Hövding offers the world´s best shock absorption capacity and consists of two parts, a collar and a cover.

The collar encloses the airbag system that protects the head and is made of black, waterproof, dirt-repellent functional fabric that rests comfortably around your neck. It is easy to put on, with a centre front zip.

There is a hook on the inside of the collar that allows you to hang up your Hövding.

The collar is supplied with a black basic cover which is made of durable functional fabric that protects your Hövding against dirt and wear. The cover is attached to the collar by simply zipping it around.

You can easily change the appearance of your Hövding, by purchasing an extra cover for it. All our covers have different appearances and functionalities. Cover produced för Hövding 1.0 cannot be used with Hövding 2.0.

Can I still use my Hövding once the airbag has been triggered?

If your Hövding has been in an accident, it can't be used again. If your Hövding has been deployed, please contact us. In some cases, the accident data recorded in the black box inside the collar can be interesting and valuable to us in our on-going development work.
Some insurance companies cover part of the expense of a new Hövding after you have had an accident. Contact your insurance company to hear how they handle your case. Some countries have a crash replacement program, ask your retailer for more information.

Can I use it when riding any bike?

Hövding is designed for standard bike models and for mini bicycles and folding bikes.
Hövding is not designed for special bikes such as tandems, unicycles, etc. Cycling means urban cycling and cycling on main roads, but not extreme cycling such as BMX, off-road cycling, mountain biking and trick cycling.

How do I charge my Hövding?

You charge your Hövding using the USB cable supplied, either by connecting it to your computer or by using an external charger with a USB port such as those supplied with all smartphones/tablets.
Please note that if you have Windows 8 or 8.1, you cannot charge your Hövding in your computer due to a change in USB management.

Do I have to restrict my movements when I’m wearing Hövding so the airbag isn’t triggered by mistake?

There is an on/off switch on the zip tag that activates Hövding when it's attached to the right-hand side of the collar. Similarly, Hövding is turned off when you unclip the on/off button. When Hövding is switched off, the airbag can't inflate.
Only switch your Hövding on once you are wearing it, immediately before going out on your bike. Your Hövding is designed to protect you while cycling and it must, therefore, be switched off when you are not cycling. You can move exactly the same way you usually do when you're cycling.

Can I wear it on any kind of bike?

Hövding is only intended to be worn when cycling and is not designed for use when riding a moped, skiing, wearing inline skates or skateboarding. Cycling means cycling in urban environments and on main roads, but not extreme cycling such as BMX, off-road cycling, mountain biking and trick cycling.

Which accessories can I wear with my Hövding?

When the airbag is triggered, the pressure from the airbag splits open the upper seam of the collar, allowing the hood to inflate around your head. This means it’s important that you keep the area above this seam free and don’t cover it with a scarf or similar on top. But you can still wear a shawl or a scarf outside or inside your Hövding.
