Helite airbags are mechanical to avoid unexpected airbag activation and changing batteries. It is a ready-to-use system that you can reactivate by yourself. You simply need to connect the lanyard via the saddle strap with your saddle.


A saddle strap is delivered with each Zip'In airbag. For safety reasons, more reliability and faster inflation it is important to correctly install and use the saddle attachment. No special tools or technical knowledge are required to install the strap on your saddle.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, this is possible since the airbag is provided with a central zip. However, we recommend wearing it most of the time under an approved outer to avoid damage to the airbag in the event of a fall.

The Zip’In 2 provides improvements especially in the use and integration of the airbag:
- A central zip has been added to wear the Zip’In 2 alone or with an approved outer (preferred version)
- Improvement of the airbag shape offers a better integration into the outers and a bigger protection volume at the thorax
- Reduction of the cartridge weight for higher comfort

It’s simple, just combine the Zip’In 2 airbag with an approved outer (with or without zip). The compatibility is always indicated by the ‘Zip’In’ label. Caution: the size of the jacket and the Zip’In airbag must be the same. For example, a Zip’In airbag in size M must always be associated with a compatible outer in size M. To know your size, please refer to our size chart. If you hesitate between two sizes, take the bigger size.

No, you must not wash your Zip’In airbag in a washing machine or by immersing it in water. We advise you to clean the Zip’In airbag with a soft cloth and soapy water or with babywipes (no detergent, products may alter the fabric). Never put your Zip’In airbag in the tumble drier, on the heater or next to a heat source. When your airbag is clean, store it in a dry place away from moisture.

Helite airbags are mechanical to avoid unexpected airbag activation. Accidental deployments are rare. The tractive force required to activate the airbag is between 20 and 30 kg depending on the size. If a rider forgets to detach from his horse, he will feel a strong tension on his jacket before the airbag is triggered. As the car belt, clip and unclip the saddle strap will quickly become a habit.

Yes, as long as the airbag is in good condition (no holes, tears) you can re-use it. Easy to do, you can reset the system yourself in 2 minutes, without sending your vest back to Helite. It is only necessary to replace the cartridge with a new one, available at all Helite dealers worldwide (list on our website Please, check the size of the airbag when replacing cartridges.
