Frequently Asked Questions

This leather vest is high-quality and can be worn when it is raining. However, it was not designed to be waterproof so the best solution is to wear a waterproof jacket under your Custom airbag. If you want to wear a waterproof jacket over your Custom, it must be large enough to guarantee an optimal inflation of the airbag and to keep an optimal protection.

Like every leather vest a maintenance is necessary to keep its flexibility and its color. We recommend to maintain the airbag vest on a regular base using suitable products. Caution, do not wash the vest with a washing machine or with cleaning supplies, you can damage the leather.

Yes, while keeping in mind that the more resistance there is, the slower the airbag will deploy properly. We recommend to adjust your backpack straps fairly wide.

Yes, as long as the airbag is in good condition (no holes, tears) you can reuse it. Easy to do, you can reset the system yourself in 2 minutes, without sending your vest back to Helite. It is only necessary to replace the CO2 cartridge with a new one, available at all Helite dealers worldwide. Please, check the size of the airbag when replacing cartridges. See our instructional video «INSTALL A NEW CARTRIDGE».

Helite airbags are mechanical to avoid unexpected airbag activation. Accidental deployments are extremely rare. The tractive force required to activate the airbag is between 20 and 30 kg depending on the size. If a rider forgets to detach from his bike, he will feel a strong tension on his vest or jacket before the airbag is triggered. As the car belt, clip and unclip the motorcycle strap will quickly become a habit.
