The response to our Kickstarter campaign has been fantastic! We made our goal in one day and we still can’t quite believe it. Thank you all for your support and really positive reactions to Litelok® .
To give you a little bit of a background, I’m a designer, former aeronautical engineer and keen cyclist. After working in London for many years, I was sick of carrying around thick metal chains that were heavy and impractical. I thought there had to be a better solution so my team and I took a radical new design approach to solve this problem. After 18 months of extensive design, R&D, late nights and constant testing, Litelok® launched last Thursday on Kickstarter.
We’ve received a number of great comments, suggestions and enquiries. Although it is impossible to satisfy everyone’s desires when it comes to Litelok®, we are working on an update to answer a lot of FAQ’s. We are listening carefully to all of the feedback and will be responding with exciting new features over the coming weeks and months.
The Kickstarter campaign has been tremendous fun so far and it is great to have all of you along for the ride too
