PROTECTION

ELECTRONIC AIRBAG SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY

The technology includes several on-board sensors that analyze the situation in real time and allow 360° detection.

When a fall or accident is detected, the airbag inflates automatically before impact.

The sensor integrated in the vest (CDU) follows and analyzes the movements of the biker in real time.

The optional fork sensor (SDU) detects impacts on the motorcycle.

OPTION ‘FULL PROTECTION’

For complete protection it is highly recommended to add a fork sensor on the motorcycle.
THE ADVANTAGES:

– Faster detection and at first impact: We ensure a detection time from 31 ms et 35 km/h.

More accidents covered: protection at standstill and at low speed at any angle.

ELECTRONIC TRIGGER SYSTEM

The e-Turtle airbag integrates the “electronic airbag system” by Helite. Easy to use, simply press the button three times to switch the system on or off.

AIRBAG PROTECTION

The airbag integrated into the vest absorbs shocks and stabilizes the body from head to tailbone. It offers optimal protection of the neck and cervical and covers the vital parts (thorax and back).

TURTLE TECHNOLOGY

The TURTLE Technology is a breakthrough innovation that significantly improves energy absorption especially of sharp or intruding objects that would otherwise damage the airbag.

E-CARTRIDGE

The e-cartridge deploys the airbag in the event of a fall. It is easily and quickly installed and replaced by the rider.

COMFORT

SOFT COLLAR AND TECHNICAL TEXTILE

The vest has a soft neoprene collar for a better comfort around the neck. It is also provided with an interior textile 3D mesh for maximum air circulation.

EXTERIOR POCKET

The vest has an exterior pocket for small objects (bank card, cash, highway badge, etc.).

ADJUSTMENT

Three adjustment straps to make the vest fit nicely over any motorcycle gear.

FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT

The vest has a very low cut underarm to keep a full freedom of movement.
