The airbag helmet

This is an airbag helmet, designed by the Swedish Company of  Hövding Sverige Ab. What the designers had in mind, was to create a product that ensures the best possible safety measures and being  stylist at the same time. After analyzing video footage and conducted surveys on accidents and crasses, the company came up with this  hood-shaped, nylon airbag  which is encased within a neck collar and is automatically inflated in the event of a crash by a sensor system. The design and materials used for this product is saving upon resources, money and labor that would have gone to make two other different products, thus it is “greener”. Riders of the world have a look on this…, green, safe…
