscious riders with a passion for fashion and style. Each jacket comes with a 60CC CO2 cartridge and a motorcycle tether for bike attachment.
