The world's safest bicycle helmet isn’t a helmet. Hövding 3 is an airbag for cyclists that is worn around the neck like a collar. In the event of an accident, the airbag inflates and forms around the head and neck like a protective hood.
According to scientific studies, the airbag technology is 8 x safer than traditional bicycle helmets.
Sensors inside the collar read the cyclist's movement pattern 200 times per second.
In the event of an accident, the airbag inflates in 0.1 second.
The Hövding comes in one size and can be adjusted to a suitable and comfortable fit using the Boa dial.
Hövding 3 can be connected to smartphone via Bluetooth for access to additional features, such as:
The cover that encloses the airbag is made of a black, waterproof and dirt-repellent functional fabric. The front zipper makes Hövding easy to take on and off. Activation is simple using the front tab.
Hövding comes with a black basic cover in a durable functional fabric that protects the collar against dirt and wear. Hövding must always be used with either a basic cover or a seasonal cover.
Hövding is approved for persons over 15 years with head size (circumference) 52–59 cm (20.5–23.2”) and neck dimensions up to a maximum of 45 cm (17.7”) in circumference.
The Hövding must only be used for cycling on two wheeled bicycles (standard models) in urban environments and on country roads.
The Hövding airbag helmet is CE marked after undergoing an extensive process for approval by Technical Research Institute of Sweden*
CE marking is required for a cycle helmet to be able to be sold in Europe and certifies that the helmet complies with the requirements laid down in the EU Directive for personal protective equipment. All types of helmets must provide protection for the head in the form of shock absorption and force distribution in an accident. Complete protection in the event of an accident and functioning during normal use are basic criteria for CE marking.
The helmet must also be designed so as to cause no unnecessary risks, meaning there must be no sharp edges et cetera which could injure the wearer. The environmental tolerance criteria for helmets dictate that they must be able to withstand moisture and work in heat and cold, and also when subjected to the sun’s ultraviolet light. *present RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden
