Touring 2 Airbag Jacket by Helite
The recently improved and updated design of the Helite motorcycle adventure jacket was designed from the ground up and uses CE certified armours to protect the shoulders, elbows and the spine but most importantly, the Helite jacket also incorporates a CE certified airbag system.
In the event of an accident, when the rider is thrown from the motorcycle, the airbag jacket instantly inflates (within 100 milliseconds) to protect the rider's upper body. The activation is simple and automatic. A coiled wire attaches the motorcycle to the airbag jacket. If the rider is abnormally separated from the motorcycle, the coiled wire triggers the release of cO2 gas to inflate the air cushions.
The inflated jacket protects vulnerable parts of the upper body to prevent from serious injuries. After a few seconds the jacket deflates automatically. Once the jacket is deflated, a new cartridge can be installed and the jacket is ready to be reused.
Helite knows it cannot protect a motorcyclist from the worst accident situations like hitting a truck head on at 130 km/hour. However, Helite's objective has been to constantly improve the airbag jacket in order to increase the number of situations from which a motorcyclist can be saved by the airbag.
The Touring 2 jacket Helite is an amazing jacket that will stand in all weather condition (Windproof / waterproof) and provide you the best protection. It has a removable central liner to suit better every season. The jacket has many pocket option so that you can have a hand on everything you bring along.
The size of the CO2 canister is proportional to the size of the airbag. The canister is the only component
that needs to be replaced after inflation of your air vest.
An additional protective PVC Plate and foam is placed
behind the canister so that it cannot injure the rider.
The Touring 2 Airbag Jacket should fit exactly the same as any other Helite Airbag 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 Australia. The jacket can be adjusted accordingly using the various velcro straps.
Every Touring 2 airbag jacket comes with a canister and lanyard attached – extra lanyards or canisters can be bought separately.
