Hit-Air SKV for Motorcyclists
The Hit-Air SKV vest has been designed for children to use when riding and offers maximum protection of the back, neck, spine, collarbone, hips, internal organs and ribs. The Hit-Air range is the only inflatable safety vest range with air bags specifically designed to protect the ribs. The vest also provides superior neck protection, decelerating the neck to avoid whiplash and hyper-extension. It has integrated airbags throughout the vest which inflate in just 0.25 seconds, as soon as the child leaves the motorcycle.
Please note that for the air bags to inflate, the child must weigh 25kg or over, as the inflation mechanism only responds to a weight of 25kg or more. The advantage of the vest's weight sensitivity is that it is very unlikely to be pulled accidentally. The airbags are activated by a lanyard, which attaches securely to the motorcycle.
The patented technology of the Hit-Air SKV vest has been fully lab tested and is used by police forces around the world, making it a trusted brand. The air bags inflate outwards to avoid the rider being winded and they deflate slowly, to avoid further injury after an accident. The vest can be re-used again and again, but servicing is recommended annually or after a heavy impact. The vest comes with a user manual and tools in order to change the canister after inflation, and one free canister is supplied with the vest.
Hit-Air vests can be worn on their own but also compliment other body protectors. The inflatable panels are folded away securely when riding, so that no loose parts can be caught by the wind. The vest is very lightweight and can be adjusted with two straps to fit closely to the body, making it feel very comfortable when riding. There are also adult versions of this vest, so that the whole family can be protected (see the ‘Similar Products’ tab).

Hit-Air SKV for Horse Riders
The Hit-Air SKV can be used for eventing and all other equestrian disciplines. The integrated airbags inflate in only 0.25 seconds, as soon as the child comes out of the saddle. This means that the airbag will inflate before the child reaches the ground. This can be very effective in case of a rotational fall, to prevent severe crush injuries. The airbags deflate slowly after a fall to prevent further injuries and can be re-used by changing the gas canister. Special tools are included with the Hit-Air SKV vest for this purpose, along with one free gas canister.
The vest is securely attached to the saddle with a saddle strap and lanyard (included) which attaches to the stirrup bars. When the lanyard is pulled, the Hit-Air system activates and the vest inflates. The airbags protect the back, neck, spine, collar bone, internal organs and ribs. The neck airbag can decelerate the neck in an accident, preventing whiplash and hyper-extension. The Hit-Air range is also the only inflatable safety vest range to include rib cage airbags. Hit-Air’s unique patented technology has been lab-tested, won safety awards and even been used by mounted police forces.
Please note that for the air bags to inflate, the child must weigh 25kg or over, as the inflation mechanism only responds to a weight of 25kg or more. The advantage of the vest's weight sensitivity is that it is very unlikely to be pulled accidentally.
The Hit-Air SKV vest offers superior comfort and flexibility with adjustable straps, adjustable lanyard length and a lightweight feel. It can be worn with other body protection or on its own and fits a wide range of children's sizes. The back protection and all inflatable areas fold away securely when riding, so there is no interference with the saddle. We also stock a whole adult range of Hit-Air vests so that the whole family can ride safely together (see ‘Similar Products’ tab). If the child weighs 35kg or over, the SV-2 equestrian vest is also suitable for children.
