Sucks for any of the early pre-order adopters...looks like they're out at least a $1k or so.

The tech has promise, so I hope it reemerges somehow in the near future.

Wow, can't say I'm surprised. Hopefully someone with some capital comes and scoops them up.

For the price point, and the pretty crappy helmet you got..... Im not too surprised.

Now if Arai made one of these helmets I'd be all over it

Preorders are a bad gamble. To save 10% and still have to wait, you get to risk your entire investment.
