The Helite GP-Air Racing Airbag Vest was designed specifically for riders, with special attention paid to the aerodynamics, abrasion resistant materials and an excellent protection at the front/back for track and race use.
The airbag shape integrated in the vest absorbs impacts and stabilises the whole upper body from head to tailbone. Front and back body armour offers double TURTLE effect! The results of absorption and distribution of shocks are considerably higher and it protects from intruding objects.
Helite GP-Air airbag vest is also 100 per cent mechanical to avoid unexpected airbag activation and changing batteries.
Very strong abrasion resistance is offered with leather (cowhide 1.2 mm) alongside foam to protect the airbag chamber. If damaged, the leather sliders on the back can be easily replaced thanks to the velcro.
Attention has been focused on aerodynamics with a space for most rider’s suit hump, while a tight body fit includes stretchy leather sides. Stretchy material on the neck/shoulders ensures optimal protection when the airbag inflates.
You can further customise your vest with a quick access to the front and back, or another possibility is the German store Rabatz Racing produces customised leather patches.
Adjustment via velcro and flexible material fits the GP-Air nicely over any suit. Red velcro is used to show the limit on close the GP-Air airbag vest, for proper fitment. The Helite GP-Air Racing vest is available for $1,275.00 RRP in sizes Small through to XLL. For more more information or to order check out the Helite Australia website (link).
