Rear bike light and Production Update [PHOTOS]
So much to tell. Here we go!
What should our rear bike light look light?
We partnered with GOOD to create a rear bike light that is a "Product of the People". Of the three designs, which one's the best? Please vote for your favorite.
The Defender Production Update
The factory is wrapping up the tooling next week. That means Brad is going to get busy with highly accelerated lifetime testing (HALT). This includes: temp testing, shock/vibration, humidity, salt sprays, push-button testing, and more. We are on track to ship in late June!
