The TURTLE effect absorbs the impact 4 times better than a traditional airbag.
The TURTLE technology consists of adding a rigid back protection. Like a turtle shell, this technology offers a significant improvement in protection with better energy absorption and impact distribution.
Optimal back protection
SAS Tech level 2
- Better force distribution
- Reduces the risk of airbag abrasion
- Protects from sharp objects
- Very fast inflation
How it works:
The Turtle technology consists in adding a rigid SAS tec level 2 back protector on top of the airbag, which brings a clear improvement in terms of protection.
As with the motorcycle helmet, the combination of rigid back protector (hard) and airbag (soft) allows the forces to be distributed over the entire surface of the airbag and not just at one point. By diffusing the force of the impact, the impact is limited.
Distribution of the impact
Tests carried out by the CRITT (independent test laboratory) have shown that the impact is 4 times better absorbed than with a traditional airbag. It distributes the impact forces over the entire surface of the airbag.
Optimal protection: Reduced risk of intrusion and abrasion
Rigid protection provides additional protection:
- It protects a larger part of the back
- It resists better against sharp, cutting and intrusive objects.
- It reduces the risk of airbag abrasion.
Pressure and big protection volume
Helite protection provides excellent protection of vital areas with a big protection volume between 17 and 28 L depending on the size of the airbag for optimal pressure.
