Each IMPACT JACKET comes with a landyard(already attached to the
jacket) two anchoring cables and a CO2 cartridge as part of the
complete airbag system. The anchoring cable is connected to the frame
of the bike, and when you get on the bike very simply connect the
lanyard to the anchoring cable and you are ready to ride. When you get
off of the bike simply unhook the landyard from the anchoring cable
and walk away. If you forget to unhook the landyard from the anchoring
cable do not worry, it takes 25-35lbs of pull force to deploy the
airbag system leaving enough room to minimize false inflations.
In the event of an accident when the rider is ejected off of the
bike the landyard will separate from the bike activating the CO2
cartridge to instantly inflate the jacket in approximately a half
second. The jacket provides extra protection when ejected from the
bike to the most vulnerable parts of the body. The jacket enhances
protection to the front chest area, side ribs areas, the back area giving support to the neck and spine areas.
All of the jackets are reusable, after inflation however all jackets need to be inspected by an authorized dealer for damage before reuse. The CO2 cartridge is good for one inflation only and must be replaced by an authorized dealer.
Note: The IMPACT JACKET is made for adults and children 100 lbs and over.
