Hövding picture

The idea of a new bicycle helmet was born in Sweden in 2005, when a new law made the use of bicycle helmets mandatory for children up to the age of 15 years old. This triggered a debate on whether bicycle helmets should also be made mandatory for adults. Two students of Industrial Design, Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin, decided to find out if it was possible to develop a bicycle helmet that people would actually be happy to wear – whether they had to or not. Their Master’s Thesis resulted in the concept of an airbag helmet.

    Very nice product. I fell on my bike a while ago, sideways hitting the curb with the side of my head. The Høvding helmet made it feel like I fell on a mattress. Much better than it would have been with a regular helmet, I guess I might have broken my jaw in one of those.

    The helmet works well and is comfortable that I recommend. However trying to deal with the costumer service in the ordering of a new one has been very trying. Emails and tweets for assistance keep going unanswered.

    My helmet activated without a reason. Their process for replacement is a nightmare: I filled in all the requested information on their webpage. After several days, I got a request to provide additional information, after which again, sevelar days later they informed me that actually I...

    Very poor aftersales service I bought two of these airbags. One has gone off accidentally and I have tried to contact Hovding three times with no response. The product is not cheap by any means and if we cannot get a replacement quickly then I feel that it is not worth investing in...

    Very happy so far after using for two weeks now. An added bonus car drivers don't think you are wearing a helmet, research suggests they'll give you more space

    Had a small accident recently that caused my Hovding to detonate - quite correctly. Used to be able to go to my local bike shop, then UK dealer but now have to go direct via their website. That being said, after reporting online, was given a "crash replacement discount code" to order...

    Fast delivery of the Hövding airbag, initial impressions are that seems like a great product, I was worried about it being too hot especially in the warmer days, but actually if you get a loosely fitting size, it’s no problem.

    Tried to order something delivered to Germany, because it was not available in the german subsidiary. Days after my order I've received a notice that they can't do it. The german subsidiary would be able to deliver but with 3 weeks delivery delay. Bad, slow service, inconvenient for...

    I trust my Hövding more than a standard helmet and it's nice to be able to cycle without my head overheating.

    I love the concept of the Høvding, but it is really uncomfortable to wear! I didn't use it at all in the winter because it really got in the way of my heavy parka. I started using it again in the Spring and it is still really uncomfortable, particularly with any kind of a hood and...

    It is comfortable and enjoyable to ride with and on top of that; saved my life already once. I use it every day and i only have to charge it every 1-1,5 month.
