Customer Reviews for Helite Inflatable Air Vest - Black

Helite Inflatable Air Vest - Black
May 15, 2017

Worth the money

Well made and robust. I have not tested it in a real-life situation - yet. Got it because like a good helmet seems a good investment, particularly if you commute into a city (esp London). The setup is easy and the lanyard has some give in it, so won't deploy if you forget to detach it when getting off. OK, might seem overkill to some, but protects all your vital organs and your neck & spine. The idea is not to wearing it tight - to allow it to inflate. Also allows air on warmer days to circulate a bit. Use it mainly for commuting and long journeys. (Bought from Sportsbikeshop as email to main distributor went unanswered.) As usual SportsBikeShop replied to query within a day. So, if you have a good jacket and trouser, hemet, gloves etc - this is the next logical step. Got the black because it could bring myself to wear lollypop lady hi-viz.

Helite was founded in 2001 by Gerard Thevenot, one of the French pioneer and entrepreneurs in the light aircraft industry. His thirst for invention and conscience for safety has pushed him into creating Helite. First created to develop more safety in the light aircraft sector, Gerard rapidly understood the crucial need for more security in all types of applications. Now readily available in the motorcycle market, Helite products are used by all French emergency service bike riders and some counties within the UK.

Questions and Answers

Questions and Answers

  • Hi, can you remove the Helite back protector? Will it still work as an air bag vest? Due to severe scaring and nerve pain I have to wear a force field chest and back protector, not for protection, but to stop my clothing rubbing on my painful scars. So can I use the Helite vest without itâ s back protector and still get the benefits? Thanks.

    October 1, 2018

    Helite have confirmed that the back protector is removable, with no detriment to the integrity or operation of the Air Vest.

  • Do you have these jackets or vests in children's sizes pls?

    January 23, 2018

    The sizes are measured in height and waist size in riding attire - the smallest size is suitable for a height of 5ft with a waist size of 35 inches. Unfortunately there is no specific childrens sizes.
