At last a stylish, and safe motorcycle jacket for women. Impeccably combining style with safety, the Helite XENA is unique in the market. Selected quality hides are combined with class leading airbag technology to create a single garment that you will cherish, and in return will cherish you. Stretch panels are cleverly integrated into the design together with a removable burgundy lining for additional warmth. Outstanding in every way.
Can I wear the Xena leather jacket when it is raining?
The Xena leather jacket is high-quality and can be worn when it is raining. However, it was not designed to be waterproof, so we can’t guarantee that you will stay dry under a heavy rain.
How can I maintain the Xena leather jacket?
Like every leather jacket, maintenance is necessary to keep its flexibility and colour. We recommend using a quality leather care product regularly. Please do not wash the jacket with a washing machine or with cleaning supplies, or damage may occur.
Can I wear a backpack over a Helite airbag system?
Yes, while keeping in mind that the more resistance there is, the slower the airbag will deploy properly. We recommend only light rucksacks are worn and adjust your backpack straps fairly wide.
How long will it take for my airbag to deflate?
Your airbag must stay inflated to support and protect the rider long enough. It will take 5-7 minutes for the airbag to deflate completely. If you unscrew and remove the canister, the airbag will deflate quickly.
Can the airbag activate itself automatically? What if I forget to detach myself?
Helite airbags are mechanical to avoid unexpected airbag activation. Accidental deployments are extremely rare. The tractive force required to activate the airbag is between 20 and 30 kg depending on the size. If a rider forgets to detach from her bike, he will feel a strong tension from the lanyard before the airbag is triggered. As with a seat belt, clipping and unclipping the lanyard will soon become a habit.
What about fitting?
Height, Chest and Hip measurements are described in each size variation. As the airbag trigger requires between 20 and 30 kg to trigger, you must not wear a Helite airbag if you weigh less than 35kg.
You can simply use the scrolling chart below and make your selection. HELITE XENA Airbag Jackets are fitting just like a regular bike jacket, so all sizes are taken wearing a T-Shirt.
Follow the guidance below.
