Chief. The world's safest helmet is not a helmet.

Chief 3. The world's safest head protection you wear around your neck like a collar. In the event of an accident, the airbag inflates and protects your head. The next generation of Swedish security technology is here. The collar that encloses the airbag is made of a black, waterproof and dirt-repellent functional fabric. A zipper on the front makes Hövding easy to take on and off. The Hövdingen comes with a black base shell that protects against dirt and wear. The chief should always be used with a shell. By changing the shell, Hövding can be adapted to personal style and taste. The shells have different designs and functionality and are available in several variants. Hövding is the world's first airbag for cyclists. Through advanced sensors and a unique algorithm, Hövding senses the cyclist's movement pattern and reacts by triggering an airbag in 0.1 second in the event of an accident. The airbag covers your head and fixes your neck to give you the best protection on the market, up to 8 times better than a traditional helmet.
  • Sensors inside the collar read the cyclist's movement pattern 200 times per second
  • In the event of an accident, the airbag inflates in 0.1 second
  • The size can be adjusted with an adjustment knob (BOA)
  • 8x safer than a traditional bicycle helmet

Science

Concussion is one of the most common causes of brain damage. Dr. David Camarillo leads a research team at Stanford University that tries to understand how concussions occur and how to protect yourself. In 2016, tests were carried out which showed that Hövding's unique design - an airbag that at the time of the accident expands and becomes both thicker and softer than a traditional helmet - reduces the risk of concussion up to eight times, while the risk of skull fracture disappears almost completely. The airbag is designed as a hood and made of durable nylon that can be scratched against asphalt. Chief protects almost the entire head, but at the same time leaves the field of vision free. The area covered by the inflated airbag is significantly larger than on traditional bicycle helmets and adapted to existing accident statistics. Tests show that the protection is at its best where it is needed most. The airbag fixes the neck and creates a very soft and gentle shock-absorbing ability. The pressure is kept constant for several seconds and can therefore withstand several blows to the head during the same accident. Then the airbag begins to slowly empty of gas. The gas generator that fills the airbag with gas in Hövding is a so-called cold gas generator with helium gas. It is placed in a container in the collar of the cyclist's back.
