Frequently Asked Questions

It is important to choose the right size of your airbag for optimal protection. For this, we advise you follow our size chart. Hint: measuring your back is important and a good indication to finding the right size. Please note that this Airbag Safety Vest should always be worn over your normal riding gear. You should therefore only take your measurements whilst wearing your equipment.

  • Bus, train, car:

No constraint. For electronic models, remember to turn off the vest when you take this type of transport with your vest.


  • Plane :

You may encounter some difficulties with the security services regarding the CO2 canisters used to inflate the airbag. According to the regulations (IATA Regulations – see download), you are authorised to fly with 2 gas canisters (the volume must be less than 200cc), in the cabin or in the hold. Even if the regulations allow it, it is possible that the security service or the airline refuses to let you board with it. We strongly recommend that you print the “IATA Regulations” and show this document to the security service or the airline during the control if they ask for more explanations. In any case, it is the airport security service and the airline that will make the final decision whether or not to accept the airbag on board.

Often each airline will have their own advice pages online, it is worth printing these out also as supplementary documentation.
