Award Winning

There's a reason why our competitors spend so much time watching what we do, we believe in customer service levels beyond the norm and we're always looking for ways to improve. In late 2013 we were recognised for this by the bike industry's No.1 publication, Motorcycle News. As retailer of the year, we feel it's our duty to constantly better our offering and if you have any ideas, we'd love to hear from you!

365 Day Returns

We simply don't believe in making the sale and moving on, we want to make sure our customers are happy with their purchase. That's why we now offer a full 365 day returns period. Simply relax, take your time and make sure it's right! All we ask is that you try the items within your own home and return with the tags intact.

Free UK Delivery

It's really simple, if you spend over £25 with us, delivery is free of charge to any mainland UK address (excluding Islands & Highlands).

60,000+ Reviews

Whilst we know a bit about bikes and bike kit, the best road testers out there are our customers, real bikers, just like you. If you're looking for advice on what to buy, you'll find over 60,000 independent product reviews which we've posted, unedited, for all to see. Whether it's a question about sizing, quality or something else, our customer reviews are quite simply, the best place to start.

Free Returns*

We now offer free returns on any UK Mainland order (excluding Highlands) over £25. Most importantly, returning an item to us is super simple. Just click here or on the 'create a return' link located at the bottom of every page, and create your return in under 1 minute.

Click & Collect

If you can't be around to receive your delivery during the day, just use our click & collect option. We offer delivery to a shop local to you using the DPD Pickup network. Most pick up points are open outside of normal working hours and will keep your package so you can collect at a time to suit you.

Customer Reviews for Helite Turtle 2 Shell Inflatable Air Vest - Black

Helite Turtle 2 Shell Inflatable Air Vest - Black
June 11, 2020

Excellent Air Vest

Great air vest. Comfortable and does not interfere in your ride. The lanyard doesn't trigger the vest if you forget to disconnect. You will notice the tug. The vest feels sturdy and of a good quality and doesn't really reduce air flow to the vents in your jacket on warm summer days. Good value for piece of mind.

High quality item

Quick service and delivery from SBS. Quality of item is first class and easy to adjust for wearing over various riding gear. Hopefully I'll never need it to deploy.

Helite 2 turtle

Hope I never need it but seems well stitched and very robust vest. Sizing was spot on with adjustable straps. Not to bulky and fits well over both summer and winter riding gear. Was concerned it would snag and restrict head movement when worn but it clears helmet and restricts no movement. Came next day delivery and well packaged as expected. Brilliant service from sportsbike shop.

Good product - hopefully

Nice vest easy to set up and comfortable on. The sizing was a bit tricky to judge depending on what gear I'm wearing underneath but there are adjustable straps for this. There's also a really handy pocket to stick your key in. Not truly tested the jacket and hopefully won't have to but offers good protection even for the lower back so helps me feel safe.

Excellent Service

Ordered the new Helite Turtle 2 Vest, arrived. Sadly I chose the wrong size, too small. I raised a return and sent back, there was a delay as their returns dept was very busy, however after a call to advise them that I was going out on a run on Sunday (call was on Friday) guy said hang on, let me see what I can do for you, he came back and told me that he had put my replacement on a Sat delivery. Sat am and my replacement was here, well done Spotsbikeshop, excellent service. As for the new design vest, great quality, I like how they have hidden the air cylinder. The new design is also aesthetically pleasing, love the reflectors on the back.

Light, practical way to mitigate accidents

This airbag is not going to stop you having accidents - spend your money and time on advanced rider testing first. But it should mitigate the effects of you do have an effect. It's really light to the point I forget it's the when riding. It is secured by 3 clips across the front but you should be aware when trying it on that it adjusted bigger than it comes out of the packet but very difficult to make smaller (so try it/measure yourself on on your summer gear). The mechanical attachment strap is pretty fool proof and had the right balance between protection in accidents and preventing inadvertent activation. The shape of it when inflated also serves the role of next brace which makes it more practical than a big lump of plastic. Do not forget to buy at least one spare canister. If it does go off by accident you will need a spare can to get you home.
