Travel isn't just about jumping from plane to plane. Once you are in your location, getting from A-B can be tricky.
That's why renting a bicycle is a popular mode of transport. But it can be dangerous if you don't have the right protection.
So to ensure my safety, I researched the Hövding Airbag Bicycle Helmet.
What is a Hövding Helmet?
This is an innovative piece of kit perfect for travellers.
You wear it around your neck if it is a scarf. When it senses collision, it activates the built-in airbag that transforms it into a helmet. Check out the video below to see it in action:
How the Hövding Helmet Works
The airbag has the design of a hood made of strong nylon fabric. It's durability prevents rips when scraping against a pavement. The airbag is designed to protect the head without obstructing the field of vision.
The airbag which is fixed around the cyclists neck provides shock absorption. It inflates using helium from the back of the collar and can withstand multiple impacts within a single incident. It will then slowly deflate after the accident.
It is designed based on accident statistics to endeavour to improve upon the safety of a standard bike helmet.
Where to buy a Hövding Airbag Bicycle Helmet
