Freejump Airbag Technology
AIRBAG FREEJUMP :
COMFORT & CERTIFIED SAFETY
The AIRBAG FREEJUMP vest is the first equestrian airvest to have been approved by the NF S72- 800-202 standard.
France is the first country to adopt a standard governing the manufacture of equestrian airbags (PPE – Personal Protective Equipment). While waiting for a European harmonization, the NF S72-800-2022 standard provides riders with increased protection by regulating the protective surface, the speed of the inflation and by imposing much more severe impact tests on the vests.
The Freejump Airbag is the result of our taste for innovation, and our concern for the performance, comfort and safety of riders. Martin Fuchs has been leading the way since July 2019 (CHIO Aachen) using the Freejump Airbag and the Oscar & Gabrielle compatible jackets.
The Airbag Freejump is worn close to the body under a compatible jacket, or can be over a thin layer of clothing (T-shirt, showjacket, sweater or thin pullover …).
Compatible jackets bear the “Freejump Airbag Technology” badge.
