Collar

The collar is made of waterproof, functional fabric that provides the best possible protection for the built-in airbag system.










BOA solution

Adjustable size

The size can be adjusted by using the BOA solution which is well known within the sports industry to adjust different type of shoes but also used within the medical industry for prosthesis.

The BOA is attached to the collar at the outer inside facing neck centre. When making the collar to go from large to a smaller size you simply turn the wheel and it will make the fabric contract while at the same time it forms the natural round shape the collar has when it´s closed around the neck. To go back to a larger size, you just pull the wheel upwards and the tension releases.

Ergonomically designed

The collar is ergonomically designed with even weight distribution across the shoulders. It is slightly heavier at the back than at the front so that when cycling the weight is resting on your back.

Easy fit

The Hövding should always be fitted tightly on the user. This gives the best reading of movement from the sensor and is also keeps the Hövding in place.

Easy to clean

The collar isn’t washable but is protected from wear, sweat and dirt by the surrounding fabric shell. Any marks on the collar can be rubbed off carefully with a damp cloth.

Split seams

The chassi has three split seams that provide enough strength to keep the collar together during normal usage and rips during airbag inflation.

The split seams are positioned on the top of the collar and one on each side of the front part. Once the split seams are opened the chassi is designed to not affect the positioning of the airbag.
