Hi Torch Bearers,
It has been an exciting year here at Torch! We've been working hard on new products and have been thankful for all of your feedback since receiving your T1 helmets. You spoke and we listened, so now we want to give you the opportunity to be one of the first to get a T2. With the new tooling already complete, production begins in just a couple of weeks. Delivery will begin this July so this time there will not be a ridiculous wait, we knew you were thinking it!
The T2 has some great new features including a battery level indicator and 3 times the battery life. Check it out here!
Although we have moved to a different platform for our pre-sales this time, we know our original Kickstarter backers are what made it all posible, so thank you and as always, ride on!
First, we at Torch would like to wish you all a happy holiday season! It has been some time since I have posted an update here on Kickstarter and my team and I truly hope you are enjoying the product we all worked so hard to get to market with your support.
With that said, this will be my last post for this Kickstarter campaign. We have begun to grow our business and team and will be moving all of our communication, supply and sales channels internally.
If you would still like to get updates (only when there's something interesting to share) you can add yourself to our mailing list on our site at torchapparel.com or keep up more frequently on our Facebook , Twitter or Instagram.
Otherwise we would like to thank all of our original backers one last time for your amazing support, patience and enthusiasm as we worked through Torch's first ever product to make it into production over a year ago. We have exciting things to come in 2015 and hope that you'll keep in touch.
Nathan Wills and Team Torch!
There is so much I want to say, but as you all know I will be composing a small book of the entire process from concept ( a year before Kickstarter) to the delivery of Kickstarter (finishing next week). All in all, it was just over two years from concept to delivery and although we could have done it quicker if we hadn't of made the changes requested during the Kickstarter campaign, I'm so glad that we did. Your requests and feedback have created a much better product!
As this Kickstarter campaign closes and we shift our focus to growing as a brand I want to offer my most sincere "Thank you forever!" Each and everyone of you have impacted my life in more ways than you could imagine. This brand will be expanding quickly, but I want to make it clear that it never would have happened without all of you, even those of you who have given me a hard time since I was one day late! Thank you. You did not simply buy a helmet, you helped create a solution for cyclists that is now available in 34 countries, not only offers amazing protection during an impact, but hopes to help prevent one and still looks good during the day.
I will continue to post on Kickstarter and answer questions, but would encourage all of you to interact with us on a more timely fashion through our website or one of our other media outlets which can be reached through our website torchapparel.com.
Now that we have shipped all US Kickstarter orders and the international orders will be going out next week, I'd like to be the first to post a selfie. Send us yours and we'd love to share it.
