EXCEPTIONAL LEVELS OF QUALITY PROTECTION IN OFFROAD RIDING

Do you need the best protection available in the offroad section of motorsports?

 

The feedback from professional riders who used our airbag system in the 2021 and 2022 Dakar Rallies has enabled us to develop an airbag that meets the demands of the riders and the extreme conditions.

 

We are proud to participate in this challenge and equip these courageous riders to reinforce our commitment to protecting motorcyclists, whatever their activity!

 

This special product makes extremely high level 14L airbag protection available for the athletes riding in offroad sections while providing freedom of movement on the bike and a comfortable, lightweight fit.

 

The integrated "Kenny Racing" level 2 chest protector with a back protector will take and evenly distribute any impact forces from the front, back or sides and transfer them to the underlaying 14L Helite airbag system which will greatly absorb the impact forces at least between approx. 50% or more.

 

A POWERFUL ALGORITHM

The waistcoat uses electronic airbag technology developed by Helite.

The “Off Road” detection mode was specially developed for Dakar. Indeed, in this mythical race, the conditions are extreme and unique, so we had to adapt to offer a tailor-made detection.

The electronic card has been positioned on the backrest to follow the rider’s movements in real-time, analyse the situation and detect the fall as quickly as possible to activate the airbag inflation.

 

  • Volume of protection: 14L
  • Ultra-fast inflation: in 80 ms
  • Protection of vital parts: cervical, thorax, abdomen, back and spine
  • TURTLE technology: reinforced back protection and better distribution of impact force.

 

PASSIVE PROTECTIONS

Helite has chosen to integrate high-quality passive protections to increase the safety of the pilots as much as possible and thus preserve vital areas.

 

  • PectoraleKenny (Pare Pierres Mission): EN 1621-3 level 2
  • SAS-TEC backbone: level 1
  • SAS-TEC elbow and shoulder protection: level 2

 

A SPARE CARTRIDGE

The Off-Road airbag waistcoat is equipped with 2 independent cartridges. This remarkable innovation will allow riders not to have to change the cartridge after the first inflation and immediately start racing again without losing time.

The electronic system of this off-road airbag automatically switches between empty and full cartridges.

When both cartridges are empty, the airbag indicates this via a light and sound signal. The rider must replace the cartridges in a simple procedure that only takes a few minutes.

 

ERGONOMIC DESIGN

The extreme conditions of the Dakar make comfort a priority for this “off-road” airbag waistcoat! The riders will be riding for hours with considerable temperature variations.

The airbag waistcoat, which is worn under the pilot’s jacket, has therefore been designed to meet their requirements:

  • A breathable, ultra-resistant, elastic technical fabric that adapts perfectly to their morphology and stretches when inflated.
  • A very light airbag waistcoat, weight distribution
  • Removable sleeves
  • A pocket on the back for a water bag

 

 

A REMOTE BUTTON

Our R&D team has developed a remote button on the front of the Off-Road waistcoat that allows the airbag to be turned on/off and its operational status to be checked. An improvement that simplifies its use and reassures riders.

  • ON/OFF button
  • Battery level
  • Airbag operating status
