Cycling Airbag, Sweden

by | Aug 8, 2013 | Europe, Technological, Transport

Here at TC we love our bikes. It is after all the future (or depending how you look at it, a return to the past)!

But as we look across the globe, we’re also seeing a growing debate around cycling safety. More specifically the wearing of a helmet. In most circumstances not wearing a helmet is considered an offence. But what if the helmet was in fact flexible, comfortable and sexy? Not even a helmet as such, but, an airbag?

The Hövding is just that! An airbag for cyclists. Designed by Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin, the Hövding has just recieved $10 million in venture capital and changing attitudes towards safe cycling around the world!
