The Equestrian Air Shell Range by Helite combines safety, comfort and style. The technical ‘Tekseries’ fabric is windproof, shower-proof and the stretch allows for outward expansion. The gilet is frequently used as a comfortable option for children, for breaking in young horses, out hunting or hacking and just generally a great option for ‘every-day’ use. The Gilet has been approved by British Dressage and British Showjumping for use in the ring as well as by British Eventing for use in the showjumping and dressage phases of competition. The gilet is approved for use only when worn over your standard show jacket.
What sets the Air Shell gilet apart from other air vests or jackets on the market is that the outer ‘shells’ are interchangeable. The gilet has a unique ‘zip-out air bag system – you can swap the gilet outer for a different colour or style depending on the weather, your mood or how you want to look. The interchangeable outers are also washable (30° in a standard washing machine) which means you can keep them looking smart and stylish all the time.
This Product includes the full Air Shell Air bag system and 1 interchangeable outer of your choice.
Helite Turtle Technology is the latest air jacket innovation – Helite have successfully revolutionized safety protection levels for motorcyclists.
The unique feature of the Turtle Airvest is that the CE certified EN1621/2 back protector has been placed on the outside of the air bag – a shock resistant outer material which acts like a turtle shell. It has a similar design to a helmet – a hard layer on the outside with soft material on the inside.
This results in a resistance to puncture forces and full dispersion across the airbag surface. The improvements are VERY significant in respect of protecting against small, sharp, protruding objects – ideal for when you are out on the X-country course.
