  • Product information
  • 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 protects up to 8x better than traditional plastic 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:

    1) selected ICE contacts are automatically notified in the event of a bicycle accident.
    2) opportunity for analysis of personal and collective bicycle data.
    3) battery status with charging reminder.

    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.
