Hövding Magazine / Hövding stories

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.

On Monday afternoon 27th April 2020 I went for a bicycle ride with my sister to collect wild garlic. I decided to climb a steep path which was muddy. Halfway up I started to fall backwards into some moss-covered rocks. As I fell there was a huge bang inside my head, and I felt as if I had broken my skull. I quickly realized that it was the Hövding saving my life!
