ROAME Zeros: Wireless Blinker/Brake Light Motorcycle Shoes

$40,039

226

The world’s most comfortable, stylish, and technologically advanced pair of motorcycle shoes. ROAME Zeros' have seamlessly integrated turn signal and brake light technology which wirelessly connect to your motorcycle. 

Motorcycle shoes should be safe, but they shouldn’t have to be uncomfortable, bulky, inconvenient, and unfashionable.

We’ve spent the last three years designing the ultimate motorcycle shoe, so you can ride safely without giving up comfort and style. The ROAME Zeros are designed to be a motorcycle shoe that fits into your everyday lifestyle.

By using the newest technology for impact protection, integrating electronics for enhanced rider visibility, and re-thinking the way shoes are made, the ROAME Zeros are everything a motorcycle shoe should be. 

See a demonstration of D3O's Impact Protection in the video below!

The ROAME Zeros are a fusion of safety and fashion. An emphasis on a casual look, increased comfort, and hidden technology set the Zeros apart from all motorcycle shoes that have come before it.

The fact that most of the safety features are hidden was one of the reasons that we called this shoe the “Zeros”. When it comes to developing our product, we made Zero compromises. Finally, total freedom! You don’t have to choose between safety and comfort anymore.

We feel you should be able to be free of constraints when it comes to motorcycle footwear. The Zeros are a high top shoe that blurs the lines between performance and casual wear. These lightweight shoes are designed for all-day riding, comfort, and performance without cutting corners. 

The longer you ride, the more you realize the importance of motorcycle gear. Certainly our helmets, jackets, boots and gloves have become far more than just safety gear, but a part of our motorcycle lifestyle. Why does motorcycle gear have to be inconvenient and unstylish? The ROAME Zeros are here to redefine what motorcycle safety should look like.

With the ROAME Zeros we wanted to create a shoe that would offer motorcycle safety while complementing your lifestyle. Remember, it’s not if you’ll crash but when. If you ride long enough, you will go down. You need make sure you’re wearing the right gear to protect yourself when this happens.

First, add our small box to your motorcycle's existing turn signal/brake light system, then pair the shoes with this box. Once the shoes have been paired with this transmitter box, all you have to do is get on your bike and start riding. ROAME takes care of the rest.

It’s hard hard to see motorcycles because they have less mass than 4 wheel vehicles and therefore have a smaller road presence. Drivers notice an absence of cars, not the presence of a motorcycle. Motorcycles are roughly 1/6th the size of a 4-door sedan. That translates to a significant reduction in visibility.

We are almost lined up for first-run production, but we need help to get this off the ground. With the money we raise on Kickstarter we will finalize the electronics, get FCC approval, and place our first order.

From there, the sky’s the limit. If this campaign is a success, we hope to quickly expand our product offering and add more new designs to our collection, as we continue to make motorcycle safety comfortable and stylish. 

Growing up with motorcycles, Adam spent every possible moment on 2 wheels. When he started riding on the street in 2007, he quickly noticed a big problem. Motorcycle shoes were bulky, uncomfortable, and there was a great need on the road to be seen by other vehicles. This was the motivation over the last three years to bring the ROAME Zeros from concept to reality. 

Risks and challenges

Ship Date: We are confident we will ship by the projected dates, but know that we can run into unforeseen slow downs while working with our manufacturers. While there is always a chance that things will take longer than planned, our relationship with current manufacturers makes us feel confident we will meet the projected dates.

Product Changes: As we refine the Zeros based on additional community feedback and more product testing, slight changes may be made. We'll only make changes that enhance the product experience.
