Airnest Vest

There are over 45,000 of Helites Airnest Vest in use during eventing and other disciplines but also when training. Hundreds of professionals and beginners who suffered accidents have been able to confirm that Helite Airnest Vest increases the rider’s safety significantly.

 

Helite Airnest Vest is:

  • Reliable: The system has a safe key-ball system that releases whatever direction you fall.
  • Efficient: The vest inflates quickly and provides protection in less than 0.1 seconds after being activated.
  • Elasticity: The vest is made of a very strong material and fabrics that can withstand high pressure and wear.

Air Jacket for children

Children are a large group in the equestrian sport. They fall more often than adults but don’t hurt themselves as seriously. Children are flexible but a child’s head and brain is much more sensitive than the adult. Therefore, they need a different protection than adults. Helite launched the first Airnest Vest adapted for children in 2010.

This Airnest Vest had to be redesigned in order to adapt the protection to children: 

  • The Airbag inflates outward instead of inward
  • The strength needed to trigger the airbag system is lowered.
  • The saddle strap is adapted for child´s size
  • The airbag shape is adapted to the child’s size
