    Thank you for posting this! I too am in the holding pattern that has become the reality for those of us who stupidly pre-ordered this item. Im so irritated and will definitely be returning them once received. I also sent a complaint to the FTC and P&D directly. They sent a BS response. No bad luck is this bad.

    I’ve been keeping my eye on this campaign. I backed in October 2018, right before the campaign was extended for another month and then left open to entice even more people in. The delays bothered me, but what bothered me even more is that the updates never apologised for the delay, or at least they didn’t until I started commenting about it. They made promises to update every 3 weeks and that target was never met. At the start of this year I’d got fed up, people were already asking for refunds and so I asked too. It took a few repeat emails but I did eventually get my refund. However since that, COVID has happened, more delays, more people have requested refunds and they’ve changed their policy on refunds so nobody will get one until they ship a helmet and you return it. At this point, I have no faith in this project coming through and I feel sorry for anyone who has lost money.

    (As I am no longer a backer all the comments I made on the funding page, plus any replies I received were instantly deleted (or hidden))
