Bodyworn Airbag Protection Specialists

Helite Roadster Men’s Leather Air Jacket


The Leather motorcycle jacket from Helite integrates the Turtle airbag system as the previous vest models so that the jacket looks like an ordinary motorcycle leather jacket. This model is available in brown and black- both offering a stylish final look but with the added bonus or superior protection.

The hidden velcro panel at the neck inflates to effectively protect from whiplash injuries. The elastic mesh under the arms and side will permit the airbag to extend all over the upper body. To avoid overheating the leather jacket also has Free-Air mesh ventilation in the underarms and side panels.

This is the ultimate leather jacket for the fashion and safety conscious motorcyclist!

Fitting Instructions

The jacket should fit exactly the same as any other standard motorcycle jacket as the product is designed to expand outwards on activation.

You may consider upsizing this product by one size as we find the French sizing to come up a little smaller than we are used to here in the UK.

The jacket can be adjusted accordingly using the various velcro straps.


Every air jacket comes with a canister and lanyard attached – extra lanyards, canisters can bought separately.
