*Bicycle accidents reported to Hövding.

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!

 

Did you feel any discomfort when your Hövding deployed?
I felt no discomfort as my Hövding deployed. Despite my wearing hearing aids, the sound was acceptable.

 

Have you changed your cycling behavior after the accident?
No, I have not changed my cycling behavior after the accident.

 

Why do you think some people are skeptical about wearing a bicycle helmet?
I understand that some people are skeptical about wearing helmets, thinking that they will never be involved in an accident. Please always protect your head.

 

Would you recommend Hövding?
I would 100% recommend Hövding as it definitely saved me from serious injury.
