About this project

I've been riding motorcycles for over 20 years. But in 2012, I was in an accident that changed my life. It was a BIG wake up call. Because the majority of motorcycle accidents occur while riders are making lane changes and turning, I couldn’t stop thinking about how we could better be seen by signaling our intentions of lane changes and turns to other drivers/riders and motorists on the road.  

That's how SignalWear Smart Motorcycle Gloves. Our Patent Pending Technology is the first of its kind that will help riders BE SEEN and SAVE LIVES!

As seen on the Discovery Channel:

Anyone who rides a motorcycle knows the feeling of freedom you get when you’re cruising down the road. There's really nothing like it. However, there are risks and dangers that all riders face. SignalWear Smart Gloves help solve one of those major hazards. 

 

 

Adverse Conditions & Riding at Night

70% of all motorcycle accidents can be attributed to drivers and surrounding motorists not seeing motorcyclists.

Visibility and being seen (especially in adverse weather & at night) represents one of the biggest safety problems motorcyclists face when they ride. Per vehicle mile traveled, a motorcyclist’s risk of a fatal crash is 35 times greater than a passenger car driver’s -- especially when changing lanes and when making turns. 

BE SAFER, & BE SEEN with SignalWear Smart Motorcycle Gloves. Activate super bright LED's so surrounding motorists can see you and are aware of your lane changes and turns. SignalWear gloves gives you one more tool to help us be safer and be seen. 

Whether you're a motorcycle enthusiast or have a family member or friend who is, help them be safer on the road with the SignalWear Smart Motorcycle Gloves.

1) Thumb Touch

LANE CHANGERS - You can press your thumb on your forefinger, palm or handlebars to activate the super bright LED's and release to turn off.

2) Twist of Your Wrist  

LANE CHANGERS - Simply twist your wrist so that your hand is vertical to road and the LED's are automatically activated. Then deactivate by twisting your wrist so that your palm is horizontal to the road.

 

We need your help to unlock our patent pending features and these levels.  

3) SignalWear, SignalBox (Flex Goal of $100K)

SignalWear SignalBox - Connects to your bikes existing turn signals to wirelessly activate gloves LED's

We've made it easy to hard wire our SignalWear, SignalBox to your motorcycle’s existing turn signals, so all you have to do is use the left or right toggle switch and activate the respective gloves.  

4) The Navigators (Stretch Goal of $250K)

With Your Help We Can Unlock "The Navigators" Built in GPS
With Your Help We Can Unlock "The Navigators" Built in GPS

With your help, we can introduce our Patent Pending, Smart Signal GPS Technology. This allows you to sync your gloves to our SignalWear APP and input your destination and the gloves will vibrate your hands and light up to guide you to your destination. The SignalWear App will also track your trip so you can save it, send it or share it on social media.  

 

 

Our primary goal is to give riders more tools to have a safe riding experience. SignalWear Smart Motorcycle Gloves ARE NOT meant to take the place of your existing blinkers. They're another tool that you have to help other motorists SEE YOU.  

Because visibility is our primary goal we encourage you to use SignalWear Gloves along with the proper hand signals for left and right hand turns.

CUSTOMS & DUTIES INFORMATION

We cannot mark as gift, this is illegal so we will not be able to do this.

For US and Canadian backers, we will pay for the VAT and GST charges. For all other countries, we are unable to cover VAT and GST, but will do our best to get it to you in the most cost-efficient way possible and any savings we can discover, we will pass on to you.

As many of you know, our terms of sale are CIF destination. This means that we pay all freight, but none of the duties or taxes except for US and Canadian residents. Since we are shipping these products all over the world, it is impossible for us to build in the various duties, VAT and GST tax for each location through Kickstarter.

The link below will help you in calculating duties. Remember to convert the US dollars to your local currency:

REFUND POLICY

100% pledge back guarantee = you have 7 days after the end of the campaign to receive a full refund. After 7 days, we will start placing the POs for the products and will NOT issue any refunds or returns.

EXCHANGE & RETURN POLICY

There will be no exchanges or returns. If you have a factory defect, you may apply for your warranty and we will send you a new product. See warranty guidelines below.

SHIPPING POLICY

Double check your address. If our shipping carrier attempts delivery to you and you don't get it because you’re not there, we were provided the incorrect address, or you moved without notifying us, and the package returns back to our warehouse, we will not be able to send you another product.

When you receive your tracking #, please keep an eye out for the package.

WARRANTY

Our products come with a 90-day warranty starting on the day of receipt. You will need to apply for RA # and pay for the shipping to send your product to us. When we have received your product with the associated RA# attached and the product truly has a defect, we will fix or replace your product and refund your shipping.

Risks and challenges

CHALLENGE - When mass producing any product, manufacturers require a MOQ or Minimum Order Quantity. The more backers we have, the more product we can order and in turn, the better pricing we can offer. That's where you and your friends come in. We have to reach our goal to meet the MOQ and provide you the highest quality product at the best possible pricing.

SOLUTION - As you can see from the videos and pictures, we have fully functional prototypes. We started working months in advance building relationships with manufacturers that fit our company's high quality standards and philosophies. Once we reach our base goal, we'll place the MOQ to ensure that you receive your orders in a timely manner.

What you are seeing in our videos and pictures are prototypes. The gloves you receive will be even better!

Please feel to reach out to us if you have any concerns at support@signalwear.co or leave a message in Kickstarter for us.

Thanks for your support!
