The Commuter Bike Helmet That Lights Your Ride


Kickstarter has been the source of many outdoor gadgets and gizmos. We've written about several here on The Gear Shed, from seatpost bottle openers to sidecountry ski carriers to 360-degree video cameras and cases that convert your iPhone into a helmet cam.

Torch is one of the latest Kickstarter-funded projects to cross our desks. It's first product, the T1, is a bicycle helmet with integrated front and rear safety lights. The brainchild of 32-year-old industrial designer and avid urban cyclist Nathan Wills, the company saw 641 investors give $68,000, which far surpassed the original goal of the campaign.
