Bike lights can be a pain. You have to attach them every time you ride, and more often than not, you can forget to take them off, making easy pickings for thieves. This solves the problem: it’s a bicycle helmet that doubles as a headlight.
The Torch T2 has 10 LED lights built into the front and back, so you can see and be seen. It’s fully certified by the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) and features the CE mark, confirming it’s safe for use.
Protecting the lights is a shatter-proof polycarbonate lens. This not only keeps the LEDs safe from harm, it also diffuses the light, making it easier to be seen from the side.
You don’t need to replace the batteries either.
It will also tell you when the battery dips below 50 per cent, so you don’t nip out unlit.

Like a standard bike light it has four different light functions, including two flashing ones.
It’s very reasonably priced too, at $100 (£68). It’s passed its funding goal and will ship in July.
