HELITE TECHNOLOGY :
Helite was the first manufacturer who developed this airbag system which offers a complete protection of the vital parts: neck, back, pelvis, sacrum, thorax. The unique shape of HELITE airbag offers a big gas volume for an optimal pressure to absorb shocks effectively. The inflation time is very fast (100 ms) to be optimally protected before ground impact. Helite airbags are mechanical systems, ready and easy to use and reusable after a fall.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE ZIP'IN AIRBAG
On the contrary of the Zip'In 1 which must not be worn alone, it is possible to wear the airbag alone since the airbag is provided with a central zip. However, we recommend wearing it most of the time under an approved outer to avoid damage to the airbag in the event of a fall.
You must only wear the Zip'In airbag under approved outers. Not approved outers may not be able to withstand the inflation and may not protect you properly.
