Our strong ideas for performance and innovation in equestrian sports has naturally led us to turn our attention more towards safety issues. With the 2019 purchase of theOscar&Gabrielle brand, well established and renowned as a leading name in clothing compatible with airbags, we set foot in the exciting world of individual protective garments.
More motivated than ever to meet riders’ needs with an airbag that is higher performing, more breathable and better looking, we took a fresh look at our range and after a year working and researching with top level riders and organisations dedicated to safety,our second generation FREEJUMP AIRBAG was born.
Today, the FREEJUMP AIRBAG#2 vest isthe first and only airbag to be certified, according to the new norm NF S72-800-2021.Following the work of a team of European experts working together for 4 years, France is the first country to adopt a norm for the manufacture of horse-riding airbags.
While waiting for European harmonisation, this new norm NF S72- 800-2021 promises horse riders increased protection regarding the area protected, the inflation speed and because all vests are subject to more stringent impact tests.
New design: better protection, 2021 Norm
New textiles: more breathable, more flexible and smoother
New Gas Cartridge: lighter quicker,new 2021 Norm
New leashes (with ball and Y) : quieter, high performance textile
