The airbag racing jacket has been specially developed for the race track. Attention has been focused on aerodynamics with a perfect fit and a space for the suit’s hump. For more security, the jacket is made up of abrasion resistant materials and with an excellent protection at the front/back for a double TURTLE effect !
An airbag vest designed and tested by the pilots for the pilots !
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.
The Motorbike 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, underneath speedway suits (allowance in the suit should be made for expansion of the air bag) and is also great for ‘every-day’ use.
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.
