Helite airbag vests are like a helmet for your body and represent the future of motorcycle safety gear. Helite’s patented “Turtle” airbag protection can save you from serious injury and it might even save your life.
If you’ve already got a great riding jacket, that you don’t want to give up, that’s not a worry as the Helite “Turtle 2” Airvest is practical, lightweight and discreet and fits over your jacket. The vest guarantees premium protection without losing any freedom of movement.
Helite vests and jackets are also 100 per cent mechanical to avoid unwanted air-bag activation and changing batteries.
Helite Turtle 2 Air-bags include the brand’s patented design with an air-bag each side connected with a CE2 approved backplate that ensures the impact is absorbed and the energy dispersed.
A head strike is delayed and the brain decelerates sooner preventing many traumatic brain injuries, while the head and vertebrae stay straight in place preventing whiplash injury and hyper-flexion. Big reflective stripes also boost visibility. Once activated, replacing the cartridge just requires a new cartridge and with the help of an allen key it can be done in minutes.
The Turtle 2 provides direct protection for your neck, vertebrae, thorax, hips, abdomen and tailbone. Indirect protection includes to your head, liver, lungs, pancreas, heart and collarbone.
