EDIT: 7/27/12 - We have successfully doubled up on brighter LEDs and developed a newly structured fiber optic that illuminates brighter than its original prototype. Please keep in mind the battery life is compromised. We believe that the brighter output of luminosity is step forward into making HALO an even safer product. Thanks to everyone for the continuous support!

Fast Company: "It keeps you safe and makes your backside look like some sort of modern art project as you glide through the streets:"

Uncrate: "Sure, bike reflectors can help you stay visible — as long as you're actually on your bike. Only the Halo Belt ($75) can keep you visible even if you fall off. This multipurpose, LED-laden accessory emits its light though a custom designed thermoplastic polyurethane fiber optic, which gives it an awesome Tron-style look while allowing it to be worn as a standard belt, over the shoulder, or flung wildly at a narcotic-fueled rave."

The Awesomer: "Designed to improve safety for cycling and other nighttime activities, the HALO belt is a bright, wearable illuminated strip, alerting drivers (or other ravers) to your presence in the dark."

Cool Material: "Perfect for making sure half asleep drivers notice you on the roadways, HALO is also a nice way of making sure your bike light doesn’t get jacked when you run in the store. Unless someone steals the clothing off your body, in which case, you’ve got bigger fish to fry. Like finding pants." 

Bless This Stuff: "The belt is a great prop for night cycling, it will definitely improve your safety on the road."

TrendHunter: "The futuristic Halo Belt provides a stylish way to stay safe at night."

LazyTechGuys: "The HALO belt works as a seamless solution between wearing your favorite jeans and providing visual awareness to drivers during nighttime biking or standing behind the turret of a Warthog."

What is HALO?

HALO was designed originally as a sport safety belt that can be used on a daily basis. "We wanted to create world's first multi-purpose illuminating LED sport safety belt that also looks good. The great thing about HALO is it looks like an ordinary everyday belt." - Vincent Ng - Founder

Why and How?

Cycling - More often than not, bike lights are stolen off the bicycle itself and reflectors only show visibility when a light source is projected onto it. However, with HALO, LED lighting emits through thermoplastic polyurethane fiber optics utilizing a greater surface area of visibility. HALO creates illumination with a simple design and it always stays on the owner because it acts as an ordinary belt.

Be creative with HALO!

However, HALO isn't only limited to biking. HALO can be used in a variety of different ways, from changing a tire on the side of the road, jogging at night, crossing the street, or even as a fashion statement at parties/raves it's overall purpose is for visibility. It can also be used as marketing promotions for different companies or sports teams.

General Information

The HALO is powered by LEDs that emits lighting through a custom designed thermoplastic polyurethane fiber optic. The TPU fiber optic is then in-housed in premium structured polyester/nylon belt with a quicksnap release buckle.

The battery life can last up to 75 non-consecutive hours depending on the flash mode. If it is on solid mode, It last for about 20 hours straight. It has the same battery life of most bike lights. You can click the HALO logo to turn On, Strobe, Flash, Solid, and Off. It is located about 3" inches from the QuickSnap buckle. HALO uses standard CR2025 batteries and are relatively cheap (about $1-3USD).  (see below picture for comparison of final battery housing vs. original battery housing)

HALO will retail $85+tax. However, kickstarters can pre-order HALO for $75 with tax, shipping, and lots of extra rewards included!

The HALO is "one size fits most". We have customized the belt to accommodate women's size zero to men's size 38 in our patented design.

HALO is going to be available in three colors; red, green, blue and yellow. There is also three light modes; strobe, flash, and solid.
