I just want to update you all to let you know that as far as I am aware (I’m back in England, not at the factory so all of my information is second hand) we are still on for tooling completion and first “T1” samples by the time that Eurobike comes around at the end of August. These samples should be good enough to use for getting firm sales of the Morpher concept to major brands.
After that I am anticipating that T2 samples and (optionally, if the T2 samples aren’t good enough) T3 samples should take us towards the end of October (or November). After that I am hopeful that we will be able to begin to ship the first helmets to you.
One of you wrote to me privately to ask for a firm delivery date and I can only tell you what I keep on being told by the factory. I anticipate that you will have your helmets by the end of this year or at worst by Q1 2015. The factory and I am working hard to ensure that this is the case.
I am obviously aware of the rather awful irony that I am trying to produce a product to make cyclists safer and those of you that have bought this product may be putting off buying another helmet because you have invested in Morpher and don’t want to end up with two helmets; thus while production is delayed you are actually ending up without the protection that you and I both want you to have. I can only apologise and tell you that I will continue to try my hardest to get into production ASAP.
I’ll update you again as soon as I have any news.
I do talk about general cycle safety and helmet related news that you may find to be of interest, on Twitter. If you want to see this then follow us on @morpherhelmet
