    I have heard through various rumor mills that it will be $150-200 over the MSRP of the GP Air now so it's up there, but about the same as the Alpinestars tech-air race which you need a compatible suit for. Covid delayed Helite getting it to market for this season, otherwise I might have gone with it. I'll be trying out a tech-air race setup next season... that is if I keep enough weight off this winter. Damn small suit once the airbag is in there.

    Hell yeah let us know how it goes. Assuming the electronics are on point if it's a 200 dollar difference that isn't too bad considering how well received the first vest has been. Not the prettiest things but they're solid. I know Revit has some compatible suits with Techair now as well so it's becoming easier and easier to take that route too. Time will tell

    If anyone comes across any updates or group buys please post up. I am hoping to pull the trigger on before season but still undecided on which one.

    Little bit more info on the Klim Airbag vest. I called to pause the monthly subscription since my season is now over. Was told that I can pause up to 4 months of the year. If I want to pause the subscription longer I would have to send the brain portion back in. I would pay shipping each way.

    I think what's nice about the Klim is that you can keep updated on the technology without spending so much. I imagine I would be using this system for 2 years until better technology replaces it.

    I got a Held e-vest with electronics by inmotion a couple of weeks ago. Can't wait to this in under my suit.

    Ohh...yeah...KLIM, Held, Ixon... everyone of those equipped with the inmotion system. Not thrilled about the subscription fee but would submit that it is a very nice system

    Alpinestars Street vests are on sale on some outlets. I'm afraid that it's algorithm is set for the track. Anybody have any insight on this?

    My Held is large size brand new with tags. Slightly loose on me...then again...it could just be a function of the elastic construction. I'll let it go for $360... which is $40 less then what I paid for including shipping from Europe, and will help me purchasing a medium. I'll deliver ti greater Boston but will not take a penny less. Shoot me a PM if interested. Cheers, Eddie
