Helite Air Shell: Gilet
Helite is the most trusted and proven equestrian airbag manufacturer in the market. Helite Air Jackets offer protection for the back, pelvis and chest. They give neck coverage as well as preventing impact injuries.
To guarantee a proper functioning of the airbag system, it is of crucial importance to mount the trigger system correctly. The order must always be: piston, key-ball (notch on piston to fit the ball in), spring and bearing cap. The needle of the piston must point in the direction of the cartridge, the key-ball has to fit in the notch of the piston.
Caution: Never put the key-ball between spring and piston, this disables the system to trigger.
- Soft Shell gilet made from the technical showerproof and windproof fabric 'Tekseries'.
- Stretch fabric which allows for outward inflation.
- Unzip the airbag to change the outer jackets from the Helite Air Shell Range.
- Washable outer jacket at 30 degrees wash

I was bought one of the helite airjacket gilets from your stand at Olympia at Christmas. I absolutely love it and always wear it now when I compete (BSJA) or get on young horses coming in and out of my yard. It looks very smart and is not noticeable in the slightest, to the extent that I have been called into judges boxes when they have (finally) noticed it....and they think that I am just wearing a normal gilet. Thanks again for a great product. Harriet Lunnon
