The GP Air is a tethered airbag vest specially designed for the race track. Ideal for motorcyclists who want to combine convenience and optimal protection.
With its tight and aerodynamic fit and a space left for the suit’s hump, it fits easily over all motorcycle leather suits offering a great freedom of movement.
The airbag vest offers a big protection volume and is equipped with a mechanical system ready to use and easy to reuse. Thanks to its ultra-fast inflation (100 ms), it ensures optimal protection of vital areas: cervical, back, pelvis, sacrum and thorax, before ground impact. It is also provided with removable leather sliders in the back for better protection.
The elastic materials allow a comfortable fit on the sides and at the level of the neck and shoulders.
Even with gloves, the vest is easy to open thanks to the velcro.
It is sold ready to use with 1 gas cartridge, 1 motorcycle lanyard, 1 Allen key and 1 user guide.

It fits well but make sure you actually measure yourself with your suit and back protector in. It's shocking the size difference compared to your usual measurements. Great to have an option I can reload at the track and use across different suits. Ventilation is good enough and the added bulk isn't a big deal.
My son had a bad crash at a local track while wearing the standard gear. After I saw what he went through i decided to up my gear with this GP air track vest. What a big insurance this is! Vest fits great and really I don't even know I have it on. I did although put a reminder on my fuel tank to connect it to the tether . I went down just after I got it with a low side at the track. Vest did everything it was advertised to do! All I got was a sore neck for a bit, I'm a 56 year old man so I like all the protection I can get. I didn't even know the vest deployed until I stood up . Yes i would recommend this to anyone riding track or racing using just the standard track suit!!
I love this vest! I crashed in it two days after I got it. At first I struggled being able to be comfortable with full mobility, however now I am comfortable and confident in it. It gives me the confidence to ride a little harder and a little faster!
Bought the vest about 2 weeks ago it came in within 2 weeks, faster then expected. Sizing is good the vest fits like it said it would on the sizing chart.
I purchased this vest as my 2nd air bag vest for track purposes and just in case my street air bag vest deploys which is my Alpinestars Tech Air 5 Vest. Already used this vest on the street with my 2 piece suit and my regular street gear and the Helite GP vest fits me perfect, I cannot feel it on me nor does it bother me being tethered to my bike compared to my Tech Air 5. The build quality is awesome and I feel very secure and safe to ride with and have a peace of mind should anything happen. In regards to sizing, they run small so you will have to measure yourself in order to get the perfect fit which is surprising that I needed an XLL standing 5'5 and 170 lbs. You have to do your measurements with gear on! Customer Service is the best and the Helite team helped me with sizing immensely! I would spend the money again because it sure beats hospital bills! I already had a low side with my tech air 5 vest so I know how these vests decreases your chances of getting severely hurt big time! You only have one life take care of it and ride safe!!! Thank you to the Team at Helite!!!! You guys Rock!
