Accident detection

In case of a fall or accident, the equestrian rider or motorcyclist will be ejected from the horse or motorcycle. The lanyard will then detach from the vest or jacket and cause the airbag to inflate.

Airbag inflation

  1. The airbag system is attached to the lanyard, which is on the motorcycle or riding saddle.
  2. When the equestrian rider or motorcyclist is ejected, the lanyard (from the motorcycle or riding saddle) is released and the airbag inflates immediately.

Inflation time: Very fast in less than 100 ms (faster than the blink of an eye) before ground impact.

Airbag protection

Helite airbags ensure optimal pressure and a big protection volume during inflation (between 17L and 28L depending on the size of the airbag). The unique shape of the airbag covers all vital areas of the body: thorax, abdomen, neck, back, hip and prevents serious injuries.
