Training or competition, dressage or jumping. It’s essential to feel safe no matter what you’re doing. Equipping yourself with an airbag is the best and easiest way to ensure you’re protected against the dangers you face when riding. An appropriately constructed jacket lets the airbag do its job to protect the wearer.
Whether you're a professional rider, an enthusiastic equestrian, or simply someone who values safety, our collection of airbag-compatible pieces allows you to take
risks in the saddle and look good while doing it!
As mentioned, your safety comes first. Regardless of whether you are involved in high-stakes competition jumping or consider yourself more of a leisure rider, the potential of a fall is equally relevant. Upon impact, the airbag is activated in a fraction of a second and inflates to cushion your fall. By doing so, you are at a significantly lower risk of obtaining serious injuries. Airbags of this sort are versatile and are a welcome ally even outside of the riding arena. Don’t cut your riding career short due to a lack of precaution!
This depends on the type of airbag system you have. Depending on the model, fit, and size, we cannot guarantee it will be suited to wear with THEquestrian pieces.
Jackets that are not constructed with the airbag in mind compromise its ability to provide maximum protection. Our pieces that fit to wear over your airbag are designed to give in to the pressure thanks to the use of stretch material in constructing the jackets. As a result, the airbag can fully deploy and provide comprehensive coverage to cushion the impact and prevent severe injuries while the jacket remains completely intact. Moreover, by facilitating the smooth dispersal of the airbag’s pressure, it minimizes the risk of localized pressure points, which could lead to bruising.
