My Hövding story– Dirk
Hövding has over 300 000 users spread over a number of different countries and our airbag helmet has protected thousands of people in bicycle accidents so far. Below are some of all the thousands of Hövding stories out there.
– Why don’t you take your beautiful helmet, now that is cold outside?
– Well, I have bought the Hövding for the unrivalled safety it provides.
That day, I couldn’t know how right I was. Minutes later, a car which was blocking the cycling lane turned left and hit my bicycle. The Hövding opened before I was hitting the drivers’ door while my front wheel was diving under the car. The impact was so massive that my shoulder broke completely after crashing onto the tarmac. No scratch on face, neck or scull. A helmet couldn’t have done the trick in this multi-impact accident. Hövding simply saved my life.
”Hövding simply saved my life.”
Did you in any way feel any discomfort when your Hövding inflated?
Not at all! The Hövding inflated quickly and comfortably. My hi-vis-cap stayed put and its inflation sound was far gentler than a car‘s airbag inflating.
Why do you think people are sceptical about wearing a helmet?
It‘s a bit of laziness and well-wishing. The only guardian angel who is always there is your Hövding. If you‘re hit without seeing it coming, it‘s your last resort to survive without brain damage. In a multi-impact accident which is typical for a cyclist, a helmet won‘t survive the first impact. And only the Hövding avoids breaking your neck, too.
Would you recommend Hövding?
I actually do recommend the Hövding. Now that I’ve had a first-hand experience, ever more so: Simply the best investment in my life.
