The Helite system has been tested by independent labs, universities, and certification authorities. The system has consistently emerged as the best performing personal airbag available. With deployment times under 100ms, Helite protects quicker than any other mechanically triggered airbag.
June 14 was my first big track day of 2018 and I went out the first session on my Yamaha R3... well it was also my first time wearing my Helite air vest. I mounted my 360 camera to my rear license plate and half way through the session I decided to come into the pits and check to make sure the camera was still on the bike. When I got off, I forgot that I was tethered to the bike... so I found out the vest does exactly what it is supposed to do, which is deploy the moment you get away from the bike. I show it a couple of times in slow motion at the end of this video as well. Fortunately, I didn't repeat this the rest of the day.
Forgot to Unplug, so Accidently Deployed 1:15 minutes
For the highest level of safety for any motorcyclists Helite introduces the Helite GP Air Airbag Track Vest. Practical, lightweight and discreet with an all new aerodynamic design and flexible fit, the GP Air Track Vest has been specially developed for the race track.
While continuing to protect any rider wearing it from serious injury, the design of the GP Air focuses on aerodynamic design while making space for your suit's hump. This vest guarantees the most optimum protection without sacrificing comfort. The airbag system boasts full protection when deployed covering your back, neck, spine, chest, ribs, pelvis, head, pancreas, liver, lungs, etc. with full inflation time under 80-milliseconds. That makes it the fastest mechanically triggered airbag system on the planet.
The GP Air Track Vest utilizes Helite's patented TURTLE technology with one exception: TURTLE effect has been DOUBLED! Not only does the back of the vest have protective armor. The front of the GP Air has integrated body armor as well! This means an even higher level of protection than ever before.
