HELITE TURTLE v1 revolutionised body worn airbag protection.
£499.00 – £549.00
This product (now replaced by the TURTLE 2) rapidly became the defacto standard for quality and safety. Hard on the outside, soft on the inside. Turtle Technology revolutionised air jacket safety by placing a cushioning cage between the tough CE certified EN1621/2 back protector and the rider. Whether you ride in the city or in the country, street furniture, kerbs, street lighting and fencing all present a serious impact hazard. HELITE’s TURTLE design fully disperses impact across the airbag surface and the airbag itself forms a protective cage around the chest, ribs and vital organs. There is significant improvement in protection against small, sharp, protruding objects and motorcycle parts.
This airbag vest feels airy and free under the arms adapting easily to whichever style of jacket you wear; it has easily adjustable fastenings to ensure the perfect fit every time. This model remains available in Hi Vis, some sizes in black remain in stock
