How Long Does The Airbag Remain Inflated After A Fall?Tom
In the event of a fall, the airbag vest inflates in less than 100 ms, protecting and stabilizing the upper body. After 15-20 seconds the airbag will slowly begin to deflate and after 5-7 minutes it will be completely deflated.
TIP: To deflate the airbag quicker, unscrew the cartridge which can be removed right after the fall.
What Happens When The Rider Falls?Tom
When the rider is ejected from the saddle, it pulls out the key-ball from the lanyard activating the system. The gas deploys into the airbag in less than 100 ms (faster than the blink of an eye). The airbag then absorbs the impact and stabilizes the upper body from head to tailbone while protecting internal organs and preventing whiplash.

After a fall and the deployment of the airbag, the rider can get back on the horse within a few minutes. Helite's easy-to-use airbag is reset by the rider without any intervention from our part. Simply replace the empty CO2 cartridge with a new Helite cartridge of the same capacity.
