Hövding Airbag for Cyclists

Hövding airbag is praised in a study from Stanford University, providing 8x better protection than regular bicycle helmets. And the best news; it doesn’t mess up your hair 😉

This is how it works…

Hövding is the world’s first airbag for cyclists and is the result of intensive research since 2005. Through advanced sensors, it can sense the cyclist’s movement patterns and will react in case of an accident. The unique airbag will then inflate, fixate your neck and provide the world’s best shock absorption.

They are available online in three different sizes for €299

Volvo Life Paint

We all know the Swedish Volvo has a reputation when it comes to safety, both active as passive. And their care goes much further than just the safety of its driver and passengers. As Volvo says "The best way to survive a crash is not to crash"

They invented the incredibly cool Volvo Life Paint, to make cyclist better visible for drivers during the night. 

Life Paint is a reflective safety spray. Invisible by daylight, yet astonishingly light-reflective in the dark. Designed to react to a car’s headlights, the spray reflects light in the same direction as the light source – shining brightly and alerting drivers to your presence. Life Paint washes off, and will not affect the colour or surface of your chosen material. It will last for approximately one week after application, depending on what surface you spray onto, and how much you apply.

The spray is for sale in the UK at Volvo dealers
