Charles Owen & Airowear Are At WEG!

We’ve made it to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (N.C.) for the World Equestrian Games! We’re thrilled to be at one of the biggest equestrian events of 2018 and are looking forward to meeting riders from across the world over the next two weeks.

We will be on site to offer professional helmet and Airowear body protector fittings throughout the competition, with special deals and exclusive custom options to be found! Be sure to stop by for a fitting, or bring your current helmet or body protector for a safety check.

We will have our stunning new AyrBrush With Pinstripe available. The latest in our line, this helmet blends technology with sophisticated design to create the ultimate in equestrian high fashion. Accented with exclusive coloured pinstripes, the AyrBrush With Pinstripe has an impact-absorbing shell strengthened with glass-reinforced fibers and a soft GRpx® technology harness that ensures unsurpassed stability and a comfortable fit. It features front and rear ventilation slots and has a smooth, matte finish created with an exclusive mark-resistant paint made specially in Britain for easy maintenance.

The AyrBrush With Pinstripe is kitemarked to PAS015:2011 and VG1 01.040 2014-12, CE marked to VG1 01.040 2014-12, and certified by SEI to ASTM F1163-15. It is available in seven striking colour combinations: Black With Silver, Black With Rose Gold, Black With Black Chrome, Navy With Silver, Navy With Rose Gold, Brown With Silver and Brown With Rose Gold. We will have our full size range available throughout the competition: 6 5/8 – 7 1/2 (54 – 61 cm) and in Round Fit in sizes 6 7/8 – 7 1/4 (or 56-59 cm).

If you are interested in the most comprehensive body protection available, Airowear will have the new AyrPS body protector on stand. This dual layer air protection system pairs a detachable inflatable AirShell tested to Satra M38:Issue 3 February 2015 air-vest standard with the lightweight BETA 2009 Level 3 AirMesh2 Body Protector, which will soon have the new BETA 2018 Level 3 standard approval. With an additional set of zips underneath the front placket that are compatible with the inflatable AirShell airlayer, the AirMesh2 offers riders the opportunity to effortlessly zip on additional protection. Together, they create the AyrPS to offer the most highly ventilated double-layer protection in Airowear’s range.

We are also looking forward to cheering on our #teamcharlesowen riders who will be competing. We have riders from six countries in four disciplines who will be wearing our most up to date innovations in rider safety! We hope that everyone has a wonderful and safe competition. We’ll be cheering our riders on and following their successes over the next two weeks, so be sure to watch this space for updates.
