As someone who has always wanted a motorcycle (ITS NOT A PHASE, MOM!), I am always excited to see new improvements in terms of motorcycle safety. That way, I can present my parents with a Powerpoint presentation replete with all the ways I can “safely” ride a motorcycle. So, when I read that the Whistler Group, Inc., introduced a new Helmet Safety Light called the MotoGlo, I was pleased as punch. Do the kids still say that?
Basically, it’s a light that attaches to any 3/4 or full face helmet. And yes, you probably guessed that it’s a light meant to make riders more visible while riding (although I’m sure Daft Punk would find other ways to use it). Features include helmet height running, braking, and turn signal LED lighting, as well as digital wireless communication. I’m assuming that means Bluetooth capabilities for handsfree calling. The light can last about 12 hours on one charge, and it’s charged via USB cable.
The light, itself, looks pretty cool if I do say so myself! Safety can be fun, kids!
Steve Sanders, Product Development Manager at Whistler, said in a press release:
“The MotoGlo is literally head and shoulders above traditional motorcycle lighting. The increased rider visibility to following drivers improves everyone’s safety.”
If you’re interested, the MotoGlo will be available for purchase this month for an MSRP of $139.95.
