Who's riding (or thinking to start riding) with airbag protection?
It's Zak from Helite. I have been sending out little surveys to customers asking them about their own behaviors when it comes to the airbag vest or jacket they are wearing. It has yielded a lot of interesting feedback. A lot of misinformation unearthed, but moreso great info about the ways in which airbag safety can improve or what options should be available so that it's easier for riders to start adequately protecting themselves with it. For example, the kinds of questions I have been asking of our customers is how often they wear it, have they been in an accident with it, have they needed to replace a cartridge yet, do their passengers wear it when they ride, or do they ever take it to the track and/or the street?
I am interested in hearing from everyone in this case. I'd like to know if you ride with airbag protection, period. It doesn't have to be Helite.
And if you don't, are you waiting to finally pull the trigger? Do you think you will eventually start wearing airbag protection when you ride?
Let me know what you think!
