Are you sure those cars coming behind you are going to see you?
Do you spend more time looking BACK than where you're going?
You need a Rear BOARDLIGHT™
Does that car up ahead see you coming? Or is it going to pull out right in front of you? Or make a left turn right in front of you?
You need a Front BOARDLIGHT™
3 High Brightness LEDs make the BOARDLIGHT™ easily visible half a mile away!
With a booster circuit, using the latest surface mount technology, a single AA battery drives the LEDs at constant brightness for about 15 hours. In FLASH mode, the AA battery lasts about 22 hours.
Disclaimer: Some cities have ordinances prohibiting any skateboarding after sunset, or sometimes 30 minutes after sunset. So, just because these lights will make you SAFER, that does NOT mean it is legal or safe to board when it's getting dark. These lights are great to be seen in daylight, but if you choose to skate when it's dark, you do so at your own risk.
Skateboarding can be very dangerous; not being seen is the biggest danger.
Many people die every year because somebody did not see a skateboarder.
See a memorial list created for many of those who have died: In Memory
BOARDLIGHT™ would make boarding safer.
But funds are not yet available to go to production. An attempt was made to raise funds on Kickstarter, but there was not enough support.
PLEASE contact us if you have suggestions that would make this product more popular or if you represent or know of a company willing to partner with or sponsor BOARDLIGHT™.
