We recommend to take the Hit-Air once activated to an authorized dealer for a maintenance check and re-assembling.
It can be reused if it is re-assembled in accordance with the following procedure, but unless it is done properly, it may not work. It cannot be re-assembled if it is damaged by the previous activation.

How to dismantle the airbag system
The outer jacket or vest only can be washed after the airbag system is removed.
(The airbag system should not be washed)
As the airbag system is simply fastened to the jacket by means of buttons, fasteners and/or Velcro, it can be removed easily by unfastening them.
*See How to dismantle the airbag system in detail.
Attention after activation
Pay attention when the jacket with the Hit-Air is inflated as follows.
- The jacket with Hit-Air is designed to provide protection especially to the wearer’s neck, so when it is inflated, there will be some pressure around the neck, and if it is difficult release the strap of helmet, take the Hit-Air off immediately.
- Watching around the situation calmly, unzip and release the buckle to take off the jacket.
- If the scene of accident seems to be dangerous, go to the safe area before taking off the jacket.
- When the Hit-Air is inflated, a feeling of tightness may be felt, but the gas will leak out gradually.
- Therefore, calm yourself even if the body with the inflated jacket is pressed down by something.
- If the air cushion is punctured when fully inflated, the gas in all the cushions will immediately escape and the cushions deflate.
- If the Hit-Air inflates accidentally for some reason while riding, do not upset. Look for a safe place and take an appropriate action. To continue to ride with the inflated Hit-Air may be dangerous due tothe increasing wind resistance etc. Remove it first.
- If there is an external damage to the Hit-Air due to its activation, take it to an authorized dealer for a maintenance check and to replace the gas cartridge. In cases of extreme damages externally or internally, it may not be repairable.
- Be aware of the points listed below when attempting to re-assemble the Hit-Air by yourself after it is activated.
- Whether it has external damages(holes, scratches,tears etc.)
- Confirm that the airbag is fully inflated when it is activated.
- Confirm that the gas cartridge to be replaced is the correct size and unused.
Go over the points listed above and if there are no problems, re-assemble the Hit-Air carefully at your own risk.
It may not work as designed if there are external or internal damages.
