GP-Air Airbag Racing Vest by Helite
The airbag racing jacket has been specially developed for the pilots. Attention has been focused on aerodynamics, abrasion resistant materials and an excellent protection at the front/back.
The airbag shape integrated in the vest absorbs impacts and stabilizes the whole upper body from head to tailbone. Front and back body armours for a double TURTLE effect! The results of absorption and distribution of shocks are considerably higher and it protects from intruding objects.
Helite GP-Air airbag vest is 100 % mechanical to avoid unexpected airbag activation and changing batteries.
Abrasion Resistant Materials
Very strong abrasion resistance with leather (cowhide 1,2 mm) + foam to protect the airbag chamber. If damaged, the leather sliders on the back can be easily replaced thanks to the velcro.
Attention has been focused on aerodynamics with a space for the suit’s hump.
Tight body fit with stretchy leather sides. We use a stretchy material on the neck/shoulders to have an optimal protection when the airbag inflates.
You can customize your vest with a quick access to the front and back. Another possibility, the German store Rabatz Racing produces customized leather patches.
Adjustment velcro and stretchy material to fit the GPAir nicely over any suits. We use a red velcro to show the limit to close the GP-Air airbag vest.
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 GP-Air Airbag Vest 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 GP-Air vest comes with a canister and lanyard attached – extra lanyards or canisters can be bought separately.
