Hi Friends,

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. 

Much Love, 

Nathan Wills

      I received an email, claiming that my RMA was received. I did not RMA the helmet, I didn't even receive it. Can you please have a look what happened to the order?

      Totoro, if it doesn't fit we will happily offer a refund if the helmet is not damaged. Also, we have decided to increase the size range for all future helmets so if you do return, we hope you'll consider us in the future once we're bigger!

      I received mine and it looks pretty good. The larger sized one is still too small for my head. Major pinching when I wear it. :(

      What about us who got a faulty Midnight T1? Are we getting the return label soon?

      +1 for me as well.

      Hi Anders,

      our helmets that are shipping out of the UK are still in customs and we'll begin shipping replacements once they get there. We'll keep you Midnight's updated as that process begins.

      Great! I think an earlier post said that we would get a tracking number... should I worry if I haven't received one?

      Nathan,
      It's been worth the wait. Will definitely post a pic when I get mine...just received the confirmation email! Cheers!
