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.

- Double TURTLE effect: with back and chest protector for better shock distribution.

The e-GP Air 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.

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)

 

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

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.

 

Even if it is highly recommended on the road, you must not use the fork sensor option "full protection" on the race track. However, it is possible to buy the fork sensor separately if you use the e-GP Air on the road.

 

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 the e-cartridge with a new one, available at all Helite dealers worldwide. Please make sure to choose the right e-cartridge size for the size of your airbag vest.
