CES 2019 is here!!! I can’t believe it… Seems like just…yesterday… And last night, CES Unveiled…So many exhibitors… so many great, amazing products.

One of those products that caught my eye was from airbag technology expert, Helite Moto. Helite is a smart airbag vest for cyclists. At first glance, I was pretty impressed. Its technology seems very intriguing. Looks like it has one sensor and one cartridge built into the vest and one sensor to attach under the seat. So what does it provide that another vest does not? Well, it’s the first wearable airbag vest I have ever seen! The system can detect an accident and then will trigger the airbags… How cool is that?!? I saw and heard it in action at Helite’s booth.

Cyclists must protect themselves from injuries. And it looks like the Helite airbag vest can help protect your neck, thorax and back from an injury while riding your bike or motorcycle… And not that I would want to get into an accident to see how well it works– if you know what I mean– but, hey, I’d rather suit myself up to be better protected from the start. Why not? You never know when something might happen and you never know when something as interesting as this might just be your best friend…
