Benefits Of Wearing a Bsafe Cycling Vest

Just in case you slept in through those dark and frosty mornings. On the off-chance that you’ve missed the early setting of the sun. In case you were oblivious to your rising heating bills… Winter is well and truly here. For commuter cyclists, the winter offers us a plethora of opportunities. We can pedal our way to work while enjoying some beautiful frost coated vistas. We can feel like a human steam train as our breath puffs out in little clouds that we leave in our wake. We can enjoy a sense of freedom that our fellow road users in cars rarely get to enjoy on winter roads. Read more

New Cartridge Size for Helite ROADSTER and CUSTOM models

As part of the continuous improvement of our Helite airbags, we changed the capacity of the cartridges concerning 3XL and 4XL sizes of our ROADSTER and CUSTOM models.

We inform you that you these updated products will be on the website in the next few weeks.

Why are we changing the capacity of the cartridges concerning 3XL and 4XL sizes of our ROADSTER and CUSTOM?

Helite has a policy of continuous improvement of its products, especially on the airbag protection. Our textile engineer managed to increase the time of inflation by improving the shape of the airbag concerning the 3XL and 4XL sizes for the Roadster and Custom models, which provides a better protection for the user. We can’t keep a 100CC cartridge because of the volume of the CO2 gas which is not adapted for the airbag (too high pressure compared with the new shape). So for these two sizes, we move from a 100cc cartridge to a 60cc cartridge.

How can I know which cartridge I have to use?

You can check easily the size of your cartridge thanks to the label located inside your vest/jacket right next to the cartridge.
For information, the modification regarding the capacity of the cartridge for the 3XL and 4XL sizes begins from the serial numbers below :

  • ROADSTER (black & vintage) -> SE/RS/XXXC or SE/RS/18XXXX
  • CUSTOM -> SE/CT/XXXC or SE/CT/18XXXX

What will happen if a customer uses the wrong cartridge?

  • If you use a 100CC cartridge instead of a 60CC cartridge: in case of inflation the pressure will be too high and you will have a feeling of compression, nevertheless you will be protected.
  • If you use a 60CC cartridge instead of a 100CC cartridge: in case of inflation, the pressure won’t be sufficient and you will be less protected.

We are sorry to impose this change, but we believe that increasing the level of protection is our priority.

Festival of Speed – The Silver Jubilee

The 2018 Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard theme will celebrate the event’s 25th anniversary: “Festival of Speed – The Silver Jubilee”. The first Festival, in June 1993, redefined what a car event could be, and, in the years since, it has firmly established itself as the world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture. Now, to mark the Silver Jubilee, the Duke of Richmond (formerly Lord March) will choose his 25 favourite moments from the first 25 events – personal highlights which, in very different ways, have been landmarks in the Festival’s history. These moments, and the cars and drivers which created them, will be cornerstones of this year’s event, alongside the usual gathering of extraordinary vehicles from the dawn of motoring to the present day and beyond.
