New in our shop: Hövding- Airbag for cyclists

12/02/2019 News

Hövding is the world’s first airbag for urban cyclists. Through the advanced sensors and unique algorithm Hövding detects the cyclist’s movement patterns and reacts and inflates in 0,1 seconds in case of an accident. The specialized airbag inflates to cover your head and fixates the neck to provide you with the best protection on the market. A study from the Stanford University proves that the Hövding protects eight times better than traditional bicycle helmets.

Concussion is one of the major causes of brain injury. Hövding reduces the risk of concussion up to eight times and eliminates almost completely the risk of skull fracture. It is designed like a hood and made in an ultra-strong nylon fabric that won’t rip when scraped against the ground. The inflated airbag covers a much larger area than a traditional cycle helmet and is designed according to current accident statistics.

The airbag fixates the neck and provides extremely soft and gentle shock absorption. The pressure remains constant for several seconds, making it able to withstand multiple head impacts during the same accident. After that, the airbag slowly starts to deflate.
