Hit-Air Equestrian SKV Vest - Children
Hit Air Equestrian Light Airbag Vest - Model SKV for Children is the latest development in body protection. The Hit-Air Vest will instantly inflate in the event of a fall protecting the neck, torso, hips and spine. An innovative design with a high speed airbag fueled by a replaceable CO2 cartridge allows for deployment of the system in .25 seconds to automatically inflate the vest in the event of a fall. When worn over a traditional protective vest, the Hit Air vest can significantly reduce your risk of injury in a fall.
Some Hit-Air Equestrian Riders: Phillip Dutton, Kim Severson, Will Coleman, Rebecca Howard, Doug Payne, Heather Morris, Danny Warrington, Jose Ortelli, James Alliston and many other professional riders all chose Hit-Air because of the protection and comfort while riding.
The Hit-Air SKV Child's vest brings the same level of comfort and protection as the adult's SV2 and LV vests.
A lanyard is attached to both the saddle and the vest. Should the rider and the horse be separated, the lanyard pulls a "key" out of a gas release sytem and inert gas inflates the air cushion. The inflated vest absorbs the impact helping to prevent injury. You will hardly notice this super lightweight and comfortable vest even when worn over a riding vest (which is recommended).
This Harness Typeairbag employs the new higher speed key ball mechanism (component that activates the CO2 cartridge). The SKV Child's model is especially light weight, cool and more comfortable. It is quiet when deployed, making it much less likely to spook the horse during an unintended deployment.
