Helite has designed and manufactured the world’s first smart airbag for cyclists. Cycling is an increasingly popular sport in the UK and with the introduction of E bikes these numbers are sure to be on the rise.
According to the latest research 355 cyclists per week are injured on our roads in Great Britain – 2 of which were tragically killed. Second to the helmet Helite have produced the first other piece of safety equipment in the form of an airbag which has the capability of significantly reducing the risk of injury and/or death to our cyclists.
Over 100,000 Helite airbags have been sold throughout the world and their ‘life-saving’ properties have made them a prominent feature in the Motorcycle & Horse Riding disciplines.

Yes! B’Safe does not protect the head and does not replace the use of a helmet. It must be worn in addition to the helmet or any other safety equipment.
Yes, you can wear a backpack over your B’Safe vest.
Caution: Make sure that the adjustment straps of the backpack are loose enough to allow the vest to inflate correctly.
Yes, the system is totally reusable after each inflation. It only takes 2 to 5 minutes to reactivate your airbag vest. Just check that the vest is completely deflated and replace the used e-canister with a new Helite e-canister of the same capacity.
No. The e-canister is single-use and not reusable. A used or damaged e-canister will have to be recycled or disposed in accordance with your country’s legislation. To reactivate your airbag system, you must replace the old e-canister with a new one of the same capacity from Helite.
