'hit-air ........the only fully CE approved outward inflating air vest'


  • the Hit-Air vest is designed as a shock buffering, stabalising system, giving added protection to the neck, spine, collar bones, lower back, rib cage and vital organs
  • the neck protection is designed to decellerate the neck in the event of a fall, significantly reducing the possibility of hyper extension and whiplash
  • the Hit-Air vest is the only air vest on the market which has rib cage air bags, helping to protect both ribs and vital organs
  • the patented design, allows the lower back protection to be neatly folded away, so that it does not interfere with the saddle
  • the vest inflates outwards (rather than inwards) so there is no possibility of the rider being winded by the inflation process
  • the Hit-Air vest compliments all types of body protectors
  • it can be worn on its own giving considerably more protection to the rider on inflation than riding without protection
  • the inflation rate of the air vests differ for each size and model. The average inflation rate of the H-Vests is 0.15 seconds and the inflation rate of the SV-2 and the LV models is 0.25 seconds*
  • the canister and key ball are enclosed to protect the mechanism from dirt in the event of a fall

*Testing was conducted under laboratory conditions by the Japanese Automobile Research Institute and is the time taken from activation of the key ball mechanism to the point of full inflation.


  • the super-lightweight air vest is perfect for hacking and schooling, in addition to the more extreme equestrian disciplines
  • the patented design allows the hit-air vest to expand when inflated allowing it to be worn discreetly without compromise in safety
  • the outward inflation means it can be worn neatly over the body or body protector


  • the design has evolved to suit the unique ergonomics of the rider
  • the Hit-Air vest is the airbag, it is not contained within a jacket, providing significantly improved wearability and freedom of movement
  • the air vest weighs only 810g. Riders report that they do not feel that they have got it on.
