My name is Mike and I will be your representative for HELITE on this forum. We are very excited to be on the S1000 RR forum and look forward to answering your questions and concerns regarding our Motorcycle AirBags. Below is a brief description of the options we offer and we will go into detail for each on upcoming threads.

HELITE offers a wide variety of options to choose from that suits your riding style and fashion preference all with the goal of safety in mind. All of our models offer the biggest protection volume on the market. The unique shape of the airbag absorbs shocks and stabilizes the body from head to tailbone.

Currently offered as a mechanical system which is extremely reliable and easy to use. You simply attach the airbag unit to the motorcycle using the supplied lanyard. The airbag inflates when the lanyard is pulled off. We will have an electronic version of certain models soon so be sure to keep an eye out for those if you would rather have an electronic option.

All of our jackets and vest are equipped with our TURTLE technology. This design results in the absorption and distribution of shocks while at the same time protecting you from intruding objects.

They are also reusable, and the system can be reactivated in a couple of minutes by yourself. Simply change the cartridge and you are protected once again.

HELITE Turtle 2 Airbag Vest

Our most popular option is the Turtle 2 Airbag Vest. These are offered in Hi-Viz Yellow and Black. Very clean looking and functional. The cartridge is not visible and is equipped with a convenient and useful extra pocket. The Turtle 2 vest is meant to be worn over your existing riding gear.

Both include Retro Reflective Stripes for night visibility.

@z00 Thanks for reaching out. We are tentatively looking at sometime in early September. A lot can happen in between, but everything is on schedule for that time. Due to different governing bodies in the EU and US, we had to go through the approval process with the FCC before we could release it here, and that added additional time.

If you're interested in one I can send you a questionnaire to fill out and we can then add you to the list to receive the first batch. Just shoot me an email to [email protected]. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and will be in touch soon.
