Hammerhead Navigation is also a bike light for increasing your night visibility. it is a simple, functional and sleek bicycle accessories that any direction deprived, style-conscious bikers can asked for. this bike gizmo is currently on new crowd-funding platform Dragon Innovation seeking $145k to fund the development. you can get yours by making a $75 pledge. hit the jump an informative video clip to learn more.
