4 sizes available depending on the type and size of your airbag: 50 CC, 60 CC, 85 CC et 100 CC
To know which cartridge size to insert in your vest, please refer to the label inside your right pocket.
In the event of a fall, HELITE users need to replace the empty cartridge with a new one exclusively produced and branded by HELITE.
You must always use a Helite branded cartridge for your Helite airbag system.

ATTENTION, some retailers offer CO2 gas cartridges at attractive prices.
You must not use these cartridges for various reasons:
- technical compatibility problem (not the same gas volume, screw thread, etc.)
- lower quality compared to HELITE cartridges (seal, corrosion, fragility, etc.)
- loss of the CE certification for the product
- proper functioning of the airbag system is not guaranteed.
The CO2 cartridge can be easily and quickly replaced. The system can be reactivated by yourself within a few minutes without any special knowledge required. The size of the cartridge is proportional to the size of the airbag. One cartridge is always included with your airbag. We recommend you buying an extra cartridge to have as a spare in case of a fall.
PLEASE NOTE: For safety reasons, we ask you to check your airbag on an annual basis:
Unscrew and weigh your CO2 cartridge on a scale. Please make sure it is approximate +/- 3g for 50CC and 60CC cartridges or +/- 5g for 100CC cartridges to the weight written on your cartridge (HELITE sticker on the cartridge).
Please find below some precautions for your cartridges:
CALF: MEASURED AROUND THE LEG AT CALF’S WIDEST PART
HEIGHT: MEASURED BARE FEET FROM THE BEND OF THE KNEE DOWN TO THE FLOOR
