HÖVDING 3 Cycling Airbag
Cyclists have another reason to feel safe every time they go for a ride. The Hovding 3 is an ingenious solution that draws inspiration from the world’s best automotive airbag systems. Whether you’re biking through the traffic gridlock in the city or the uneven terrain of the backcountry, expect the Hovding 3 to protect you where it matters most.
The Hovding 3 is not a bicycle helmet. It is a collar that one can wear around his or her neck. It fits bicycle riders who have a neck circumference of 13.4 to 17.7 inches and a head circumference of 20.5 to 23.2 inches. A Boa adjustment wheel allows the wearer to adjust the fit of the collar.
This bike safety device comes with a unique airbag deployment system. It features different sensors that trigger the airbag within 0.1 second. This inflates the airbag, forming a protective hood around the neck and the head. This makes the Hovding 3 up to 8 times safer than conventional bicycle helmets.
Hovding also includes Bluetooth connectivity. It can connect to a mobile device with Bluetooth functionality. It notifies specific contact persons in case of an accident. It also provides a number of cycling-related information. The sensors keep track of movement patterns of up to 200 times each second. It is perfect for those who want to stay abreast of their cycling performance. The device also comes with a charging reminder related to its battery status.
Underneath the dirt-repellent and waterproof fabric is a 15-hour battery system. One can recharge the unit using an included USB-C cable. Activating the device is as easy as pressing the front tab.
The Hovding 3 is a cyclist’s best protection from potential head injuries. It is smart enough to connect to your mobile device, guaranteeing a more meaningful ride.
