Helite Turtle 2 Electronic Airbag Vest
Helite Turtle 2 Electronic Airbag Vest
The electronic E-Turtle black jacket will appeal to bikers who want to wear the best and very discrete protection. It matches with any outfit and gives extra protection being as unobtrusive as possible. Retro-reflective stripes on the back guarantee the rider a high visibility on the road at night or in bad weather conditions. To improve daily comfort on the road, the collar is made of neoprene material. The three adjustment straps at the front, allow the electronic E-Turtle black vest to easily adapt to all motorcycle jackets while maintaining comfort and great movement freedom. Developed by Helite, the algorithm uses a set of sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope and GPS) that analyze the motorcyclist’s motion more than 1000 times by second and enables to follow the rider in real time on 360 degree. The system ensures a detection time from 62 ms. When a fall is detected, the airbag automatically inflates in less than 55 ms and before impact. This technology offers the possibility of installing an optional sensor on the motorcycle fork. This fork sensor detects impacts on the motorcycle and allows faster detection and more accident situations to be covered. Highly recommended on the road.
The airbag is located under the SAS-TEC level 2 back protector. Like the shell of a Turtle (Turtle), the protection works in the same way as a bikers helmet: on the outside, a rigid shell (the dorsal) covering the soft material inside in contact with the body (the airbag). It is a world first for a motorbike airbag, a small revolution for the sector and probably an innovation that will become standard in a few years. The new Turtle airbag generation is revolutionizing the motorcycle airbag market, achieving incomparable protection results. The synergy between the rigid back part and the airbag brings a significant gain in the distribution of impact forces that dissipates over the entire airbag, greatly improving energy absorption and reducing the risk of intrusion. The Turtle Technology resists and protects much better and on a larger surface against local impacts like small pointed, sharp or blunt objects. The jacket offers a very large volume of protection (the largest on the market) between 17 and 28 L depending on the size of the airbag. This provides better protection in the event of a fall.
Option Full Protection
For total and optimal protection, it is highly recommended to add a second sensor on the motorcycle fork. This option allows to divide the detection time by nearly 2 and to cover more accidents, including stationary and low speed accidents.
The E-Turtle perfectly adapts to all motorcycle equipment. It has three adjustment straps to nicely fit the vest over any motorcycle gear. Resistant fastening clips to sustain many inflations. Easy to open and close even with gloves.
For more safety, retro-reflective parts have been positioned on the back to be visible at night or in bad weather.
Ventilated Textile and Comfort
The inside of the vest incorporates a 3D mesh textile to allow maximum air circulation. It is clear under the arms to give great freedom of movement. It also has a soft neoprene collar that makes it very comfortable even during a long ride.
A small external pocket was added to store items such as a bank card, a highway badge, coins, ...
The reconditioning is very easy and is done by yourself in a few minutes, without any intervention on our part. You only need to replace (by screwing/unscrewing) the empty e-cartridge with a new e-cartridge. Attention: make sure to choose the proper size of e-cartridge. The one corresponding to the size of your airbag vest.
The technology includes several sensors that analyze, in real time, the situation and allows 360 degree detection. When a fall or accident is detected, the airbag automatically inflates before impact. The sensor integrated in the jacket (CDU) tracks and analyzes the motorcyclists movements in real time.
The system is simple and ready to use. No need to connect yourself with the motorcycle anymore, just push the ON/OFF button 3 times to activate the vest.
The E-Turtle has a 25 hours autonomy, that is normally about 1 week of use. A USB cable is supplied with the airbag system to recharge the vest (charging time is about 3 hours).
Our airbag systems are CE certified by the ALIENOR CERTIFICATION laboratory, a recognized and independent institute that certifies protective equipment for motorcyclists (PPE).
