A true innovation in the world of cycling! The Hövding bike helmet is worn around the neck like a scarf and, in case of a fall, inflates like an airbag, protecting nearly all of the head against the impact.

Hövding is like no other bicycle helmet. It’s ergonomically designed, handy, safe and practically invisible! This innovative bike helmet is wrapped around the neck like a subtle scarf. The “scarf” contains an airbag that inflates in the event of an accident. The airbag is designed like a hood that protects nearly all of the head. Its release mechanism is triggered by advanced sensors that can sense the cyclist’s movement patterns and will react in case of an accident. The scarf is the only visible element of this invention and its cover is easy to remove and wash, or can be changed for a different one to match your outfit. Furthermore, the Hövding is a handy accessory that is easy to transport and takes up less space in your handbag or backpack than a regular bicycle helmet.

IMPORTANT: In the event of an accident, Galaxus provides a crash replacement programme, with which a new Hövding airbag can purchased for CHF 150.– (excl. VAT). The same process applies to the unlikely event of a false activation. For further information, please consult “warranty and return” for the respective product.
