Freejump strengthens by acquiring Oscar & Gabrielle Airbag jackets
In recent years, the Airbag vest has become an essential element of safety for young riders. Riding on these new safety requirements, Oscar & Gabrielle has developed with Hélite, the world leader in Airbag vests, a competition jacket that discreetly integrates the Airbag into the jacket’s lining.
Freejump and Oscar & Gabrielle, two companies based out of Bordeaux, share their common values of comfort, safety and performance, their know-how and experiences.
* Developed 3 years ago in collaboration with Helite, the Oscar & Gabrielle by Freejump show jacket is today the reference for the Airbag jackets that riders need to practice their sport in total security.
Initially invented for NASA pilots and already used in motorcycle circuits, gliding and skiing, individual airbags are essential today for all risky sports.
Helite is a French company, world leader in individual airbags, and the specialist dedicated to sports’ airbags.
For the first time in top level showjumping, a top 10 rider, Martin Fuchs n°2 in the FEI ranking jumps all Grand Prix all over the world every weeks with a competition Airbag jacket Oscar & Gabrielle by Freejump. Integrated and invisible under the jacket, the airbag inflates in case of a fall in less than one-tenth of a second to protect the vital parts of the body.
Martin Fuchs, 27 years old Swiss rider is the 2018 World Equestrian Games’ individual silver medalist, 2019 World Cup Final’s silver medalist, European Champion and winner in 2019 of the Grand Prix of Basel, Wellington, Madrid, Estoril, Lyon and Geneve
