Helite Turtle 2 Shell Inflatable Air Vest - High Viz

Safety at affordable prices

Thought about getting an air vest, and after a lot of reading, plumped for this one. Really great piece of kit, keeps you warm and safe. Not sure how it'll feel wearing it in the height of summer though. Quality is high standard, and if unfortunately I do have a spill, very confident this vest will reduce impact. Pleased with this addition to my riding gear.

I have one, now so does my pillion

One of those things you hope NEVER to test! My own is black and 1.5 yesr older. I can see that some improvements were made - pocket for your phone for example. Looks a bit tidier as well with straps being covered. Sizing is pretty spot on, SBS service as always second to none!

As everyone else I hope I would never use this vest for it's primary intention. From what I can tell so far it feels well made, with good protection coverage and fine fit. It adds weight but once on, I do not feel it. I was looking for non-electronic system as I do not want the extra faff with batteries, sensors, bluetooth, apps, subscriptions etc. The lanyard is simple to connect and it is a matter of get to the habit to fasten when jumping on the bike. Unintentional activation is limited by the fact it requires significant force, 30 kg. So even forgetting when dismantling the bike won't make you blow. Even so you can easily reload the airbag by yourself without sending to the manufacture as many other offerings require. So all in all, I am pleased. Pricey item but can you set a cost on your safety? And not least, I received an excellent service from SBS as usual.

Good Product & Investment

Since years I have been riding motorcycle conciously and I have seen few bad accident happened around me. In first place it looks like a furtune but you only need when you really need. Protection on your body is essential.So I have desided to get one... Sportsbikeshop has given a reliable and fast service to get one.

Worth the investment

Available in fluro-yellow or black this is a mechanically operated air vest. The quality and finish is excellent and it comes with a removable back protector pre-installed meaning you can remove the back protectors from your existing jackets when using the Turtle-2. In use the weight of the jacket disappears and I found that it did not inhibit any movement. I am a 44 inch chest ordered the XL which fits fine. The gas canister is housed in a small right hand external chest pocket. there is also a small left hand external chest pocket just big enough for a spare gas canister or other very small items but not big enough for a wallet. As of May 2020 I understand that this is Helite's latest vest. I have used this vest with jackets that have the side pockets that access from the top and from the side and both types of pocket styles can be accessed when using this vest all be it the side access style pockets are more easily accessed. If the vest gas canister is deployed the canister can be replaced yourself and as such the vest is not made redundant after it has been inflated once. The jacket is attached to the bike by way of a flexible lanyard which need quite some force to deploy the gas canister and as such it most unlikely that it could be set off accidently. Great service as usual by SBS.

Feels like a quality item

Airbags have always been out of reach but now prices have dropped as they are becoming more popular. After a fair amount of research I settled on the Turtle 2 having read testimonials and viewed demo videos. The sizing was spot on, you wear it slightly baggy and not tight over your outer jacket. It feels pleasantly heavy walking around but that weight disappears once on the bike. Hopefully I never find out how good it is! It covers your neck all the way down to below your lower back, and at the front covering your ribs. I would never ride without it now I have it. Shouldn't everyone have one? I went with hi-viz but the black one looked good too.

Good investment

Excellent service from Sportsbikeshop. The jacket is good quality. Not too heavy and once on you don't notice your wearing it. Easy to attach to your motorbike. A good investment should the worst happen.
