Held Airbag Vest By Helite

The Held Airbag Vest is an inflatable protective vest designed by the airbag technology experts at Helite. The Held Airbag Vest can be worn by the riders as well as their passenger and is lightweight and discreet. Just attach the release cord under your seat, mount the bike, attach the cord to your vest and you're ready to roll. Worried that you'll forget to detach the cord when you dismount and the the airbag will activate? Accidental activation is virtually impossible as deployment of the airbag requires a minimum pull of 66 pounds.

The Held Airbag Vest goes one step further in protection with the addition of a removable SAS-TEC back and tailbone protector along with 3M Scotchlite reflectors for greater visibility. 

In the event of an accident, the airbag deploys utilizing a 100% mechanical trigger. This results in maximum reliability with no maintenance. Helite believes that the mechanical trigger is the most reliable and user friendly. Upon activation, a spring loaded piston pierces the CO2 cartridge and rapidly inflates the airbag around the neck and body. After deployment, the Airbag can be reloaded with a fresh CO2 cartridge (sold separately) and is ready to protect again.

Features:

  • Inflates completely within 0.1 seconds
  • Protects back, neck, tailbone, ribs and chest
  • Collarbone protector offers stability within/between shoulder and helmet
  • Roomy armholes provide mobility
  • CE approved 1621-2 SAS-TEC back and tailbone protector
  • 1 external pocket
  • Interior 3D mesh
  • Exterior 600D fabric
  • Front clips secure the vest and are easy to open and close, even with your gloves on
  • 1 60 cc CO2 canister included
  • 1 tether/release cord included
  • Uses a 60cc CO2 cartridge

Sizing:

  • SM: 4'10"-5'7" 90lbs-150lbs

Air Bag crash experience.
I have both a Helite Air Bag Vest and a Hit-Air airbag vest.
They are both excellent, well built and durable.

The two are quite similar in functionality, bit differ a bit in style. From what I have been told they were sister companies.

What is more important is that I have crashed wearing one of these air bag vests and it saved me from serious injury. What is really remarkable is that I didn't have a scratch or bruise on my whole body, not even a stiff neck, just a rather nasty wound to my right thumb.

I caught it all on my helmet cam. The video says it all.

A Must Safety Item
Purchased my helite vest and took on my first trip in Nov. Fit was true, attachment to bike frame was easy and no interference while riding.

Honestly, I understand the price is a little steep, but relative to bodily injury and crash recovery w/out, not even a close decision.

Don't know why everyone doesn't use this technology!

What's the difference between the Helite Held and the Helite Turtle?
Joseph P on Jan 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sizing is identical. The Held in black uses the same left side cover flap over the velcro sizing straps that the hi-viz versions do. Theres a small external pocket on the cover flap. There is a coccyx sas-tec below the sas-tec back protector. The vest comes loaded with co2 and all lanyards. The only hi-viz difference is the pocket and coccyx protector.
whats the difference between the held and the turtle vest?

What do you think about using this UNDER the Klim Rally Air Jacket?
BoulderBrian on Jun 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These airbag vests need to be used over your jacket. My advice is get one as soon as you can. Look at what my air-bag vest did for me:
