How Hövding works - The invisible helmet for bicyclists
"…a bicycle helmet unlike any other currently on the market. It's ergonomic, it's practical, it complies with all the safety requirements, & it's also subtle & blends in with what else you are wearing.

…a collar for bicyclists, worn around the neck… contains a folded up airbag that you'll only see if you happen to have an accident. The airbag is shaped like a hood, surrounding and protecting the bicyclist's head. The trigger mechanism is controlled by sensors which pick up the abnormal movements of a bicyclist in an accident.

The actual collar is the visible part of the invention. It's covered by a removable shell that you can change to match your outfit, and we'll be launching new designs all the time. Hövding is a practical accessory that's easy to carry around, it's got a great-looking yet subtle design, and it will save your life."
