Hovding Airbag Helmet
DescriptionThe Hovding cycling air bag is an innovative product that is designed to be an alternative to a traditional bike helmet. Now on its second generation, it is worn around the neck and is intended to act as an airbag which deploys in the event of a collision, encapsulating the riders head and preventing injury.
