airbag project BREMBOLife Jacket

Brembo has approached Helite in 2007 to develop an individual airbag protection for urban two-wheelers.

Helite and Brembo have been collaborating to invent an airbag jacket activated 100% mechanically, specifically designed for the Urban Italian market. The product launch took place in May 2010. The Brembo Life Jacket is available and distributed on internet and through an Italian network of high end fashion stores. 

The emphasis went to protecting the thoracic, as 40% of the traumas in city accidents occurs on the thorax. The research focused on faster inflation and bigger volumes on this specific part of the body. 

Coupled with the innovative mechanical system is an inertial reel belt that blocks in case of an abnormal acceleration, this revolutionizing characteristic makes the inflation of the mechanical airbag be the fastest in the world. Indeed, the mechanical system integrated in the fashion jacket inflates in 80 milliseconds. The inertial reel belt was developed by another partner, Sabelt, an expert in seatbelts for different types of vehicles.

There are 5 different Brembo Life Jackets, 3 for men and 2 for women, available in several sizes and colors.

Why wear an air jacket? An air vest is a revolution in the world of protection. The air vest will inflate and protect the rider from serious injuries. Helite has a unique activity as it focuses exclusively in improving and developing products such as the air vest. The risks of injuries are still very high but the air vest is a very good solution to save one's life or at least minimize the consequences of a bad fall. Finally, one of the big challenges for Helite is to offer an air vest that people are ready to wear. The point is not to buy the air vest and not wear it. So we make sure the air vest is attractive, light, comfortable, reusable and easy to wear.
