Electronic Airbag Technology On The GP Air Vest And The Turtle 2 Vest.
HELITE will have some fancy new technology available to its customers for 2020. Helite will be adding electronic airbag technology to the GP Air Vest and the Turtle 2 Vest.
This will be a new system offered alongside the mechanically triggered airbag system. The electronically triggered system will be comprised of two different sensors. These sensors will detect the situation the rider is in and then deploy the airbag system when needed.
The first sensor is for impacts and is installed on the motorcycle. It can cause the airbag to deploy even when the rider is at a standstill. The second is a motion sensor that can detect if a rider goes down or if there’s an accident while moving. These two sensors together should help make sure that the vest deploys at the right time.
The vest is reusable. All you need to do is replace the CO2 cartridge and it’s ready for another use. However, you should make sure it has not been damaged in any way when it was deployed.
