Instead of using a flashing set of red LEDs on the front and back of the helmet which really only makes you visible to others from just two sides, the Angel Bike Helmet features 2x5W LEDs that illuminate a strip of fiber optics wrapping all the way around the helmet, providing 360 degrees of high visibility. It also has the added bonus of making you look like you’ve got a saintly halo around your head, adding to your inflated sense of self-worth for choosing such an eco-friendly transportation alternative.
Not surprisingly the helmet’s 100% waterproof including the built-in USB charging port which is protected from the elements by a rubber gasket. And the wrap-around lighting can be switched to a flashing mode to help grab the attention of those you’re sharing the road with. Available from Firebox.com for ~$83.
