The first ever bicycle airbag is making the streets safer for cyclists and motorcyclists. The simple device releases an airbag over the cyclists’ head to protect them against falls or impact.

The wind breaker-like device fits comfortably over the rider’s neck and expands in the event of a collision. In 1/10th of a second, over 200 sensors can detect the movement from the impact. In that short amount of time, the hood releases potentially saving your life.

The Swedish design released a few years ago, although now they plan to sell the product across the globe. Check out their video to find out more about basic Hövding tech.
