is here. Designed as an airbag tucked away in a collar that the cyclist wears around his or her neck, the Hovding “invisible” helmet is designed with internal sensors that will trigger the airbags inside
the collar to deploy around the rider’s head when certain jerks, shakes and abrupt
movements indicate that an accident is happening. Invented by Sweedish designers, Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin, the Hovding provides an alternative to conventional bicycle helmets which cyclists find uncomfortable, unfashionable and not as safe as people may think. Hovding’s airbag technology provides higher safety standards.
The airbag is designed like a hood and constructed of ultra-strong nylon fabric that won’t rip when scraped against the ground. Hövding protects nearly all of the head, while leaving the field of vision open. The manufacturer represents that the inflated airbag covers a much larger area than a traditional bicycle helmet. Tests have shown that at 15 mph., the airbag helmet has three times better shock absorbing capabilities than a conventional helmet. However, the airbag may not get triggered and deploy when the cyclist encounters a direct head on hit such as from a low hanging tree branch or street sign.
The “invisible” helmet comes with a $535.00 price tag, but has yet to be approved for sale in the United States. However, the Hovding is being embraced by the cycling community in Sweeden and elsewhere in Europe and has earned Europe’s prestigious CE conformity label. One drawback with the present design is that the helmet may not be reused once the airbag is deployed. However, this may be a small price to pay for both vanity and safety and Hovding is working with insurance companies to make replacement helmets affordable.
Hats off, or should I say, “helmets off” to Hovding.
