The original and classic air vest from HELITE boasts an impressive specification – it’s no wonder it became a defacto standard. Comfortable, lightweight and airy with both black and Hi-Vis available for added visibility that gets you noticed on the road. The vest is designed to be worn over your riding jacket. With significant levels of adjustment available to accommodate the different thicknesses of leathers or textiles, adding in or removing your winter liner is no problem. Velcro bands enable vest adjustment to be done quickly, ensuring a great fit. The vest is CE certified and has a removable KNOX EN1621/2 back protector providing protection to the neck, spine, pelvis and vital organs.
