New Helite Airbag Zip'In 2-in-1 vest for riding in any discipline that combines comfort, style, greater freedom of movement and excellent protection. Thanks to the central zip, the airbag can be worn alone or under an approved jacket (Helite, Dada Sport, Oscar & Gabrielle, Freejump ...). Compatible exteriors are indicated by the Zip'In label sewn on the inside of the vest.
The unique shape of the airbag absorbs shock and stabilizes the body from head to tailbone. The airbag inflates very fast (100 ms) and offers the rider complete protection in the vital parts of the body: neck, thorax, back, pelvis and sacrum. The new slimmer cut design allows for better integration and a greater volume of protection on the thorax. It also reduces the weight of the reusable cartridge.
No special maintenance is required. We simply advise an annual safety check before starting the season again to verify the weight of the cartridge and the mechanism. Do not machine wash, do not immerse in water. We recommend that you scrub vigorously with a brush in warm soapy water or baby wipes (no detergent, the products can alter the fabric).
The vest is supplied together with a CO2 cartridge, 1 strap, 1 Allen key and 1 user manual.
How does it work?

Helite was the first manufacturer to develop this airbag system that offers complete protection of vital parts: neck, back, pelvis, sacrum, thorax. The unique shape of the HELITE airbag offers a large volume of gas for optimum pressure to absorb shocks effectively. The inflation time is very fast (100 ms) to protect itself optimally before impact with the ground. Helite airbags are mechanical systems, ready and easy to use and reusable after a fall.
You should only use the Zip'In airbag under approved exteriors. Unapproved exteriors may not withstand inflation and may not adequately protect you.

It is important to choose the right size for optimal protection:
1 - To choose the size of your Zip'In 2 airbag following our size chart. If you have multiple sizes left, choose your favorite size based on your preferred size (slim fit or large, etc.). Hint: your back measurement is important and a good guide to finding the correct size for your airbag.
If you decide to use Zip'IN 2 with a compatible exterior
2- Choose your Zip'In compatible exterior (with the label). CAUTION, you should always carry the same size as your Zip'In airbag. For example, a size S Zip'In airbag must always be associated with a size S AirJump.
Please note: each person has their own body type, our size charts are for information only. We do not recommend using the airbag if you weigh less than 35 kg.
CAUTION: The gas cartridges for the Zip'In 2 airbag are available in 3 sizes: 50cc, 60cc and 85cc. You should always choose the correct size based on the size of the airbag.
