Put off cycling because you don’t like wearing a helmet?
A new Swedish invention means there’s no longer any excuse.
The Hövding is an inflatable “invisible helmet” that slips around your neck in a deflated state, leaving the head exposed.
The Hövding then cushions your head from potentially brain-damaging impacts. It only takes one-tenth of a second to inflate.
Sweden made wearing bike helmets compulsory 15 years ago.
“To people like us, who wouldn’t be seen dead in a polystyrene helmet, the thought that we might be forced to wear one by law was cause for concern,” Hövding creators Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin say on their website.
