Product information

Made by bikers for bikers

What began as a small glove-making business back in 1946 is now one of Germany's largest motorcycle clothing and accessory firms. Ever since they developed the first out-and-out racing glove for Toni Mang, back in 1983, Held has rightly been regarded as THE glove brand. Continuous development and innovation coupled with top-quality craftsmanship have built an excellent reputation. And one that has long since extended far beyond gloves: textile and leather clothing, helmets, tank bags and saddlebags are just a few of the products from the Allgäu-based family firm creating a sensation around the biking world.

    Held Helite inflatable Airbag Vest
    Reacts at lightning speed and inflates automatically in a fraction of a second!

    • Deploys fully within one-tenth of a second.
    • Gives extensive protection for back, neck, tailbone, ribs and chest in the event of a crash.
    • Full collar bone protector gives stability between shoulder and helmet, thereby significantly relieving forces acting on the spine.
    • Close fit with large arm openings for unrestricted freedom of movement.
    • Removable SAS-TEC back and tailbone protector
    • 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material
    • CE-certified Turtle Airbag System.

    How it works:

    • Secure the release cord to a sturdy part under the seat. Adjust the release cord so that it is as short as possible without restricting your freedom of movement.
    • Get onto your motorcycle and, in the sitting position, connect the release cord to the vest using the click closure.
    • Job done! The vest is fully functional in one-tenth of a second.
    • In the event of an accident, it will inflate in a fraction of a second

    Please note:
    Disconnect the release cord before getting off your motorcycle. It is, however, almost impossible to accidentally trigger the inflatable protector, whether you???re standing or sitting, as it requires a pulling force of at least 30 kg.


    • 100% polyester
