Product Details

Helite Turtle Airbag Vest

The Helite Turtle Airbag Vest offers the highest level of rider safety. The lightweight vest protects riders' spine and vital organs due to its revolutionary design, inorporating a back protector on top of the air bag that disperses impact forces across the vest instead of concentrated in one spot. With its mechanical trigger and lead system, there are no delicate sensors to fail or batteries to replace. Simply connect the lead to your vest and bike and go. When the rider is ejected from the motorcycle in the event of a accident, the trigger is pulled and the vest inflates, creating a rigid neck brace as well as firm support to the spine, back, chest, ribs and kidneys. 

Features:

  • Turtle CE approved airbag effective in 0.1 seconds
  • Removable SAS-TEC back protector 1621-2 certified
  • Textile 600D to effectively resist abrasion
  • Retro-reflective tape for night use
  • Interior 3D mesh for comfort
  • Robust front clips are easy to open and close
  • Adjustable side straps
  • 1 CO2 cartridge and 1 motorcycle tether included
  • SM-XL use a 60cc CO2 Cartridge
  • LG-L and XL-L use a 100cc CO2 Cartridge

Sizing Recommendations: The vests are made to be long enough to sit on, but you do not want the rib protection so low that it is covering below the waist. The other fit to avoid is wearing the vest too small so it rides up high under the arms. The vest should have a loose fit and be long enough to cover the hip and pelvic areas in the event of an accident.

Watch the video
Watch the video for sizing. I am 6 foot weigh 190lbs my chest, waist and hips said I should take the Large-l but the video if you watch has a 6foot plus and 200plus guy wearing a large. so I should have gotten and eventually did get a large. the Large-L as near as I can figure is for a TALL person...... it is quite heavy and I was worried about it making my shoulders ache after a longer ride. Not a worry. I have aches and pains (63) but not from wearing the vest. it fits over my Large olimpic sports jacket just fine. For styling......it's a vest that fits over your jacket........ Probably will be hot in Arizona.....

Field tested within a week and it works...
I have seen/read/heard testimonials about this product for the past couple of years. Eventually I broke down and bought one from Revzilla.
I appreciate the videos in the website, and enjoy the somewhat sarcastic reparte of the narrator.
Bought the vest, and within a week of daily use had the unfortunate occasion to use it in “real life.”
It freaking works.
They call it a turtle vest because when you’re laying on your back looking up at the sky you feel sorta like a turtle trying to turn over.
Revzilla gave me some sort of “bucks” which covered the cost of a replacement CO2 cartridge-nice.
Only criticism I have is that my vest arrived without a manual or the 5mm Allen Wrench needed to reassemble/rearm the gas delivery system, but honestly I probably would have lost all that stuff eventually anyway.
I’m a Revzilla fan - I tend to save money buying here rather than at the dealer on big ticket items like Schuberth Helmets.

Great Idea
As I have gotten older, I no longer wear shorts and t-shirts when riding and instead follow the ATGATT rule. The sizing for this isn't straightforward, but they walk you through it so it is reasonable. Adjustments are fairly easy with the extra velcro. I hope never to have to find out if it works, but am glad to have it. I did get the yellow and it is extremely bright, i.e. sunburn bright.

This vest can save your life. Buy it.
This is a great cost effective safety device to help you survive a crash. It is hostile out there. You need this. I got one for me and my wife and child. I wear it ever ride. All the gear all the time. It is easy to wear and install with the enclosed lanyard that simply attaches near the seat. It is not hot to wear. Great product.

protection for an old rider
Having been riding a long time the hazards have grown greatly all the demos have impressed me with the effectiveness of the airbag vest. This devise was easy to ware and attach to the frame. It is almost unnoticeable when being worn. Price and service from revzilla was great. I hope I never need it but feel better with it on.

Feel much more confident on the road
I was hesitant to get this vest for two reasons: I didn't think I would wear it, and I would look like a total weenie. Fortunately, neither are true. It looks much ridiculous than I thought it would, and I have worn it every ride since I've gotten it.

It does make the ride a little hotter, but for the safety, the tradeoff is worth it.

Size wise, I'm 6'4" 210 and went with an XL. I nearly went with an L, but glad I sized up, it covers my hips and sits just above my beltline, which according to Helite is a perfect fit.

Get one yesterday.
I crashed in one of these last weekend and walked away completely uninjured.

No, it's not cheap, but it sure beats having a broken collarbone, or worse!

The sizing is a little strange. For example, the top chest strap is too long (you end up tucking in a lot of excess) even though I followed the size chart (I'm 6'2" so wear the XL size).

Other than that: it's comfortable, doesn't feel heavy, and doesn't interfere with ventilation in the summer.

Helite Review
I have had my Helite airbag vest for a few weeks now and ridden about 2000K with it and here are my thoughts.

Is it heavy? Yes, when you first put it on you do notice the weight but as soon as you start riding you completely forget about it.

Is it comfortable in hot weather? Not in city riding but as soon as you get some speed up it is okay except in the very hottest of weather.

Down sides:

The disconnect buckle on the lanyard and be a bit of a pain in the ass to disconnect when you have gloves on.

I now have a few small scratches on the tank from the buckle and some sort of a protective sleeve that can be pulled down over the buckle would help prevent scratching.

Do I regret buying it? Not at all, I consider it a good investment.

Size chart leaves too much wiggle room
I'm 6'5" tall, 215 pounds. Big frame, but I don't have a gut. I studied the size chart closely, took my measurements, and ordered the XLL-L. The main reason for ordering that size is the length of the vest. The others seemed too short.
Well, received it today and I'm swimming in it. Even with the adjustable straps cinched tight, I can still fit two fists stacked on top of each other between the vest and my leather jacket.
Nope.
So, I called RevZilla's legendary customer service team and Cody talked me through ordering another vest. The man was supremely patient, and even went to Helite's website to review their sizing recommendations. We decided on an LG-L after much consideration. Hoping I get it in time for my cross-country ride in 6 days.
Cody emailed me an RMA and return shipping label to return the enormous vest.
My suggestion is to order based on your waist and chest, stay to the smaller end of the size ranges and still hit your measurements, and the length will work out fine.

By far my best upgrade!
I've owned this vest for a few weeks, and what surprised me even more than the fact that it actually is comfortable to wear, is that I actually enjoy the riding experience more now. I was never a nervous rider (far from it) but now I'm noticeably more relaxed on the bike.

Ask a rep about sizing recommendations before you order this vest - I ended up with an XL and despite me being 5'4" and modestly built (not fat) it fit like a glove. I would have ordered a smaller size, so glad the rep talked me into the XL.

ATGATT is a way of life for me, and I will never ride without this vest again. The $ is already forgotten, the peace of mind is so worth the investment.

Cons - minor critique, it rubs on my helmet and squeaks a little when I turn my head. I'm sure that will get better on it's own, or some reflective tape might quiet the noise.
