The P2-RS will hold a rider tight for 15-20 seconds and then slowly deflate. Rigorous checks have been made on the inflated P2-RS to ensure it did not impede riders should they need to roll away from danger when on the ground.
The P2-RS is fully reusable, and requires servicing annually or after every six falls.
The P2-RS inflates at speeds of up to 0.093 of a second, to provide enhanced protection to all the major thoracic and upper abdominal organs, the spine and the collar of the neck. It also helps guard against crushing injuries in the event of a rotational fall.
The RS2010 Racesafe body protector, approved to BETA 2009 Level 3, is incorporated into the P2-RS which has the added protection of Point Two air vest technology.
The P2-RS is more comfortable, convenient and nearly 20% lighter than using a separate body protector and air jacket - as required in UK competition.
