Why put lights on your bike when your actual gear can be the light? Starting with their T1 helmet, Torch has taken advantage of today’s light tech to create pieces with integrated illumination. Now they’ve made what you could call a huge move and incorporated a massive light system right into their new Flux pack’s actual material.
Check out how this thing works and see it in action past the break….
We first saw Torch’s Flux pack a few years ago and it look as if they’ve got it dialed and are now pushing a crowd funding campaign through Indiegogo to get it into production. The FLUX is a classic messenger style pack with a roll-top closure system. It uses a 1000 denier nylon outer shell and vinyl tarpaulin interior making it completely waterproof. The bag has a nice expansive opening making getting things in and out of the bag easier.
Operating the pack is easy with a shoulder strap mounted button. The button has a light built into it so to indicate the status of the pack’s light. The light system consists of LEDs connected to a 1mm thick flexible and waterproof fiber optic panel. To recharge or when cleaning the pack, the battery is easily removable and charges via USB.
The Flux is a full size pack with a 29L capacity giving you plenty of room for most daily needs. The Flux’s MSRP is $210, but if you act fast, you can get thier Early Bird Special for a little as $150 on their Indiegogo page.
