Frequently Asked Questions

The GP AIR has been specially developed for the race track. The airbag vest is made of resistant materials against abrasion. We focused on aerodynamics with a perfect fit (stretchy fabric) and a space for the suit’s hump. Also, we integrated a very good protection with the double TURTLE effect.

For more protection, we decided to integrate a body armour at the front and at the back for a double TURTLE effect ! The Turtle Technology is a very big protection improvement, the results of absorption and distribution of shocks are considerably higher. After a lot of tests on race track, we chose body armour because it has really good results of absorption (no risk of hyperflexion), it is flexible and comfortable for the pilot.

No front zipper or buckle on the chest to ease side slide on the tank. The cartridge is integrated in the foam, so you don’t feel it.

We use a red velcro to show the limit to close the GP AIR airbag. If you still see the red velcro then the vest isn’t closed enough.

Your can wear this airbag vest on the road. You have two possibilities:
- If you wear a jacket with a hump, it is perfect you have an optimal protection.
- If you wear a normal motorcycle jacket please keep /add a body protection at the back.

Your airbag must stay inflated to support and protect the rider long enough. It will take 5-7 minutes for the airbag to deflate completely. If you unscrew and remove the canister, the airbag will deflate quickly. You can unclip and remove the airbag immediately after the fall if you are in a safe area.
