The Skwal is the first commercially available helmet with LEDs to hit the market, although there are more with lights coming.
The LightMode full-face motorcycle helmet includes a electroluminescent (EL) element which wraps all the way around the helmet and lights up at the push of a button. It’s only available in North America at the moment, but you can buy the kits online from $US69.
There is also the Edison helmet which has built-in brake and indicator lights on the back that work in time with a connected BMW motorbike. The helmet will connect to the internet and has been in development since October and is not yet ready for road use yet.
Would you wear a helmet with lights and do you think it would make night riding safer?
