Meet The Future of Bike Helmets
Hövding Key Features
Airbag System: In the event of an accident, the patented airbag inflates in 0.1 second to form a hood that fixates your neck and provides 3 times better shock absorption than a traditional bicycle helmet.
Sensors and Algorithm: When activated, Hövding records the cyclist's movements 200 times a second. In the event of an accident, the cyclist's abnormal movement is detected and the airbag inflates.
Activation: Hövding is activated using a button on the zip pull. A sound and a light indicate that Hövding is activated.
Charging Port: When sound and light indicate a low battery level, Hövding is recharged by connecting the USB cable supplied in an external charger with a USB port. A fully charged battery lasts for approximately 9 hours of cycling.
Collar & Cover: The collar is made of waterproof, functional fabric to provide the best possible protection for the built-in airbag system. Different covers are available.
