Smarthalo 2 raises $1.2 million on Kickstarter

Xavier Peich and company’s latest Smarthalo bike computer asked for $75,000 on Kickstarter. The gadget has now raised $1.2 million and counting.

“Designed by cyclists, for cyclists,” the SmartHalo 2 is the all-in-one connected device for bikes. It helps cyclists discover new routes with clear navigation signals, protects their bike with an ear-piercing anti-theft alarm and lights the way with a redesigned front light.

The Smarthalo2 also tracks and displays cycling metrics without having to push a single button, syncs fitness apps and keeps cyclists connected to what matters with the brand new, customizable PeekDisplay.

Smarthalo is a venture-backed, Montreal-based technology and design company. Over 25,000 cyclists in over 70 countries bought the company’s first product. It is distributed in Apple Stores, Amazon, Best Buy, Gravis, MoMa Design Stores, and more.

“We built SmartHalo to make cycling the future of urban mobility. We believe cycling is not merely a hobby or a sport – it’s a way of life. We want to share the joy of feeling the wind in your hair. To convince the world to cycle, we strive to build amazing cycling products that combine sophisticated technologies and elegant simplicity,” wrote Peich.
