Motorcycle lanyards are supplied with the purchase of any new Helite Airvest or jacket. In the event you require a spare one or own more than one motorbike, additional lanyards can be purchased.

The Helite lanyard system uses a multi-directional key-ball trigger – this is a proven safe and effective mechanical system for accidents even at low speed. However it is important that you fit this lanyard correctly – please see the user manual for more information.

  • Never attach the lanyard to the handle bars.
  • The lanyard would ideally be attached under the seat around a robust tube of the frame.
  • You should make a loop with the buckle at the most convenient location on the motorcycle
  • The closer the lanyard is to your centre of gravity when seated on the vehicle the better.
  • Try out the length and adjust it until you reach an optimal length.
  • It should only be tight when you are stood up.
  • If the length of the strap is too long the inflation of the airbag jacket could be delayed.
  • We strongly recommend that you get one lanyard per motorcycle and you leave each lanyard securely attached to the bike.
  • Keep it away from anything sharp or abrasive that could damage or weaken the strap.
  • Keep it away from hot elements that could damage or weaken the strap.
