The Hövding airbag helmet is CE marked after undergoing an extensive process for approval by Technical Research Institute of Sweden*

CE Marking

CE marking is required for a cycle helmet to be able to be sold in Europe and certifies that the helmet complies with the requirements laid down in the EU Directive for personal protective equipment. All types of helmets must provide protection for the head in the form of shock absorption and force distribution in an accident. Complete protection in the event of an accident and functioning during normal use are basic criteria for CE marking.

The helmet must also be designed to cause no unnecessary risks, meaning there must be no sharp edges et cetera which could injure the wearer. The environmental tolerance criteria for helmets dictate that they must be able to withstand moisture and work in heat and cold, and when subjected to the sun’s ultraviolet light.
