Hövding offers the worlds 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 airbag in Hövding 3 is superior in protecting the brain from rotational force and also fixates your neck in the event of an accident. Hövding 3 offers the best shock absorbing ability on the market and, according to scientific studies, is up to 8x better than traditional bicycle helmets.
As soon as Hövding 3 is activated, the advanced algorithm reads your movements 200 times/second. If you would find yourself in an accident, the airbag inflates in 0,1 second, offering superior protection.
Hövding 3 is equipped with a BOA adjustment wheel, which allows you to easily adjust the size of your Hövding 3 for optimal fit. This makes Hövding 3 comfortable to use regardless of season and clothing.
Despite advanced world-class technology, Hövding 3 is easy to use. Pull up the zipper, jump on your bike and activate your Hövding, and you are ready to go. As soon as Hövding is activated, an audio melody is played which lets you know that you are now protected by the world’s safest head protection.
The battery in Hövding 3 holds up to 15 hours of active cycling per charge. Hövding is charged using a USB-C port, the same connector that most mobile phones are charged with today. A charging cable is included in the package.
By connecting your Hövding 3 to your smartphone, the Hövding App can automatically notify selected contacts in the event of a bicycle accident, notify you of battery status and inform you about personal and collective bicycle data.
Hövding 3 is sold with a black cover that protects the collar against dirt and wear.
