Today, Gorgon Skatelights launched a 30-day Kickstarter campaign to raise $25,000 for the clip-on LED skate lights. Gorgon Skatelights is combating the problem of unsafe nighttime skating. Each year, avoidable tragedies occur when skaters are on the street at night. Drivers simply can’t see them. Gorgon Skatelights is here to provide the easiest and most effective skateboarding safety feature. Designed to be seen at night or in low-light conditions, Gorgon Skatelights make the streets a safer place for skaters and drivers alike.

Gorgon Skatelights offers a product that produces more impact than other competitors on the market. These lights are easily attached to any skateboard wheel, whether it be a regular, long, or small board- or even quad roller skates. There is no assembly required; the lights snap easily and securely onto the wheel. Gorgon Skatelights also eliminate the need for batteries by running on self-generated energy. Simply spin the wheel, and they light up. Unlike all other skate lights that only illuminate the underside of the skateboard, Gorgon Skatelights project their light outward. This feature makes the skater much more visible to drivers on the road.

“Staying safe while skating at night is a necessity,” said Jason Martinez, Founder and CEO of Gorgon Skatelights. “We really believe these skate lights will save lives, and the best part is that kids love them, so they don’t feel like they’re being given an extra chore to stay safe.”

Making sure safety is accessible to all skaters, Gorgon Skatelights is offering early bird pricing on Kickstarter for just $10 for a pack of four Skatelights. The skate lights will be offered in a variety of colors, which allows the consumer to mix and match however they like. For more information and to back the project, visit bit.ly/GorgonSkatelightsKS.
