Bike helmets can be clunky, ugly and hot. But the Faro, a new design from outdoor sports equipment company Unit 1, is none of these things.

The aesthetic design is minimalist and restrained, achieving ventilation without gigantic look-at-me slashes in the surface. And for nighttime safety’s sake, the front features an invisible-during-the-day visor headlight, a motion-detecting brake light at the rear, and even turn signals that can be operated by a remote on the handlebar.

You can get a better look at the features in the pitch video:

At press time the Faro was up to $121,790 in pledges on a $20,000 goal, with 47 days left to pledge on Kickstarter.
