e-turtle-black_CDU-sensor_both_EN.jpg


The technology includes several on-board sensors that analyze the situation in real time and allow 360° detection.

When a fall or accident is detected, the airbag inflates automatically before impact.

The sensor integrated in the vest (CDU) follows and analyzes the movements of the biker in real time.

The optional fork sensor (SDU) detects impacts on the motorcycle.

For complete protection it is highly recommended to add a fork sensor on the motorcycle.
THE ADVANTAGES:

- Faster detection and at first impact: We ensure a detection time from 31 ms et 35 km/h.

More accidents covered: protection at standstill and at low speed at any angle.

The airbag integrated into the vest absorbs shocks and stabilizes the body from head to tailbone. It offers optimal protection of the neck and cervical and covers the vital parts (thorax and back).

The TURTLE Technology is a breakthrough innovation that significantly improves energy absorption especially of sharp or intruding objects that would otherwise damage the airbag.

Frequently Asked Questions

Weather mechanical or electronic, our airbag systems protect you above all! There is no difference in protection between the two models. The airbag protection is and will remain our priority:

- A large airbag volume between 17 and 28 litres depending on the size of the airbag system (the largest airbag volume on the market).

- Optimal neck protection (stabilization of the cervical vertebra to avoid whiplash) and vital parts (back, thorax) covered.

- TURTLE effect: with integrated level 2 back protector for better shock distribution.

It is very easy to activate or deactivate the system. It can be switched ON / OFF by pressing quickly 3 times the button.

The e-Turtle has an autonomy of 25 hours which is about 1 week of use. The USB cable supplied with the vest allows you to recharge your vest. We advise you to recharge your system once a week. If you are using the option "full protection"with the fork sensor, the fork sensor has an autonomy of 5 years and is not rechargeable.

The vest can be switched on or off by quickly pressing the ON/OFF button 3 times. There is no need to turn off the vest on a daily basis, it will automatically go into sleep mode after 30 seconds of inactivity.

However, there are situations where it is imperative to turn off the vest:
- When transporting the vest unworn at a speed of more than 20 km/h (e.g. by car)
- When using different means of transport with your vest (car, metro, tram, train, bus, airplane, etc.)
- During long storage without activity (in winter for example)

 

For a complete protection, for road use, it is highly recommended to add the "full protection" option and the fork sensor on the motorcycle.
THE ADVANTAGES:
- Faster detection and at the first impact: the detection time is divided by 2. We ensure a detection time from 31 ms at 35 km/h.
- More accidents covered: protection at standstill and at low speed whatever the angle of impact.

The "Electronic Airbag System" technology developed by Helite provides 360° protection.

 

The autonomous version (i.e. whithout fork sensor) detects accidents from a speed above 20km/h. Here are the possible detection cases:
- Collision with an obstacle (vehicle, wall, post...) from the front, side or rear.
- Loss of control of the motorcycle (without impact on the motorcycle): Slipping on the side or high side.

 

 

With the fork sensor and the "Full Protection" option:

- Same accidents as before

- Collision at standstill and at low speed.

With a detection time divided by 2.

 

Yes, just like our mechanical airbag systems you can reuse the electronic airbag system as long as the airbag is in good condition (no holes, tears). Easy to do, you can reset the system yourself in 2 minutes, without sending your vest back to Helite. Simply replace (by screwing/unscrewing) the empty e-cartridge with a new e-cartridge, available at all Helite dealers worldwide. Please make sure to choose the right e-cartridge size for the size of your airbag vest.

 

It's quick and easy.
1: Choose the right size of the bracelet: it must fit the motorcycle's fork.
2: Assemble the sensor and the bracelet: Clip the wide side of the bracelet on the side of the fork sensor.
3: Position the sensor: Place the sensor on the bottom of one of the motorcycle's fork sleeves and tighten the screw with the nut.
