Hövding x The Invisible Bicycle Helmet

by Elia

Introducing Hovding, a bicycle helmet unlike any other currently on the market. It’s ergonomic design turns an otherwise bulky safety item into a practical and fashionable accessory, subtle enough to blend in with what ever you’re wearing.

Worn around the neck, Hovding is a collar containing an airbag ready to eject should there be an accident. Shaped like a hood, the airbag pops out (much like a cars airbag) to completely surround and protect the head. The trigger mechanism is controlled by sensors which pick up the abnormal movements of a bicyclist upon impact in an accident. 

With a removable shell that you can change to match your outfit, and a range of new funky designs to fit your needs, Hovding is a truly revolutionary design that is sure to shake up the bicycle market. Watch the video below to see how it works!

“If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.” What started as an exam project  some 7 years ago turned into 10 million dollars of venture capital and years of research for Design students Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin.
