Bright Helmet Integrates 360º Visibility w/ Molded LED Strips

BrightHelmet is a new line of lids for kids and adults with LED strips molded into the shell for 360º visibility. Judging by the technical features (or lack of), they’re aimed at the casual commuter. It’s a nifty idea, and the kids helmets include a lighter duty green buckle that requires less force to pop open as a safety precaution for kids who keep their helmets on when running around playgrounds. I hadn’t heard of the issue, but apparently the straps can get caught and pose a serious health risk. So, the parent can choose which buckle to install.

They’re out of Sweden and come from the same brand that brought you the WiggyStyle stick-on helmet mohawks.

Their US “distributor” is a search engine. Bumps to ebay. LOL!

Cool Idea but the helmets, especially the adult verson, are hideous. Would be great on a nice helmet.

I agree with Adam12. They should license this to Giro, Bell, etc.

Awesome! I think these helmets are very cool and a great idea, My kids and I ride at dusk and sometimes at night, these helmets would be great! Where can I buy one here in the U.S.A.? Thanks
