Additional tether lanyard to attach your Helite airbag to an additional motorcycle. (Please keep in mind each garment already comes with one lanyard to get you started!)
Expensive, but how long would it take to spend $30 in the ER?
Service was excellent.
Having the new tethers in hand made me realized just how sketchy my old ones have become. Didn't see any UV damage, but you sure can impair their functionality by resting them against a hot cylinderhead.
Always nice to have spare parts just in case one gets damaged or cut unexpectedly when servicing the bike.
The lanyard (I purchased to use with my turtle 2 airbag vest is made of 1st rate material and I trust my life and safety too it.
I have a much strong sense of ease being on a motorcycle while wearing my Helite AirVest built in to the Adventure Jacket! Always dangers on the road, but with deployment in 80msec time, I am much better protected. Having an extra tether for each bike is a great convenience.
I torched my first tether on the tail pipe of my motorcycle so needed a replacement.. Fast shipping and excellent product. Thanks Guys!
Love my airvest, but my comment on the design is that you need to tether it to the bike. it may sound obvious, but I forget 50% of the time to hook the jacket to the bike. It's worse than useless then, because you will be tempted (like me) to put the bike on cruise control and tether the vest no-hander.
I wish that there were a hard-point of connection to make it easier to remember, or easier to hook up if forgotten.
Anyway, reason to reorder the tether is because I forgot to hook it up, went for a ride, and it melted on the exhaust where it fell down. Jacked obviously useless without it, so reordered it. $25 seems very steep price to me, for 24" of nylon strap.
I bought an extra tether so that I could just leave the tethers on each of my bikes. I wish that Helite gave a price break for extra tethers and CO2 canisters. It would take the sting out of outfitting all bikes and being more likely to use the vest each and every ride.
Finally I got my replacements after two weeks (not so quick neither slow to deliver to Mex City)
It's very good to have an extra tether and because is a standard "clip-safe" is always going to work for the jacket.
Good fabric and good stiches.
