In the event of an accident, the airbag deploys utilizing a 100% mechanical trigger. This results in maximum reliability with no maintenance. Helite uses electronic systems in other industries, but for motorcycle riding use we know that the mechanical trigger is the most reliable and easy to use. Upon activation, a spring loaded piston pierces the C02 cartridge and rapidly inflates the airbag around the neck and body.
